2009 MINI Cooper

 Although there were many strong competitors in this smallest vehicle segment, the Mini Cooper returned to the Vincentric winner’s circle in 2009. Although 2nd place Honda Fit and 3rd place Toyota Yaris were tough competition, the cost of ownership for the Mini Cooper was over 7% lower than expected, resulting in Vincentric’s Best Value in America award …..a nice complement to the previous 2005 award.
