Third car is a small car

“From a dollars-and-cents point of view, it doesn’t make sense,”
said Jesse Toprak, director of industry analysis for Edmunds.com,
a Web site that offers car-buying advice. “There’s no way you’re
going to drive it enough to justify the purchase, so it’s more of a
psychological decision.”

That is particularly true for premium models, like the Mini Cooper,
as well as cars in Toyota’s Scion lineup. When decked out with
options like aluminum wheel covers and leather seats, their prices
can climb well above $20,000, the same as a family sedan or a
midsize S.U.V.
