    1406732460

    Competitors in the small-car segment didn't do nearly as well. Four vehicles earned "poor" grades. Only one small car out of 12 tested earned a good grade in the latest round of crash-test results compiled by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. The Mini Cooper Countryman received a ...

    Report: Mini bringing new 230-hp John Cooper Works to Detroit
    1404734400

    Mini models may keep getting incrementally bigger, but then so do their engines. Or more powerful, anyway – especially when it comes to the John Cooper Works performance models. The JCW version of the first (post-revival) generation R50, which was really more of an upgraded Cooper S than ...

    Video: Street Glory Mappers turning cars into dynamic billboards like this
    1404500460

    A French marketing firm with the impenetrable name of Street Glory Mappers is literally turning cars into billboards. Of course, we've all seen vehicles painted up for promotional use, but this company is taking that concept even further by including video. Street Glory Mappers equips the ...

    Review: 2014 Mini Cooper S
    Striking The Balance Its Predecessor Never Could 1403884620

    One of the big challenges as an automotive journalist is reviewing cars that you have a personal connection to. I have a strong passion for Minis. My first new car was a 2004 Cooper S, and I still own a 2006 model. It's this affinity that's left me with a general disdain of the 2007 to 2013 model ...

    Video: Remember that world-record jump crash? Here's every angle, including the human one
    1403481000

    While there are those who watch automotive exploits hoping (secretly or otherwise) for a spectacular crash, most of us are happy when everything goes smoothly. But at the end of the day, a daring stunt wouldn't be a daring stunt if there weren't some element of danger. And make no mistake about ...

    1402680540

    The small, high-quality and relatively inexpensive GoPro camera has been revolutionary for Internet video, especially of cars.

    1401975000

    UPDATE: Information on US availability, specification and nomenclature added to the updated text below. Few automakers have managed to spin off as many variants of essentially one vehicle as Mini has. The second generation produced even more versions than the first, and now that the third ...

    Official: Lego Mini Cooper coming in August [w/video]
    1401915660

    Lego isn't just for kids anymore. A while back, the company cleverly realized that adults liked its connecting blocks as much as kids but wanted a more sophisticated project to take on. It offers a whole set of Expert models, including a wickedly cool Volkswagen Bus from a few years ago. Now, ...

    Report: Mini's Superleggera concept could see production; here's what it might look like
    1401489000

    We fell in love with the Mini Superleggera Vision Concept from the moment we laid eyes on it. The little convertible blends retro and modern together better than any Mini in years. There is even more good news about the roadster as well because the company is considering actually building it. We ...

    Spy Shots: Mini testing new JCW on the Nürburgring Nordschleife
    1401214500

In the past month alone, the Anglo-Saxon automaker revealed its quirky, one-off Paceman Adventure pickup and dazzled showgoers over the weekend at the Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este with the Superleggera Vision concept. But what enthusiasts (to say ...

    Video: Tony Hawk jumps a moving Mini
    1401062460

    Remember a couple of years ago when Tony Hawk jumped over a Lexus LFA on his skateboard? Well that was nothing compared to what he's done here. Sure the LFA is a more impressive car than a Mini hatchback, but that Japanese supercar was sitting still when the world's most famous skater jumped ...

    Official: Mini Superleggera Vision is the all-electric roadster Mini needs to make
    1400876700

    It could be argued that Mini has not built a pretty car since the R53, the first of the reborn Minis, was put out to pasture at the end of 2006. I've owned two R53s, so yes, I'm horribly biased. The styling situation in Oxford hasn't improved much for 2014, either, as the bigger, more ...

    Spy Shots: Mini five-door spotted alongside next Clubman
    1400092140

    Is Mini constricting its staggering array of model variants or expanding it? That depends largely on which way you look at it. Because while some models may not make the cut as the second-generation family is gradually replaced with the third, others appear to be joining the fold. They just might ...

    Yesterday, we brought you the news of the existence of this Mini Paceman Adventure tiny truck, and the story of how it came to be.

    Report: Mini interns turn Paceman into Adventure pickup
    1398351660

    With coupes and convertibles, hatchbacks and crossovers, Mini has done just about every bodystyle we could think of, and then a few more as concepts. But it hasn't done a pickup. At least it hadn't until now. What we have here is a Mini Paceman (that, of course, being the coupe version of the ...

    Video: 2015 Mini Cooper S does best gymkhana impersonation in Malaysia

    Mini Malaysia wants you - at least those of you in Southeast Asia - to know that the new Mini has a riptide of adrenaline and sharp teeth underneath its larger, more ergonomically efficient exterior. To make the point it enlisted the aid of Putrajaya roads, local agency Saatchi & Saatchi ...

    New York: Mini lifts veil on refreshed Countryman in New York
    1397683200

    When Mini introduced the Countryman in 2010, it emerged as the brand's first crossover, its first five-door model and its first to offer all-wheel drive. It also arrived mid-lifecycle in the last generation of Mini Cooper hatchback, with which it shares little more than a passing family ...

    Quick Spin: 2014 Mini John Cooper Works Countryman All4
    Turn A Cool Little CUV Into A Mess For Just $7,000 1397242680

    The standard Mini Countryman is a bit of an odd duck against the backdrop of 'normal' small crossovers like the Mazda CX-5 and the Ford Escape, but I sort of get it. Apply the same winning Mini formula to a CUV, and you get a smaller-than-average entry in the segment, one that is far more ...
