Perhaps you’re in the market for a MINI Cooper after driving your friend’s. Maybe you’ve seen The Italian Job too many times (although is that really possible?). Whatever has brought you to MINI Edmonton, we are glad you’re here. But what’s next? Why don’t we start by talking about how much your MINI Cooper will cost.
Why a MINI?
The main driving force behind a MINI, besides a scrappy Twin Power Turbo engine, is the idea that driving should be fun. If you’re into that sort of thing, the MINI is just what you need. But what kind of fun are you looking for? Is it just you and your partner in crime? Then the original MINI 3 Door is probably just what you need. Maybe you’ve got a few more along for the ride, in which case the MINI 5 Door is going to be your ticket. The more free-spirited out there may prefer to let their hair down a bit more with the MINI Convertible. There’s also the MINI Clubman, which is supremely practical and offers a touch of luxury for your everyday driving needs. Finally, the MINI Countryman is built for exploration; with the most interior space of any MINI ever, as well as being MINI’s first ever electric-hybrid.
So again, you’re wondering, what is all that fun going to cost you? And we aren’t avoiding the answer by saying it depends. Each version of the MINI Cooper is jam-packed with features — you’d be hard pressed to find another automaker that squeezes so much into such a small package. As far as value is concerned, the MINI Cooper is second to none. Our affiliation with BMW grants us access to the finest performance parts and luxury materials available, meaning that your MINI will always be decked out. But that doesn’t mean there isn’t room for enhancements; for example, upgrade your 5 Door to the Clubman or Countryman models to take advantage of MINI’s incredible handling ALL4 All-Wheel Drive System. Or, you could drive your MINI Convertible year-round, with a few upgrades to make it winter worthy. And if going fast is a where you get your kicks, you can never go wrong with a John Cooper Works model.
But Is It Worth It?
The MINI Cooper, beyond being an IIHS Top Safety Pick, is the ALG Residual Value Awards winner in the Premium Compact Class. That means your MINI will retain its resale value over the long term better than any other vehicle in its class. That, combined with MINI’s standard No-Charge Scheduled Maintenance means some of your basic services like oil and filter changes, inspections, and more, cost you a whopping zero dollars and zero cents. Also standard is MINI’s Roadside Assistance program, a four year, unlimited kilometer coverage program that is there for you, in Canada or the continental United States, if you are broken down, stuck, or have been in an accident (but maybe save The Italian Job style stunts for the professionals).
So when you factor in all of the aforementioned perks, owning a MINI sort of seems priceless, doesn’t it? But since we have to charge you something, we may as well give you some exact figures so you can start thinking about which model is right for you. The original MINI 3 Door is priced from $22,190*. The MINI 5 Door, with room for extra adventure, is priced from $23,490*. The MINI Convertible, for all you free spirits out there, is priced from $28,790*. The MINI Clubman, with all of its extra space and luxury touches, is priced from $27,790*. And finally, the MINI Countryman, ready for whatever the road (or off-road) throws your way, is priced from $29,290*. But of course, we’d rather you come down and visit us at MINI Edmonton and see what an exceptional value these MINIs are for yourself.
*”Priced from” means the numbers here are based off of the MSRP set by MINI Canada. The price at every MINI Cooper dealership may fluctuate depending on a number of factors, such as which models are available. You should always visit the dealership and find out the actual price of a specific unit, with all factors calculated.
