2012 MINI Cooper Receives IntelliChoice SmartChoice Retained Value Award

Los Angeles and Orange County area MINI Cooper dealer Crevier MINI asks, in purchasing a vehicle – why sacrifice style for price when you can have it all with a MINI Cooper?

Experienced car buyers seek a vehicle with good total cost of ownership (TCO) stats. The total cost of ownership factors in additional costs that may have not been considered upfront. Additional costs on a MINI Cooper may include: depreciation, interest on a loan, taxes and fees, insurance premiums and fuel costs, as well as maintenance and repairs.

When it comes to buying a MINI Cooper with low TCO, IntelliChoice.com recommends the 2012 MINI Cooper Hatchback Sporty/Coupe. The independent automobile information site awarded this model with a coveted SmartChoice Retained Value award.

MINI Cooper is no stranger to value-based awards. In 2009, Yahoo named the Cooper and Cooper S one of five small cars to buy and again in 2010 listed the MINI Cooper Clubman one of five cars that have great resale value.

“We are proud of all the MINI Cooper models in production,” says Peter Maldonado, the General Manager at Crevier’s Los Angeles and Orange County MINI dealer. “When a particular brand takes home value awards year after year on a wide range of models, you know it is a name you can stand behind.”

When compared to like vehicles, the 2012 MINI Cooper 2-door Hatchback in both Sporty and Coupe trims takes the cake. The MINI Cooper’s five year total cost of ownership comes in nearly $4,000 lower than that of other makes. According to IntelliChoice, those who purchase a 2012 2-door Hatchback from the Santa Ana and Los Angeles area dealer can expect to invest only $27,218 over five years. This is why the site has given the 2012 MINI Cooper Hatchback a value rating of Excellent.
