Smile Mini Newbie with a few questions

Hello everyone , I'm new to your forums and i have some quick questions so bare with me here Before asking , yes I did some searching but I feel my questions yielded me to go ahead and register here because I didn't get all my answers in my search , I'll try to make this as neat and easy as possible

My fiance ispregnant and we have a child on theway My problem is I currently drive a Chrysler crossfire , which is a two seat coupe Meaning no room for the future baby. So I'm looking at a new car , I've already done searching on other 4 seated cars that I enjoy Those being : Mercedes-Benz c230k sport ,Audi a4/s4 b6 generation, Mazda rx8 and now I'm here asking you guys about the mini One thing I miss is boost (before the Chrysler I had a 2003 vw gti) and i know the mini has it so here are my questions

1. How much space in the rear ? Good enough for a growing baby?(I do plan on owning the car for several years) 2. How is the average fuel Eco on 89+ fuel ?3. How pricey is your insurance?4. I'm stillsomewhat young and want a relatively quick car , so how many mods out there Are there for the mini?5. What's the difference between an r56 and r53 ?6. Which is proven more or less reliable the turbo models or supercharged models And which of those is quickest with or without the average bolt on mods?

Thank you guys in advance for your responses I have about 7months before I'm a dad And the next car I purchase will be a big decision for me Thank you again

MINI 2 cant be responsible for your fiance being pregnant, sorry.
A normal MINI isnt much good if youre trying to transport babies and their equipment about as its only a 2 door and the boot isnt really big enough for all their junk, prams etc,
If you want a MINI best go for a new Countryman I would think??
A new Range Rover would be ideal, your fiance will love you more for buying that too as its got more room, better visibility and better in an accident.

Range rovers are nice but It's a gas guzzler, and the price of it is more than I think I can afford , haven't looked into it
I do like the countryman but boot space isn't a big deal , just needed back seats large enough for a baby seat
And i also am happy about the pregnancy , just needed to know a few things about the car as i don't know much about the mini
Thanks for your response Nun , hopefully i can get a few others to chime in aswell
