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.
