It loses little cargo space to the gas Soul, but will be priced about $8,000 more.

The latest Mini Cooper hardtop , for example, is about as well-suited to carrying adult passengers in the back as a Little Tikes Cozy Coupe-and that thing doesn't even have back seats.

The New MINI 5 Can Fit All The Clowns But Isn't Nearly As Amusing

The new model range extension from the MINI is big. Really big. Huge. If the new 5 ended up at a circus, there'd be no point in using it as a clown car, it wouldn't be funny.
