2012 Mini Cooper $12,995
This 2012 Mini Cooper Countryman Cooper S is one of the most interesting future classics around. After all, it has the size and versatility of a modern crossover. But they also made sure to give it the retro-good looks of the Mini. And with a peppy turbo motor and such nimble steering, it needs no labels to define what is a blast to drive.
The factory Light Coffee is distinct and attractive, and we could describe the Countryman in the same way. It's a true crossover with taller lines and a beefier face than its other Cooper siblings. But the same principles of usefulness that's a Mini cornerstone still apply. So you have svelte dimensions, but with four full doors and a large rear hatch. And there's plenty of sporty style with bright dual exhaust tips, crystal clear headlights, fender vent trim, flared fenders, and 17-inch alloys. It all looks quite nice today, because while this is an actual mileage odometer, you can see they've been done with care and maturity. And this one really was ordered carefully with plenty of distinction. For example, the white roof is a great Mini piece, and the coordinating mirror caps and racing stripes on the hood make for a distinct two-tone style. So you may just give this one a nickname like coffee and cream.
The black leather seats look fantastic, which is another sign that this car comes from a good and caring home. You slip behind a grippy three-spoke factory wheel, and ahead of you is a large tach. In the center is the large speedometer reminiscent of the original Austin Mini. Below that, your control for the AM/FM/CD stereo, air conditioning, power windows, power locks, heated seats, and other luxuries are on cool toggle switches. And this is a true modern classic with desirable features like Bluetooth and voice recognition. You even get the safety convenience of front airbags, side airbags, and ABS. This is truly a thoughtful mix of retro touches with modern luxury. The taller size of the Countryman really works in its favor when it comes to passengers and cargo. The rear gets dual bucket seats and a sliding cup holder system. And the extra headroom makes it quite comfortable. Plus, since the seat doesn't need to do a big recline, you can also get more road trip-sized luggage in the trunk.
The 1.6-liter motor is a great powerplant to have. It's a lively unit that has fuel injection, dual-overhead camshafts, and variable valve timing. And the turbocharger of the S modern really means you have a modern motor with a peppy attitude. Also, what makes these Minis so much fun is the suspension. Mini's BMW parents made sure it was given a fully independent setup that lived up to the sporting heritage that made original Mini Cooper giant killers on the racetrack and rally circuit. That's the key to a car like this. It's a secret sports car that's ready to charge forward at a moment's notice, but the four-wheel disc brakes, six-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and cruise control also make it easy to live with every day.
Complete with owner's manual, this is your secret sports car that's been nicely cared for and presented in a terrific color combo. No matter if you're looking for an affordable future classic or something cool to keep the miles off of your vintage ride, this irresistible price means you need to hurry up and grab this deal.
