Not surprised actually. It is motortrend after all. They blasted the first gen mini for having tiny cupholders rather than how it drove.

OK article. I will give the Countryman an honest try when it comes out and my lease is done. It does suit my driving that I do up in the country and cottage. I really do love my Clubman and would like to see that all4 4door concept come out that looks like the clubman.

As for the Juke, it really is ugly. Lose one of the sets of lights and it would be alright.

I think if you read it with a sense of what the editors are comparing both FROM vs each other...

Obviously the Countryman is not gonna be as nimble a the hatch...
BUT
Obviously the JUKE is going to be significantly better than the ROGUE/Murano

The scoring is subjective, but it will take a real comparison drive to figure out which one feels better...

Then again, each will have a niche for these cars. I expect a lot of cross shopping when both debut in North America.
