never been a better time to discover the comfort and class of a Mini Cooper. Ask
these questions when buying a new 2016 Mini Cooper to find out which model is
right for you.
If you plan on having more than one adult passenger in your car, you should get the 4 Door. While the 2 Door has a rear seat, the leg room is very limited and adults might not feel comfortable back there for very long.
Are there special edition models available?
The Mini Cooper Roadster John Cooper Works is the finest, most loaded model in the Mini Cooper line. This model is sportier and fancier with a matching price tag - it will run around $36-40 thousand.
Which Mini Cooper has the best mpg rating?
The Cooper S has the best mpg rating at 26/33 city/highway mpg. For a larger car, that fuel efficiency is impressive.
Why should I buy a 2016 Mini Cooper new instead of used?
A new Mini Cooper comes with no cost maintenance that you might not be offered at used car dealerships. Buying new will allow you to work directly with the manufacturer if you have any issues instead of with any middle man.
How many people will fit in the rear seat of my 2016 Mini Cooper?
In the Mini Cooper 2 Door, three children will fit in the rear seat. However, in the 4 Door version, three adults will fit in the rear seat. Always ask to sit in the back of a Mini yourself so you can feel what the space is like.
How much should I expect to pay for a new Mini Cooper?
For the base model, you can expect to spend around $20,000. For the Cooper S, that goes up to around $24,000 or more depending on optional features.
Is there a convertible option available?
All 2 door models come in a convertible option, but be prepared to pay a little more if you want a car that lets the top down. Unfortunately there is not a 4 door convertible option for the 2016 Mini Cooper.
How long does the warranty last?
Most new Mini Coopers come with 3 year/36,000 mile warranties. However, Mini Cooper dealerships offer third-party warranties for additional coverage, just like other dealerships do. Always ask about your options so you can get the coverage you want.
