Australia's The Motor Report Give 2015 MINI JCW Four Stars

The Motor Report offers this "Verdict" on the 2015 MINI Cooper John Cooper Works:
Is there something for everyone in the new JCW? Not a smouldering chance.

Those stubborn buggers at MINI deserve a pat on the back for serving up a car that is still (beneath all the electronics) raw, hard-edged, and an absolute hoot to drive.

Refinement isn’t the name of the game - in fact, name one race car that ever won on a track based on its exemplary comfort - this little belter is about making you feel as if you’re at the helm of something "built to win".

And while the price of admission might seem a little high, its potency (both under-bonnet, and in handling terms) makes it a unique proposition within its class.
