2016 MINI John Cooper Works
CAR REVIEW83%
VIEW FULL SCORE
The latest John Cooper Works is the most powerful Mini ever
Pros Bigger mill adds more power; improved handling and ride comfort
Cons Priced like a compact, sized like a subcompact; steering could use a bit more feel
Value for money Good
What would I change? Adding traction at all four wheels could turn this FWD Mini into a Volkswagen Golf R rival
How I would spec it? Except for adding the adjustable suspension, I’d choose the stick and forego the trim and infotainment options
