2007 MINI Cooper S 2dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
This car is a perfect compromise daily driver. Good performance, comfort and economy. I'm getting over 35 MPG lately. Sure you can find a car that beats the MINI in a few areas but you can't find any car at any price that does all the things as well as the MINI does. It's worth the extra money you may need to pay for it. So far...
Handling is exceptional, comfortable and fun, a rare combination for economy cars. I really like the interior. It's actually exciting to come back to. Get one of the colorline feature colors that is a good accent to your car. I got the red with the checkered standard S dash. It's like a Porsche interior!
Water on the roof tends to drip into the car a bit when you lower the windows. Offer a model or option price delete without the pretend rear seats.
