Track Rivals II: Cooper vs. Golf. vs. Mazda3

Along with the various crossovers that I tested at MINI’s Rock the Rivals event, I also got to sample the regular Cooper, VW Golf, and Mazda3 back to back.Driving crossovers around a track gives a good idea of how close to a regular car an auto maker can get, but driving their regular cars gives a good idea of how good their regular cars can get. The track was pouring even harder than it was for the crossover portion, but the track was different as well, a lot more to do and even a nice sweeper.
