"Giving up" 0.9L and 2 cylinders, but gaining much more in return (well, OK, I'm losing a lot of trunk space but who cares . . .) Mazda MX-6 LS: 2.5-liter V-6, 160-hp at 5500 rpm, 156 lb-ft torque at 5000 rpm. It's amazing how close the horsepower and torque ratings are for both cars. Given its lighter weight, the MINI feels much quicker. For it's size, though, the MINI's heavier than expected. The Mazda, on the other hand, weighs a surprising 2700 pounds . . .

I am giving up my 95 GMC Yukon 2door 4x4 with a 5.7L V8 for a Chili red/white S with premium/sport and leather. The savings in gas alone should almost pay for insurance! As for the fun factor well I think it’s going to be at least an even trade. My view whilst driving is definitely about to change.
