MINI reviews pages added

MINI Lineup

For the past few years, we have created lists of reviews from major automotive magazines and websites each time a new MINI model launched.  Recent lists were compiled for the 2014 MINI Hardtop and 2013 MINI Paceman.

To make these lists easier to find, we have combined them on the new MINI reviews page which is linked from the top menu.  The comprehensive lists have been updated since their original posting, as well.

The list or reviews currently includes:

2008 MINI Clubman

2011 MINI Countryman

2012 MINI Coupe

2012 MINI John Cooper Works Countryman

2012 MINI Roadster

2013 MINI John Cooper Works GP

2013 MINI Paceman

2014 MINI Hardtop

We will continue to update all the lists and will be adding more lists going all the way back to the original MINI Cooper launch in 2001 (UK) and 2002 (US).

If there is a well-written review (or well-produced video review) that we have missed, please let us know in the comments below.
