2014 Mini Cooper: Sassy Yet Well-Behaved
December 25, 2014
If good things come in small packages, does that mean the slightly larger 2014 Mini Cooper has lost some of its playful spirit?
Not at all. It's still a bundle of fun wrapped up in a small car. Despite being highly revised for 2014, the Mini retains its sporty character and eternal cuteness.
Our long-term Mini Cooper does not have the Sport suspension, but it still rides plenty stiff, which I don't mind at all. While you may feel like you're bouncing around a little on the freeway, the Mini maintains its composure. Its eager steering keeps you engaged as it enthusiastically follows even your slightest movement of the steering wheel.
The word pert comes to mind. But you can trust it to not get too raucous.
What's your favorite small car?
