MINI John Cooper Works 50/50 Finance

The MINI John Cooper Works Hatchback – fancy owning fifty per-cent of it?

The MINI John Cooper Works Hatchback – fancy owning fifty per-cent of it? If so, check- out the manufacturer's fifty/fifty finance package. Here, motorists pay fifty per-cent of the vehicle's value, then nothing further for twenty-four months. This equates to around £11,200, based on the Hatchback's list price. At the end of the contract either pay the remaining fifty per-cent to own the vehicle outright, part exchange it for a new MINI, or return it. Under these circumstances, there should be nothing further to pay subject to vehicle mileage and condition. And yes, you must return the entire MINI; not just “half” of it.

The MINI John Cooper Works Hatchback is one of the most entertaining in the range, even if you only own fifty per-cent of it. As such, the 1.6-litre petrol engine produces 211PS and 192lb ft of torque. That is enough to propel this game of two halves to 62mph in 6.5 seconds, and on to 148mph. It also has super-sharp handing, a firm but comfortable ride, fantastic build quality, and plenty of gadgets. As such, motorists might be forgiven for thinking it has: “half” an alarm, two alloy wheels, one front electric window, one electric mirror, and MP3 connectivity. Will it only play “half” your songs, then? The only other niggle is that this six-speed manually geared fashion statement has a small boot. 160- litres, in fact, compared to the Ford Ka's 223-litres. Oh, of course – the MINI must have half a boot.
