2007 MINI Cooper S 2dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
Bought the car about 2 months ago and never had so much fun driving. I am taking long way to work and making detours! This car is both sporty and eco-friendly. The turbo provides wonderful torque in the twisties yet is economical to drive on the highway in 6th. As some teenagers that walked by my house put it, 'This is a sick ride man !'.
Turbo engine and great handling in on top of the list. Very convenient also with hatch and folding seat feature. Try loading as much stuff in a Miata !
North America needs the diesel version also (Cooper D). Almost as much fun and over 60 mpg !
