The Mini's great, but these days there are lots of cars that can give you coolness with a small size and price.
The Mini Cooper is cool. No question about it. It somehow manages to be cute yet rakishly masculine at the same time. It's small and fuel efficient, yet no-one questions its performance credentials. It may not be the fastest car but it cuts a curve nicely.
With its success, the Mini has taught the car world a lesson. In small cars: personality sells. So now, those of us shopping for a subcompact that's both stylish and fun have a number of great choices.
