MINI’s March Madness

March Madness, one of the most anticipated seasons for sports fanatics is currently underway. If you're lucky enough to have a decent bracket still in play, then kudos. But regardless, basketball fans from every region look forward to the spring when teams from across the nation face off to see who will win the coveted title of NCAA Tournament champion.


With the Final Four games coming to town next week, this concept got us thinking: who would come out on top if MINI's latest 2018 models were forced to face off? We've picked four of our favorite models and featured some of their best stats. You get to pick the champion!
