2010 MINI Cooper S 2dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
When we purchased this MINI, I wasn't sure about it. I had liked the VW GTI, But hubby and daughter were sold on this..but now that I have driven it - I love it too! the gas mileage is great we are getting 33/36 mpg! and it is fun! I find that I have a bit more of a defensive driver as people tend to run you over. But our 16 yr loves it and I see that she is a better driver too. We had a Mustang GT, but this far better and we are glad we bought it! We keep it in sport mode for city driving (the turbo lag is the only thing I don't like) but Sport mode takes that away. Get the Mini Cooper S...and the good stereo.
Sport model is peppy, seats are comfortable, good handling, once you get use to the interior, love it. Great car to run about in, gas mileage is better than shown! (for us anyway)
Larger visors. Solid sun roof cover. The mesh is cheesy and doesn't work on keeping sun out! Get a good pair of sunglasses! Side mirrors could be a bit bigger for me.
