MINI Roadster review - Auto Express

We get behind the wheel of the new MINI Roadster in Cooper S guise - can it rival the big-selling Mazda MX-5? Full review: http://www.autoexpress.co.uk/carreviews/firstdrives/277903/mini_roadster.html Subscribe to Auto Express magazine and get 6 issues for £1 plus a free gift: http://subscribe.autoexpress.co.uk/yt The MINI Roadster is much more than a soft-top version of the Coupe. It's the first open-topped MINI two-seater ever and the first genuine affordable roadster rival to the MX-5. Prices start from £25 more than the cheapest Mazda, at £18,015. To succeed in the roadster market, and make the sums add up, you need big sales. Mazda has managed this, but nobody else has yet. MINI may have found a way in through the back door, with the hatchback, Convertible, Coupe and now the Roadster all essentially re-clothed versions of the same car.

Volkswagen Golf Cabriolet (convertible) review - CarBuyer
Volkswagen Golf Cabriolet 2014 review: http://bit.ly/K0YCsI Subscribe to the Carbuyer YouTube channel: http://bit.ly/17k4fct Subscribe to Auto Express: http://subscribe.autoexpress.co.uk/cb The Volkswagen Golf Cabriolet is based on the standard hatchback, so the cabin is identical, which means excellent build quality, use of some very durable materials and plenty of practical storage cubbies. There's room for four adults inside, and from behind the wheel there is very little to tell the Cabriolet from the normal hatch, with only large bumps making the suspension feel unsettled. Front and rear LED lights are fitted as standard, which enhances the car's upmarket feel.
