F56 MINI Hits US Dealers This Weekend

It’s time for the launch parties and test drives. In fact dealers on the east side of North America have had several F56 delivered and we’ve heard more than a few readers have already gotten behind the wheel.

Here’s a quick sample of MF reader Sal and his first drive:

I got to test drive my F56 Cooper S, last night. It arrived at the dealership early. It is unbelievably improved. It is a tighter more comfortable ride than the R56 S yet the engine is a revelation of refinement and power. I have owned two R56’s, an S hatch and a Clubman S. This is definitely a totally different car.

What about you? If you’ve driven or seen the F56 in person let us know your thoughts in the comment section below and don’t forget the photos.
