TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 Honda Civic is refined, comfortable, and offers top-notch safety ratings and features. The 2015 MINI Cooper hardtop is a slightly larger car with all the virtues of earlier MINIs and fewer drawbacks; it's nicer and quieter inside, the base car is closer to the Cooper S in performance, and it retains the rollerskate handling and cheeky character it's always had. The shadow cast by the FR-S is a long one, but the 2015 tC manages to have an interesting personality on its own.
