Mini Cooper a good car for a short guy?
post #1

Hi ateyelevel! I am not a fan of big cars and am in the market for a new car (new to me). The four cars that I am considering right now are all small and look sporty. They are

 

       
  • Mini Cooper 2015
  •    
  • Volkswagen GTI
  •    
  • Honda Civic Coupe
  •    
  • Toyota Prius

 

I know the prius is a very different car, but it is a cheap hybrid. I have friends who say nothing but good things about that car. The mini cooper has a nice interior and updated panel controls. The GTI just looks cool when you mod it. The Civic is a boring, boring car but is great for a guy of my sisze.

 

If you had to choose between all four and had the money, which one would you buy?

Any 2 door. Civic, RSX, S2000, 370Z, TT, etc.

Look at the Hybrids also.

I had a mini cooper and loved the way it looked, but hated the way it drove.

I drive an Infiniti G37 coupe. If I couldn't afford it, I'd go with the Honda Accord Coupe (White). The body isn't too big. It looks sporty, and the resale value will stay high for the life of the car as long as you are responsible and maintain it regularly.

I like sports cars, so that would rule out any sedans. The smaller the better, but not too small.

 

Honda Civic LX (Leather/Sunroof)

Cadillac CTS Coupe

NIssan 350Z

Infinit G37 Coupe

 

The mini cooper looks girly to me. It's something about the body shape that I don't like, so I personally wouldn't get that. Most coupes are a little more expensive than their Sedan counterparts and the insurance will basically be higher, so you have to factor that in.
