Leasing a Mini for under £225 per month
The Mini Hatchback Cooper Classic II is now in its third generation under the ownership of BMW, and the modern day version is just as iconic as any of its predecessors.
As the size slightly increases with the release of each new model, these classic cars keep getting better. Unfortunately, the full retail price is also growing along with it, which is now over £18,000. But for less than £225 a month, you can hire the Cooper Classic II with Leasing Options, which is a far more cost-effective option.
As always, the Cooper Classic II remains a joy to drive and comes complete with everything you’d expect, along with one or two surprises. The 1.499 litre three-cylinder petrol engine runs smoothly and works in tandem with a 6-speed manual transmission gearbox.
Looking at the Mini's eco-friendly credentials, you'll find a relatively low 122g/km and top speed of 130mph. When it comes to fuel efficiency, it gets through just over 52 miles per gallon from a tank that can hold up to 40 litres. Standard equipment includes the Mini E-Call (which connects you to the BMW Group call centre in an emergency), interior lighting, heat protection glass and Union Jack design rear lights.
As part of the safety features you also get 6 airbags, hill start assist, keyless entry and tyre pressure monitoring. There are always plenty of extras available to add to your Mini experience and that includes options such as cruise control, leather upholstery, adaptive LED headlights and adaptive suspension.
Leasing a Mini for under £250 per month
The Mini Convertible Cooper Sport II is another from the range which has undergone a facelift and has received praise from almost every sector of the automobile industry. To buy one outright would set you back over £23,000, but with a Leasing Options package you’d pay under £250 every month.
With BMW’s usual style and class added to the interior, there isn’t much competition for this compact convertible. Like the Cooper Classic II it features a 1.499, three-cylinder petrol engine and also comes with a 6-speed manual transmission gearbox. The engine is generally viewed by industry insiders as being one of the best in its class due to its smooth, effortless ride.
In addition, it has a top speed limit of 128mph, plus CO2 emissions stand at 130g/km. The car can also get through just under 50 miles to the gallon, while the fuel tank holds a respectable 40 litres.
Looking at the standard equipment in more detail, Mini throw in a 6.5” touchscreen, Mini TeleServices, a DAB digital radio and high precision injection. Safety features aren’t lacking either, featuring an alarm with tilt sensor, steering assistance, rear park control and a fanfare horn so you are heard loud and clear.
To go the extra mile with optional add ons, you can take your pick from Mini driving modes, Mini Yours Special solid paint, a Harman Kardon Hi-Fi and a Union Jack soft top.
Leasing a Mini for under £300 per month
It is often said that the Mini Countryman Hatchback Cooper S Sport is too super-sized to be a Mini, but it has become a great option for families who want the recognisable look of the classic brand, along with plenty of room and practicality inside.
Coming in at over £27,000 when purchased outright, it’s an expensive choice for many. But the beauty of leasing a car with us means you get to drive the Countryman for less than £300 a month.
Now in its second generation under BMW, the Countryman remains suited for those living outside of the city, as it really finds its feet on tougher terrain. Engine-wise, you get a 1.998 litre, four-cylinder petrol-fuelled system and more seats than you’d normally expect from a Mini.
Top speed limits can reach up to 140mph, and the environmentally conscious will want to know that CO2 emissions peak at 149g/km. The car also comes with large, 18” alloy wheels, a 6-speed manual transmission gearbox, plus it offers 43.5 miles to the gallon from a fuel tank that can hold up to 51 litres.
The list of standard equipment is as impressive as you’d expect, with a double Vanos system, instrument cluster, performance control transmission and Mini E-Call all included. Plus, when it comes to safety features, you’ll find their Active Guard, auto-drive away locking, 3 point seatbelts and an electronic immobiliser as standard.
To take the Countryman to the next level, you can choose between extras such as a head-up display, a glass sunroof, a comfort access system and memory function electronic seats.
Why should you lease a Mini?
Since launching in 1959, the Mini has been ingrained in British popular culture and is one of the most iconic cars on the road. They are fun to drive, pleasing on the eye, reliable and affordable – ticking all the right boxes for motorists today.
Where other cars rely on their badge, the shape and style of a Mini is so unique it’s instantly recognisable by everyone around the world, remaining just as popular today as it was in the ’60s. Now under the ownership of BMW, the Mini has become rejuvenated into a stylish car that perfectly suits the modern lifestyle.
Buying a car is one of the biggest investments of your life and it’s a commitment that can make a significant dent in your bank account. Leasing offers a perfect alternative that enables you to drive a brand-new car for a low price, without compromising on the type of vehicle you’d like to see sitting out on your driveway.
If you purchase a car outright, you may own a brand-new vehicle, but its value will soon start depreciating, so it can be hard to sell it for a good price in the future. When you lease with us, you’ll only pay for the time you’ll drive the car, rather than the full manufacturer’s price. Once the contract is finished, you hand back the keys, and there’s no need to think about reselling the vehicle.
