Yes! I owned a Yugo in college, for commutes, and it was really... awful. While it was very light (but flimsy) and it had great fuel economy, its weak 1.1L engine (that made 45hp) ruined any notion of fun. The (original) Mini is the platform if you want something tiny that's a lot of fun, our little turbo Austin Cooper makes about 280hp and it's just stupidly fun to drive.
