Autoweek Reviews The 2015 MINI Cooper JCW

Associate Autoweek editor Jay Ramey decides:
. . . Is the JCW package worth it?

The base Coopers are also available with manual transmissions, and even though the sport modes in those cars don’t quite match up to the performance that the JCW offers, I have trouble seeing myself shelling out the premium required for the hotter model.
