The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

7.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 MINI Cooper is a fun, smart, and practical way to get around, without giving up its sporty, quirky side. The nimble driving feel and good gas mileage of the 2014 Mazda 2 help it stand out among entry-level hatchbacks--but buyers will have to be comfortable with a limited feature set and a simple interior.
