MPG: 28 City / 37 Hwy

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.
