the 2.4 liter (AUTOMATIC!!) camry's gas mileage is 24/34. the mini cooper s (MANUAL!!) is 25/32. but i doubt you can get that much out of the mini when you drive it like it was meant to be. It is very much possible to get under 15 when you have fun. the camry is 500 pounds heavier and has drum brakes in the back. the camry goes from 0-60 in 11.8, the mini in 6.8. end of story.
I like this. A challenge. No worries, keep it coming.
Listen here YOU.
1) Lasts longer
2) Has more space
3) Has better looks
4) Is cheaper
You can't tell me there is a difference in gas mileage, that doesn't fly. Yes my Camry is bigger, heavier, and has a smaller engine so therefore it WILL go slower. Tell me something I don't already know.
Annnnnd, this is the killer, my Camry is CHEAPER too. So I bet you there will be 5X as many Camrys rolling around as there are Minis. Got you beat. Put your tail between your legs and go back to the dog house until you got something intelligent to say.
And let's get your facts straight.
I have a 2.2-liter four-cylinder with 133 horses. The OTHER engine size is 3.0-liter V6 for an additional $2,300. V6 model goes zero to 60 in 8.7 seconds, as opposed to 10.9 seconds for my four-cylinder. But, IF my CE was fitted with a V6 and a manual transmission it would be the fastest of them all (1997 Camry's) with a 0-to-60 time of 7.6 seconds.
Anywho, just wanted to make sure you knew which car we were talking about...

I know, it's cool. But still he doesn't know what he's up against. I'm into cars. I drive EVERYTHING. I KNOW cars. He can try all he wants.
Just know in the end we're all on the same side.
