2008 MINI Cooper Clubman S 3dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
I was looking for a reliable comuter car and looked at the Honda Fit, Nissan Versa, and the Clubman. Of the 3 the Mini offered the Get-Up-&-Go I was looking for with the "S" model. I test drove both models on the AutoBahn here in Germany. What really sold me was the turbo, in both 5th & 6th gear the pick up to get around other vehicles was very impressive. I also tested the fit for my Rottie with the rear seats down she has enough room to move around realitively comfortably.
I have all 4 packages on mine, but the feature that I like the most is the cold winter options from the heated seats to the heated windshield jets.
I would refine the Ipod adaptor cable and location. Move them from under the center stack to the arm rest.
