Why Choose MINI
 
When you think of MINI what comes to mind? Do you think of top-notch premium features? Maybe you think of sporty handling in a uniquely styled body. How about the thrill and power of a twinpower turbo engine paired with our world famous handling? Here we'll lay out why a MINI is the best premium choice for you and the most fun you can legally have on the motorway.

MINI produces some of the most structurally sound and rigid vehicles on the market. It's a simple test. Open and close the door of any car and you can usually get a good sense of how well built that car is. So don't be shy. We love it when people slam our doors. Because the moment someone experiences a MINI's solid feel and precision, they begin to understand our premium difference. Include the fact that we cover all standard maintenance for 3-years or 36,000 miles and it's no wonder so many new MINI Owners are thrilled with their purchase. Or that MINI models are among the best in the industry at retaining their value over the long haul. MINI models make affording luxury simple. The classic MINI Hardtop 2-Door starts in at just $20,950 and the all new MINI Countryman begins at only $26,100. Check out our selection of MINI Inventory here

The real key to driver safety? Avoiding accidents altogether. That's why a MINI's world-famous handling and numerous Active Safety features help you steer clear of hazards. And in the rare chance an accident is unavoidable? Your MINI's predictive brakes, protective frame, airbag system and more are already prepared.

MINI models come with Up to 8 front, side-impact, ceiling-mounted, side-curtain and knee airbags monitor collision severity to adjust inflation rates and help protect you and your passengers with as much force as needed. In extreme cases, they'll stay inflated longer to keep you safe from shattered glass.

We also produce an extremely strong frame made from second-generation multiphase steel reduces body torque, freeing the suspension to do what it does best - provide super-tight handling. A flex-free frame also reduces squeaks, rattles, vibrations and cabin noise.

The MINI 2 Door Hardtop and Countryman have both previously been named IIHS Top Safety Picks! Every time you turn on your MINI you can feel confident that you and your passengers are safe and secure.

 

Today's MINI may look a bit different from it's ancestors, but we hold true to our core values and beliefs about what truly makes MINI a great premium brand. Over 50 years of motoring have added up to hundreds of innovations and checkered flags, millions of models on the road, legions of devoted fans and one International Car of the Century award.

The year was 1957, and in post-World War II England the Suez Crisis had sent fuel prices soaring, leading many to start wondering if the large, gas-guzzling vehicles of the day made much sense.

So Sir Leonard Lord of the Morris Company issued his top engineer, Alec Issigonis, a challenge: design and build a small, fuel-efficient car capable of carrying four adults, within economic reach of just about everyone. As fate would have it, the challenge of fitting so much function into such a small package inspired a couple of historic innovations.

To this day MINI continues to strive to meet the same challenges. We've created a lineup of economically excellent vehicles that rule the motorways with legendary spunk, superior handling and incredible reliability.


 
MINI has always been know for being one of the most fun brands to drive and we take great pride in that. That fun all starts with a spunky twinpower turbo engine and exceptional sport handling. MINI's are made ready for any occasion from the highway to the back straightaway.  With super-wide stances, ultra-rigid bodies and incredibly precise handling, MINI have always felt right at home on the track. In fact, the whole reason MINI models tend to have contrasting roofs is that back in the 60's it helped them stand out from the pack during races (of course, being out in front usually helped too). Today, our passion for racing lives on, whether it's supporting amateur owners ready for a bit of out-of-the-ordinary weekend fun or developing world-class racing programs to lead the charge in some of the sport's most grueling challenges.

Our cars are well known for excellent engines and sport handling but now-a-days MINI is leading the charge for the most fun you can have on a tank of gas. MINI models excel at getting the most MPG for your hard earned dollar! With MINI you could enjoy the best of both worlds - Outstanding power and handling hand in hand with up to 38 MPG*.

Almost without fail, people unfamiliar with us are shocked at how spacious the inside of a MINI really is. But we've been performing this magic trick for over 50 years. Because innovations we introduced in 1959 for the Classic Mini, such as turning the engine sideways and our famous wheels-at-the-corners layout, were actually invented for the sole purpose of creating as much passenger room as possible.

Of course, another way to create more space is to ignore the naysayers and grammar police and simply build a bigger MINI. Or two. Which is exactly what we did with the MINI Countryman and the MINI Clubman.

One of our most spacious models, the MINI Clubman boasts a staggering 47.9 cubic feet of boot space with the rear seats folded down. And even our smaller models have adjustable seats and floor panels to accommodate the entire family's luggage.
