    The New Mini: Fun Tor Drive, Big On The Outside But Small On The Inside — Great car to drive. Due to being a bit hefty for a "Mini", more power would be great (I would recommend the S if you have the money). A beautiful car inside and out. But don't let the retro design fool you, it drives brilliantly. Handling, braking and suspension are superb. Basically, the new Mini is a go-kart for adults. If you want a fun daily driver that you can throw around this is the one.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: - Superb handling/suspension and brakes
    - Beautiful interior and design  - Fun to drive

    Cons: - No cargo space  - Back seats good for 2 "little" people (maybe)
    - Lacking power, primarily at high speeds/high speed passing

    Best Car — Very good car for someone who is looking into buying this car should. Performance wise, not a whole lot just 163bhp. Cost of ownership has been good. This car is a blast to drive, take it to a track!! Best car

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: The thought that people think its a slow Mini Cooper not the S

    Cons: The heat shield knocking against the exhaust will fix that soon

    Mini Cooper S A Fun Car — The car is extremely fun and once you get to around 200hp you will be extremely satisfied with it the car almost never fails to put a smile on your face. As far as handling goes I have yet to find anything better.

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: Its agility and miles per gallon

    Cons: Can't carry that many friends

    A Small/fun To Drive Car — Mini's are either liked or hated (not much in between). I would have to recommend the S version that includes the turbo. These are fun cars to drive and are very forgiving when tossed into a corner, due to their front-wheel drive power train.

    Pros: Fun, responsive, and a little quirky.

    Cons: Maybe small for some...

    Loved It, Miss It. I Want Another One — Acceleration, braking and handling were great. Never had any problem with it for the 4 years I drove it. Until the tires needed to be replaced, which was $200 each... Gas mileage was ok. Not great. This car was really fun to drive. Loved it.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Fun to drive, if you like go carts

    Cons: space is limited

    One Of My Many Dream Cars! — Performance wise the acceleration is quicker than needed and the handling is excellent near the racing quality but still a little play and the braking is very responsive. the gas mileage on this vehicle is excellent but the maintenance can be expensive since it is a European car.

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: compact and quick; Rally purpose!

    Cons: lack of space!

    You Know You Want To Drive This Car. — Good acceleration, a bit too heavy car though. Bad quality of plastics inside, really good looking, fun to drive, hard suspension. A bit too heavy a gas drinker, maintainance and sevicing too expensive as well. Good brakes, nearly perfect handling.

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: It gives you lots of fun on the road.

    Cons: Expenses.
