The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
7.2
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 2014 Mazda MX-5 Miata is the lightest, leanest sports roadster you can buy for small-time money today--and it has a rich history of happy owners.
