2007 Mini Cooper S

2007 Mini Cooper S

Although externally very similar to its previous incarnation, the new, larger 2007 Mini Cooper S ($TBA; late 2006) replaces nearly every internal piece, and all the body panels are new to this redesign. The S features a 175 hp turbocharged engine that comes coupled with a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters, an air intake on the hood, MINI's classic toggle-switch interior, and standard run-flat tires. With all this and more added on to what was already a solid package, we're left wishing we had waited to pick up our new rides until we test drove this.

  • Volvo C70

    For those that live in a climate that has even relatively cold winters, regular convertibles are pretty much a half-year vehicle. This car may change all of that. The new Volvo C70 ($TBA; available Spring ‘06) was designed to replace 2 cars — the old C70 coupe and convertible. The new C70 features a three-piece hard top, a 2.5L supercharged inline-five that produces 218 hp, and legendary Volvo safety. Finally, a convertible that looks just as good as a coupe. [Thanks, John]
