TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2017 Mini Cooper is still one of the most fun cars to drive on the road today. The 2017 Nissan Juke is best considered as the sportiest pick among subcompact crossovers, but it does come at a price. A versatile, retro throwback, the Volkswagen Beetle offers a decent value but not a lot of high-tech features... kind of like the original.
