Regardless of if you’re in the market for a brand new car, or buying one from the pre-owned lot, as a dollar-wise consumer you’ll want to purchase a model that holds its value. When it comes to purchasing pre-owned there is no better choice than used MINI Coopers.

Found on the latest list of “Residual Value Champions” published by Focus magazine, the MINI One, MINI Cooper Coupé and MINI Cooper S Countryman ALL4 are the trifecta of used MINI Coopers and ranked as the highest value retention models available on the German car market. MSN Auto also named the pre-owned MINI Cooper as number one model in value retention, with a three-year value retention rate of 67%.

What makes a pre-owned MINI Cooper retain value? Some say it is their pleasurable driving style, premium quality, efficiency and distinctive design. Others think it is the slow depreciation rates that make used MINI Coopers such an astounding buy.

As with any commodity, supply and demand for used MINI Coopers play a factor in determining their value. Speaking to that fact Eric Ibara, director of market valuation for Kelley Blue Book, reports, “Cars with a current, bold look, such as the MINI Cooper, are in demand and thus worth more.”

“It is not surprising to see pre-owned MINI Coopers stealing the show in used car ratings,” says Peter Maldonado, VP of Sales for Crevier MINI. “MINI Coopers are built for the driver, with attention to detail and a finesse that could steal any auto lover’s heart. At Crevier MINI our customers purchasing used MINI Cooper leave just as excited as those that buy new.”

The next time you’re in the market for a car, remember the value retention of pre-owned MINI Coopers. When it comes to automobiles, a used MINI Cooper just may be the smartest buy you can make.
