2014 Mini Cooper Hardtop First Drive, Photo Gallery

2014 Mini Cooper Hardtop First Drive

A small squad of new Mini Cooper Hardtops was flinging around the narrow mountain roads of Puerto Rico Thursday as journalists tested the redesigned icon. I piloted a bright Volcanic Orange Mini Cooper S with a six-speed automatic and one Deep Blue Cooper with a six-speed manual transmission, and both impressed more than the tropical view.

Update: Read the Full 2014 Mini Cooper Hardtop Review

The day started with the Cooper S. Its new 189-horsepower, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder, making 207 pounds-feet of torque, is seriously refined. There's no quirky Mini attitude in this powerplant. It powered ascensions through mountain passes with steady bursts of acceleration between shifts.

2014 Mitsubishi Mirage Cars.com Review

2014MitsubishiMirage

Our mothers told us that if we don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all. But if Cars.com reviewer Jennifer Geiger had listened to her mother, her critique of the 2014 Mitsubishi Mirage would be shorter than the inexpensive microcar is small. So let's just say that the Mirage has surprisingly decent cargo space and superior fuel economy compared to its competitors, and leave it at that. But for all the stuff Geiger's mom told her not to say — about the Mirage's ride, handling, cabin quality, passenger comfort — read her review below.

2014 Jeep Cherokee Video

The "It's a Jeep thing … " crowd doesn't need convincing, but converts will be made by the 2014 Jeep Cherokee. Cars.com reviewer David Thomas was wowed by the all-new compact SUV's "daring design" and sophisticated interior, and he gave high marks to the performance of the groundbreaking nine-speed automatic transmission when paired with the 270-horsepower V-6. Thomas wasn't smitten, however, with the Cherokee's ho-hum profile. While he found the expansive tailgate a head-scratcher, he suggested a creative use for fans of British boy bands, so watch the video and learn.

2013 Bentley Mulsanne Cars.com Review

2013BentleyMulsanne

If you're trying to keep up with the Joneses, and the Joneses just bought a Bentley Mulsanne, you might want to try keeping up with, say, the Friedmans or the Jenkinses instead. The 2013 Mulsanne sedan Cars.com reviewer Aaron D. Bragman tested costs about $364,000 — roughly seven times the median household income. The to-infinity-and-beyond luxuriousness of the interior, muscle-car-rivaling performance and limitless customization make the Mulsanne worth every last cent for the 1 percent. Read Bragman's review while calculating in your head how many Nissan Versas go into a Mulsanne.

2014 Chevrolet SS Cars.com Review

2014ChevroletSS

You want a Camaro's visceral thrill but need a sedan's everyday practicality. Chevrolet aims to offer the best of both worlds with the 2014 SS, its first high-performance, rear-wheel-drive sedan since Bill Clinton won a second term in the Oval Office. Cars.com reviewer Aaron D. Bragman says the new SS delivers, boasting a powerful 415-horsepower, 6.2-liter V-8 and a comfortable, high-quality interior. The sedan's generic looks are forgettable, but with a 5-second zero-to-60 mph time, all anyone will see is a passing streak anyway. Read Bragman's review below.

2014 Honda Accord Hybrid Cars.com Review

2014-honda-accord-hy

Honda's midsize sedan is one of the best in the class, and a new hybrid model with impressive fuel economy promises to make the 2014 Accord even more appealing — at least on paper, says Cars.com reviewer David Thomas. During Thomas' test, however, the sedan fell short of its 50/45/47 mpg city/highway/combined EPA rating. Still, plenty of features, pleasing road manners and a comfortable cabin should earn the hybrid model a place on shoppers' lists.
