Not conducive to many car seats. Do your research and buy the right seat.
Good handling. 6 speed manual gives me great control. Last mini was in an accident and my family remained safe due to good design. Seats are adjustable and allow a lot of room despite compact appearance. Excellent gas mileage. Most expensive issues are xenon headlights (opt for regular to save a lot of $). Two flaws with this car are the mirror covers fall off when you open them (on the visor) and that the roof is more narrow than the width of the car a the base of the windows on the door, so when you roll down windows in the rain, the rain comes straight in the door. That is the most and only annoying problem I can find.
