After taking off our rose-colored glasses, and considering our long-term Mini Cooper S alongside the Ford SVT Focus, do we still adore our Mini? Well, sure. We aren't so fickled as to allow our editorial pendulum to swing from love to hate after a week's worth of competitive testing. But if asked by a roving man on the street which car is our recommendation in the sporty hatchback category, we would have to put our long-term Mini relationship aside, and admit that the SVT Focus offers greater cargo capacity, a softer ride and more intuitive interior features. In short, the Ford provides a better real-world experience, and in this case, does so for $1,245 less

Sheesh, that's the worst 0-60 time for an SVT Focus I've seen in awhile (8.6 seconds). Ironically despite the praise heaped on it by the automotive press, the SVT goes away.

I considered the Mini Cooper before purchasing the Focus. Bottom line, I got priced out of the game by Cali yuppies trying to recapture their youth and be the first on the block with the latest retro car, and with the disposable income to make that happen. So, I'm not a big fan of most Mini drivers on the road.

I was in pretty much the same boat svt4me....except im in PA. The mini is hot car, but I'll wait 5-10 years when they are hopefully less popular among the snotty. The Mini moves and handles nicely, but I liked the total package of the SVT better.
