TreeAngle's First Drive Review Of The 2015 MINI JCW

TreeAngle, run by freelance journalist Bayu Hermawan, formerly of Motor Trend, does a first drive review of the 2015 MINI JCW Hatchback and has this to say, among other things:
. . . Although the newest, sharpest Mini is on the expensive side, the JCW Hardtop is not without tremendous merit. Initial build quality is high with well-weighted controls, premium interior materials, and MINImal (to borrow Mini’s terminology) obnoxious ergonomics prevalent in earlier Minis. The new Brembos are stellar, and although we would have loved to try the standard suspension setup, the JCW is a blast at eight-tenths on rural twisty roads. It is pricey, but value is relative. . . .
