When shopping for new cars at MINI dealerships, Canadian customers will be impressed by a large selection of economical, affordable and stylish models. Priced at slightly more than $20,000, the 3 Door and 5 Door trims are loaded with entry-level amenities. For more than $25,000, shoppers can purchase the Clubman or Countryman, which have plenty of premium features that appeal to families. Priced at just under $30,000, the MINI Convertible is a sleek and sporty car that’s ideal for cruising through beautiful settings.
More than 10 attractive paint options are available for most of the MINI Cooper models. Chili Red and Volcanic Orange are awesome colors that blend in well with natural landscapes. British Racing Green and Deep Blue Metallic are some other paint options that are inspired by nature. Pure Burgundy and Midnight Black are sophisticated choices for drivers who’d like to mostly cruise through urban settings. Lapilixury and Pepper White add a luxurious touch to any MINI car. All of these great colors are paired with 17-inch or 18-inch alloy wheels that are available with multi-spoke designs. Of course, Bonnet stripes also add some awesome appeal to the hood and roof. Custom decals, such as the Black Jack British flag, can also be installed on top of the roof.
When it comes to interior design, MINI vehicles can be furnished with premium cloth in black or other dark finishes. Leather upholstery is available in burgundy, black and other rich textures. The oval instrument gauges, central console and climate control dials add some contemporary flair to the sporty cockpit. The ring-like central console has a soft glow of ambient lighting that comes on when the 8.8-inch infotainment system is turned on.
Having only three cylinders, the 1.5 L TwinPower engine is one of the smallest engines on the auto market. For its compact size, it produces an impressive output thanks to a single turbocharger. For more powerful performance, the 2.0 L TwinPower engine should be selected. This four-cylinder engine is available with a single turbocharger or a twin-scroll turbocharger. Combustion is smoothly initiated and managed by the Variable Valve Timing technology. Additionally, the Valvetronic function precisely controls the flow of air into each cylinder during the intake cycle. When the Green Mode is turned on, the MINI Cooper will achieve optimum fuel economy on the highway and in the city. This mode adjusts the throttle, transmission and other mechanical parameters according to road conditions.
MINI Cooper models at Canadian car dealerships are available with several types of transmission systems. A six-speed manual transmission appeals to drivers who prefer to set their own gear shift points. An eight-speed automatic transmission system provides some leverage for smooth shifting on any road.
