The Car Connection's Take

TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 MINI Cooper is a fun, smart, and practical way to get around, without giving up its sporty, quirky side. The 2014 Smart ForTwo is now an old design, but it remains the easiest car to park in cities, and it's at its best in urban traffic; the electric model, new last year, is the nicest of the bunch, and now remarkably cheap.
