I disagree with the mini - have you ever driven one? Those little cars have some serious cajones! I use to valet cars a side job when I was stationed in California, and I used to love getting to park those things!
I'm sorry to say that I don't think the Liberty will ever lose its female vibe. You can lift it, put lightbars on it, make it into a monster-truck, and girls are still going to say "awww that's so cute! I want that Jeep!" when they walk on the lot.
However, I kind of agree with above - I moreso consider practicality before what other people think. I do draw the line somewhere, though - the Smart Car is definitely way across that line! But for example, we're probably going to buy a new Prius in 2012, so I can't talk too much...
I've got 2 kids - that's a good excuse, right?!
