MINI ‘Supermini of the Year’
Business Car Magazine has named the BMW MINI ‘Supermini of the Year’ for the eleventh year running. Business Car Editor Paul Barker said “MINI’s combination of brand prestige and fun-to-drive character with efficiency and residual values that lead to unbeatable running costs mean it’s no surprise that the car has now held onto Business Car’s Supermini of the Year award for an 11th year. It’s a huge achievement, and illustrates the massive appeal in the corporate sector for a car with the qualities that the business car market relies on.”
Business car owners need efficiency especially city owners and the MINI have a wide range of models to choose from. Minimalism technologies are fitted as standard on the MINI Cooper, Cooper D, Cooper S, Cooper SD and John Cooper Works models which include Brake Energy Regeneration, Auto Start-Stop, Gearshift Indicator and Electromechanical Power Steering, all these technologies help to reduce emissions and is extremely fuel saving. The MINI Cooper D has co2 emissions starting from only 99g/km. The MINI Cooper D is without question the most fun way to go green but keep cash in your pocket! The nippy car returns an impressive 74.3mpg and can accelerate from 0-60mph in just 9.9 seconds and goes on to a top speed of 121mph which is 1mph more than the 1.6 petrol model and it is exempt from the London Congestion Charge.
Whichever version you go for, the MINI is a fabulous car to drive. It's great fun on twisty roads thanks to the go-kart handling and great steering. It's also easy to drive around town, and although there's a firm edge to the ride, it's never choppy or uncomfortable. The MINI has a five-star Euro NCAP crash-test rating and all models have front, side and cabin-length head airbags. You also get ISOFIX child seat mountings, and importantly, stability control is standard throughout the range.
The Entry model MINI First now starts at £11,870 and you will do well to find a brand which has pretty much cornered the market with an approach of we have ' something for everyone ' in terms of models and variations. Finance deals are also so competitive that consumers who thought a MINI was out of their price range can now buy a MINI from as little as £159 per month, but it is not just about new cars either and with the MINI brand now coming into its 12th year used MINI's can be found for as little as around £2000.
