2007 MINI Cooper S 2dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
This little car is the most fun car I have ever owned. It is also the most fuel efficient vehicle I've ever owned. Combine it with practicality of a hatchback and you have the most perfect little car in the world. Get a 6 speed and you will have the most fun one can have in a car with clothes on. Even with aggressive driving, I still get better than 30 mpg city/hwy. If I am cruising on freeway, I get about 38 mpg. But with the traction control off I can burn the rubber anytime I want to!
Fun handling even with the stock suspension. And awesome fuel efficiency that make hybrid cars sweat. Hatchback that is big enough for a laundary washer. Runflat tires! The head-turning cute look that never wears out! Aggressive exhaust note from the factory! Turboboost!
Rattles here and there. Make the engine to run on regular gas instead of premium gas.
