The new Rebel: Expensive and only 65mpg

This: The New Candy Apple Red Rebel.

Does not get the mileage we all have grown to love.

143 HP but the torque is far better than any other Stock Mini!

The Diesel actually does get 65 to 74mpg!

65 to 74mpg? Sounds a bit like a Rebel to me.

Of course, we want it to lean, and this model does not do much of that!
It does allow for some fresh air though.
and best of all, no helmet required!

If you have a 65 inch TV and use it as a Monitor, put this in 720 and have a real good look at it..

Oh, might have to turn the volume down a bit.. Double click on it, then go full screen then change it to 720...

Better than the crap mileage I got with my Harley V-rod.....guess that's why it has been sold

Loud pipes save lives...Nah, they just sound cool.

That's a great car, I would love to have a mini cooper s that looked like that. It would be great on the bad roads we sometimes get in the winter around here.

Does the Mini-Cooper lean in the corners?

While I do admit it's cute, it doesn't look very off-road capable to me.

It is more of a rally car made to handle roads of all kinds not a 4x4 hill climber or rock crawler.
