    .............................................................

    This is the updated MINI Cooper S!

    Mat’s got his hands on this newly-updated 5-door hatch (which, as ever, is also available as a 3-door) to find out whether this new Cooper S can stand up again class leaders such as the Ford Fiesta or Volkswagen Polo.

    When it comes to performance, there’s three engine options to choose from - the 1, the Cooper and the Cooper S. We’ve got our hands on the Cooper S for this review, so our 5-door hatch is powered by a 2-litre 4 cylinder turbo petrol with 178hp. All options are front-wheel-drive, although you can choose between a manual or automatic gearbox.

    But of course, performance probably isn’t the first reason you’ll choose the MINI - it’s the looks! Even though it may be unmistakably a MINI, the question is, are you happy with how the exterior looks have evolved over the years? Do you think the new edition looks better than ever, or do you still prefer older generations?

    Let us know in the comments!

We don't have much of a selection of cars in this class in the US. Admittedly, we did not look at the cars that might be considered competitors. We are happy with our new MINI: the design, the added standard features, the build quality and the driving experience.

I sold mine because of the terrible brakes and fragile, delicate, bad BAD Pirelli Cinturato P4 run flat tyres. If you brake at high speeds the car goes everywhere except to the front. The reason BMW (mini) gave me was that MÍNI brake system is corrective instead of the much better preventive brakes in BMW models.

I think that was an unfair review as it seemed to me you just pick the bones out of it if that was a honest opinion I think that you come across that you just don’t like minis therefore you shouldn’t give a review sorry to be like this 🇬🇧🇬🇧👍

You say your Galaxy S20 Ultra does not fit, but your phone is easily one of the BIGGEST phones that you can buy today. It is as big as the biggest iPhone 12. So if you use the normal iPhone 12 which is pretty common, it should fit.

I bougth recently a Mini Cooper 5 doors from 2017 and I must admit that I am surprised with how good it drives. I have never driven before a car that is so much fun. There are some points that are compromised but in general I think the experience you get is it muth worth it and this you can't find it in most of the small cars.

You've got some front @carwow, I'll give you that. I had two prospective enquiries and then one final roll of the dice to buy a high spec 3-dr Cooper S at the end of last year. Each time, only two dealers replied and both were from the same group and had the same person doing the prices. I queried it with you twice and was ignored. I eventually beat the three year PCP cost by over £1,000 in three phone calls. So do you care to answer that? How are you helping the buyer there? Is Mini a very specific case or do you have this issue with other manufacturers?

I’ve got a 2016 Cooper S 5dr with the Works 210 tune and exhaust. Great fun to drive, but the brakes are a bit underwhelming. I do wonder why they reduced the power output from 192 to 178bhp for the new ones. Along with the PPF ruining the exhaust sound, they seem a far less appealing choice now.

I love the Mini! I don't find it girly, because you can make it look quiet mean with that piano black exterieur. I love the looks even more with the LCI2. It drives like a charm, it's so compact and nimble, really enjoyable. I just wish there was a 5 door JCW, that's so sad!

It's a dogs dinner of a design, it's long overdue a massive revamp and a complete overhaul of the looks, the engines and the purpose... oh and the name... if we're still calling this a "mini", I'll start calling Buckingham Palace a "pokey little hovel". This is going up against VW's Golf GTi (not Polo... it's twice the size of a polo) and it loses in every single area. What was once a cool and quirky revised concept of the old mini has become a tired, staid, dull, tedious, predictable bore fest!... but more concerning than all these things... what the f*ck is he doing pooring water into that cup holder!?!?! This guy is a muppet... Every car I see him review he seems to want to ruin, bash, destroy or just make a mess of... he was literally jumping up and down on the sills of the R8 in a different video... grow up you sad twat
