2012 Mini Cooper

It’s time for fun in the sun with this two-time winner of the Vincentric Best Value in America award in the convertible segment. The Mini Cooper delivers with the best in class fuel economy and lowest operating costs, resulting in an overall ownership cost about 6% lower than expected. It was this type of performance that relegated last year’s winner, the Mazda Mx-5 Miata to second place.


Cost-of-Ownership Compared to Segment Averages

The Vincentric Best Value in America awards are based on the model level average of all trim levels within the model. Ownership costs for each trim level are measured at annual mileages of 10,000, 15,000, and 20,000.
