2009 MINI Cooper Clubman S 3dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
After driving an Infiniti FX-45 for 4 years, when gas hit $4 I got tired of 13 MPG. I wanted something sporty, unique, and borderline practical. A regular Mini was too small, but the Clubman was love at first sight. I'm 6'4" and it's as comfortable as most full sized cars. It is a blast to drive, a definite show stopper in parking lots, and is averaging 26/35 MPG. I just wish someone had warned me that Minis are like Harleys - the initial purchase is just the start, then you become obsessed with everything Mini! Oh well, everybody needs a few vices in life.
Looks, handling, paddle shifters, amazing heated seats, the stares and smiles you get while driving it
