2011 MINI Cooper Clubman S 3dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
I've owned the car for a week now - ~350 miles. Achieved 29.5 mpg on the first tank, in mixed city/highway driving (a good bit of idling in traffic), and the current tank is at 36 mpg for highway and some errands. Great power, even though I'm still breaking it in, and the steering is immediate. Good steering feel, too, the car magazines are wrong on that count. Great stereo (Harmon Kardon/Sirius XM), and very comfortable driving position (I'm 6'1", 230lbs.). I'm going to keep my Lexus LS, but probably drive this a whole lot more.
Content level, looks, economy, and the key fob is the coolest!
cup holders aren't perfectly placed, other than that-absolutely no complaints.
