I’ve been craving a new car for some time, waiting on the Nissan Cube to hit the states (2008) while hopping on the hybrid fuel Toyata Prius bandwagon, as everyone should, but the soon to be released Mini Clubman (stretched mini) has really caught my attention, being small, a bit boxy, and oddly cute like the other cars that I’ve pondered over such as the Scion Xb, Honda Element, and the o so small Smart Car. Of the bunch only the regular mini, xb, and Element are out. I think I can wait as the Mini Clubman (spring 2008) seriously rocks, but I’ve heard rumors that the Nissan Cube (late 2008) is suppose to be a hybrid, as it’s also a 4 door which I like… but the Clubman has this odd 3rd door on the passenger side, much like a secret VIP door to the back seat and some cool barn yard like back doors.
So what does it come down to for me and my next ride?…hmm, fuel economy, cool-oddness, space, fun, comfortable, and some sweet unusual extras.(yes, I know I’m kinda into this boxy pixel thing) Anyhoots, I thought I’d just share my thoughts with ya’ll, perhaps getting some input on what to do or any other thoughts on oddball sweet rides… ooo..Regular mini, Mini Clubman, xB, Cube3, Element, Smart, or I could always just settle with the square “Modular Car“!
I’m seriously diggin the Clubman… The mini was great, but a bit tiny for my taste, but now the stretched mini offers up this kinda odd VIP door and barn doors…lots more space, in a compact car …I like!
I’ve been waiting for the Cube to hit the states since 2002, and it’s finally being released in late 2008 in the States …there are some rumors that it’ll be a hybrid, but that is just speculation, though that would be a huge star for buying it. Very quirky..I love it!!!!!
I was craving the Cube since 2002 when it launched in japan, but the Element was the first somewhat boxy car to hit the states…has lots of cool odd features. I still like the Cube and Mini more, but it’s an option for a lower price.
I’m not sure if the Smart would do justice to my needs, but I dig the sweet mileage!
I somewhat liked the previous boxier model more..but i guess this ones a bit smoother, somewhat like the Cube. I’ve heard lots of great thigns about the previous Xb from friends, so…I’ll have to give this one a test run!
2009 Toyota Prius(100mpg!) Concept for now..booo…but it’s been delayed some…I like the whole cascading glass rooftop! I’ve been in a bunch of these…I love it for the tech and fuel economy, but the design i’ve never really dug…it’s okie, but something still yells ” I’m out of place”. This new design might be a bit more flattering if the glass on the roof don’t break all over the driver!
The Square Car, or the Modular car =) (haha..so cool!!)
If I’m broke, I’ll do this one…not sure what kind of mileage I would get, but it would be a graffiti haven.
Any thoughts, tips, experiences?!?!?! help!
