Minis are hilariously big now, as are most of the others

My mothers old Nissan Micra expired recently, so I was dragged to the dealers to provide advice. She was set on another Micra (would have been her fourth) until she saw the size of it.......

And the equivalent Peugeot, Ford, Renault, etc. So she went home with a Fiat 500, because it was small.

How you can have a Countryman Cooper is beyond me, and those damn things are as big as my Vauxhall Zafira (which has 7 seats!).

My mum had a 1974 Mini, I can vouch for their crash-worthiness having parked it on its roof on the approach to a roundabout and emerged unscathed. Dreadful brakes but much fun........
