Of course they reviewed it. Glowing review as we have come to expect from this car. They even _almost_ liked the slushbox.
>Although the automatic Cooper S Clubman feels very good when you’re running hard, it doesn’t adapt well to a life of low-speed stop-and-go driving. Throttle response is sluggish in these situations, and while hitting the Sport button quickens it up, progress isn’t entirely smooth. What’s more, pressing this button locks the transmission into its Sport mode, resulting in shift points that are too aggressive in heavy traffic.
Great review. Very much worth the read.
