Read the Honest John Review

  • MINI John Cooper Works (2008 - 2013)
    Very quick and outrageous fun, yet still emits a reasonable 165g/km and has potential for 40mpg. Available as hatch, convertible and Clubman.
  • MINI Hatch (2007 - 2013)
    Great performance from Cooper S, much smoother and more sophisticated than first generation, capable of travelling distances in comfort.
