Autocar have today published a glowing road test review of the F56 Cooper S against the Audi A1 1.4 TFSI S-line s tronic (182hp), Ford Fiesta ST2 (182hp)and Citroën DS3 1.6 THP DSport (155hp).


In conclusion the magazine says:


"Of the remaining two, I'm going to give the win to the Mini, and Ford should be rightly proud that it has taken a car as impressive as the Cooper S to beat it."


They prefer the Fiesta dynamically, though only just, but as an overall package prefer the Cooper S.

Next week (2 April) they will have a full test of the Cooper S and this weeks Auto Express tests a Cooper D - but does it count as they have all been recalled!

this is a paper review right? from a magazine?


Yes, published on Wednesday. Give it a little while and it should appear on the website.


As Dave says Autocar are doing a full road test of the Cooper S next week. This will measure everything - acceleration times in each gear, braking distances, noise inside the cabin etc.
