Not a big fan of any of these cars. While the Smart car has its own plus points,I don't fancy it 1 bit. Same with the Cooper or the Fiat.

The Mini looked OK when it was launched. Now I feel, all of the above cars and the Beetle for that matter, suck big time.
Which way is the bus stop?

Voted for none! All three look kinda- ordinary to be called 'fashionable' city cars!

Smart looks modern, 500 seems better package- But, nothing too exciting. But thats just my opinion!

I would have said Mini earlier but I hate that its been made into a Clubman and an SUV. Otherwise the Mini is great! But i'd go for the retro looking 500.

Default MINI in India

There have been news reports off-and-on about the launch of MINI in India. Does anyone have a confirmed news on the launch dates, expected prices and the models likely to be launched here.

Mini for me,one of my favourite.
But if that lady is included with 500 then I will change my mind.
