LeftLane Picks Ten Fun Fuel Efficient Cars

One of LeftLane's choices is the MINI John Cooper Works about which it says:
MINI John Cooper Works (manual) 25/33 mpg. You can have lots of fun with a standard MINI Cooper, but we like it a lot more when there are additional words tacked onto its name! The John Cooper Works package isn't cheap, but it brings with it a finely tuned suspension, Brembo brakes and a 208-pony turbocharged 1.6-liter engine. It is possibly the most complete and entertaining small car ever built and we love that it pays homage to a motorsports legend.

Best for: When you’ve outgrown the Mazda2. Sure, you can buy two Mazdas for this price… but the JCW feels worth every penny!
