Recent road tests of the 3-Door MINI Cooper

Published on October 31 2018

The three-door MINI Cooper is a legend of the automotive world. Since returning in 2002, the MINI has generated a lot of enthusiasm and passion and that hasn’t changed today. Let's take a look at recent reviews of the three-door MINI Cooper.

Finally, the MINI’s big personality shines through its driving dynamics. What you’ve heard about MINIs is still true: they are ridiculously fun to drive and make you feel all kinds of cheeky while behind the wheel. I’m a big believer that cars don’t need to have tons of horsepower to be a lot of fun — they need to be engaging and communicative and MINI nails it with this hatchback. 

Heavy and communicative steering and a stiff, playful suspension make even a short jaunt to the store a reason to act a fool. The suspension helps the MINI handle like a sports car, but might be too stiff for some folks during the day-to-day commute. The payoff in driving dynamics is 100 percent worth it in my books, however – Autotrader.com

The real light magic is in the back, where the brake lights have been upgraded to feature the Union Jack with the LED upgrade. The flag is integrated into the light function, with the turn signals serving as the horizontal elements and brake lights the vertical. The tail lights are the diagonal lines. 

Overall, the mid-generation updates are rather minor. The upside is that Mini has preserved the many virtues of these small cars—namely the efficiency, handling, and fun factor—while addressing some control issues and adding to the distinctive character – Consumer Reports
