I've always wanted to own a Mini Cooper, but now I have a 7-month-old in a rear-facing infant car seat. Can our 2014 Mini Cooper still work for us?

    7 months? How did I miss you having a baby, or have you not shared that with us before? Congratulations to you and your husband. Now, back to the topic at hand, this just demonstrates why BMW chose to make the Mini less, well, mini. Not everyone wants a 4 door or Clubman, and this makes the Mini far more practical for a young family like yours while still keeping the car small by modern standards.

    I like this car, but I've been in and have witnessed enough rear end collisions that I will not drive a car where the rear seat passengers are essentially in the crumple zone. One accident in particular left the whole trunk of a Hyundai Sonata completely flat against the passenger compartment. I know that the trunk area is different, but I couldn't help but think of what it would have looked like in a vehicle with little to no trunk.
