We are fans of Winding Road around here as has been mentioned before. Issue 41 is a good reason why. Chock full of clever Top 12 or Top 5 lists, including their favorite cars from 2008.

Sure the MINI made the list.
>The Mini Cooper line has been a favorite with the automotive media since its introduction in 2002. The latest iteration sallies forth as a wonderful mix of performance and fuel efficiency, particularly the S variant with its 172 horsepower four-banger that achieves 26 miles per gallon in the city and 34 on the highway.

Other cars in the list include the BMW 1 Series, the Mitsubishi Lancer Evo, The Audi R8 and Dodge Sprinter. Yes, _that_ Dodge Sprinter.

The MINI is also featured in their Top 10 most fuel effecient cars, coming in at number 9.

Winding Road is a *free* online car magazine. You can read it on the website or download it to your computer to read any time. Well written, great photos and easy to use. It’s no wonder it always makes the Motoringfile Gift Guide. Well worth checking out and subscribing.
