Much like any model under BMW’s other vehicle lines, the MINI has an unmistakeable look, feel, and philosophy. Now that Motorwerkes offers comprehensive service for MINIs, we feel it’s right to take a look at what makes them a distinctive and appropriate choice for so many drivers.
Economy and Efficiency
One thing that the MINI is best known for is its excellent economy. This is made possible through both smart engineering and its compact size. The 1.5L base engine of a 2016 2-door Mini Cooper hardtop, for instance, boasts an EPA MPG of around 32 combined city/highway, and some models and configurations can get you upwards of 40. They’re not just economical in terms of fuel consumption, they’re also pretty efficient investments, as they can give you a lot for your money when they’re well-maintained by the right technicians and with certified parts. On the whole, they’re relatively affordable purchases and tend to maintain impressive resale value.
Power, Performance, and Control
Naturally, when you combine a powerful engineering approach with a compact size and low curb weight, you’re going to benefit from excellent speed, handling, and more. MINIs are widely known for their impeccable, go-kart-like steering and brisk acceleration. A 2015 John Cooper Works Mini with a 228 horsepower 4-cylinder 2.0L turbocharged engine can get you from 0 to 60 in 6.1 seconds. Even the more affordable 2016 Mini Cooper S Clubman can reach 60 in 6.6 seconds, despite offering some extra cargo space for those who find other MINIs a bit too tight. Both these and other recent models boast control and stability that more than lives up to the MINI name.
A Personalized Drive
On top of efficiency and performance at a good price, many drivers love MINI for the diverse range of configurations and customizations available. There’s an offering for every personality, and this kind of flexibility is something that is becoming more and more desirable to today’s modern driver. With the right certified factory and aftermarket parts, you can enhance and fine-tune your MINI in a number of ways. Best of all, they benefit from highly personal, dedicated service by certified BMW technicians!
