MINI Cooper

For this year, or really since the hatchback was revamped in 2008, the MINI Cooper's styling hasn't changed much. And it doesn't need to--it's a picture-perfect homage to the original MINI, though it's grown considerably larger for the modern era, with its 15-inch wheels outsizing the original 10-inchers, and the higher front end couching all sorts of safety gear. It's a little kitschy--the smiling grille, the wide patches of chrome, the bug-eye headlamps--and utterly endearing. It's true inside, too, where the Cooper fits a dash that's wild with circles, winged shapes, chromed switches, and a 160-mph speedometer sitting dead center. You want fun? The MINI Cooper puts fun on every surface.
