The Car Connection's Take

7.6
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 Scion tC coupe has an interesting personality, made a bit better this year, but it's standing in the shadow of the excellent FR-S sports car.
