Natron 5pts Ya know, this is classic response of the auto "news" agency. This car according to European reports gets over 50mpg in certain configurations. I think this would lend it to more than just a "niche" hauler for "boutique" companies. NO, its not a rally racer or Mommy 350hp SUV. But many small companies want space and MPG right now (at near 4$ a gallon!!). Something that magazines (and I've been reading 'Motor Trend' and 'Car and Driver' for over 20 years) fail to realize. MINI at the least, is a company that tries to make a boring segment of the market fun. Try to report objectively to the intended function: It would set yet another car website, apart.
