Mini 5 Door
Base price: $22,240
Price as tested: $26,740 If you are looking for a small, sporty car but still need easy access to the back seat, the Mini 5 Door might have enough character to fit your needs. The base engine is surprisingly peppy, but those who love to drive will want the turbocharged Cooper S. We like: Few cars are more fun.
We’d like: Easier cabin controls Engine: 2.0-litre 4-cylinder Power/torque: 189 hp/207 lb-ft
Fuel consumption (L/100 km): 10.0 city, 7.0 hwy.
What’s best: The culture of Mini ownership might just be the most fun a consumer can have with their car.
What’s worst: Quirky interior design and layout makes learning how to operate controls a challenge.
Value for money: From the cars on this list, this is the one most likely to make you drive around with a silly grin.
