If this and the banana MG ZR were parked side by side, full of optimax on a sunny Sunday morning, which drivers door would you walk towards James?

An excellent question Danny. Right now, it would be the MG.

I know, total heresy, but the MG was just a sweeter driving car and although it is down a bit on power (or more likely, torque) compared to the Mini, it just gave a much more cohesive driving experience. Everything just seemed to work together. The Mini by contrast seems to be hamstrung by the heaviness of the steering, the awkward clutch/gearbox combo and fidgety ride that never settles down.


The engine is better though, and I said to my brother last weekend if I could have the Mini engine in the MG ZR that really would be perfect.
