MINI owner and self-described MINI enthusiast, Brandon Turkus, has penned a comprehensive review of the 2014 MINI Cooper S for Autoblog. Brandon’s is an interesting perspective, since he’s both part of the automotive press, and also a MINI fan. As such, he’s asking a lot of the same questions I’ve had on my mind:
Before the third-generation of the reborn Mini Cooper S landed in my driveway, I couldn’t help but wonder whether the model would continue its slide towards mass appeal, or if it would re-embrace the enthusiast realm with a stronger driver-focused mission. As I found out during my week with the car, it was a bit of both.
His review is a great perspective, with praise and criticism alike for the new MCS. Read it for yourself, over on Autoblog.
