Has anyone seen the results of the annual 'Driver Power' survey, published in AutoExpress this week?
The first generation MINI was placed 99th out of 100, and the second generation was 40th out of 100 (with 100 being the worst).
What do people think?!

All the cars surveyed seem to slip down the rating each year as they get older but the 2nd Generation MINI does seem to be much improved in most of the categories.........but the character of the MINI means it will probably never perform that well in things like Ride Quality and Practicality.
