Moms Just Want to Have Fun!

Are you dying to break free from the conventional ‘mom car’ mold? Then it’s time you were formally introduced to one of the most dynamic and stylish cars on the market: the 2020 Mini Cooper Clubman. Don’t be fooled by the “compact” designation—the Cooper Clubman is a daring combination of fleet-footedness, German-grade engineering, surprising utility, and British panache. If 5 full grown adults can fit in here, you can definitely fit all of your kids AND their sports gear, with room to make that last minute snack run to Target.

Better Than Your Kid’s Art Project

Your kids can build-a-bear however they want, why shouldn’t you be able to do the same with your car? With dozens of options making for hundreds of combinations, the Cooper Clubman isn’t just another beige-mobile rolling off the assembly line; it’s a work of art created by you, for you. From different steering wheels to mirror caps; contrasting exterior trim to interior ambient lighting, and more. The Cooper Clubman is ready to be the envy of the car line drop off.

A Laundry List of Upgrades

The Cooper Clubman’s exterior is treated to a host of upgrades over its siblings. The addition of LED headlights, an upright rear hatch, and all-new grille, add just the right touch of maturity. New colors available for 2020 include Indian Summer Red, British Racing Green, and MINI Yours Enigmatic Black. Couple any of these with the pristine piano black interior trim, and you’ll always feel classy—even on the way to a 5 year- old’s birthday party.

A Helping Hand

You’ve got your hands full as a mom. That’s why the Cooper Clubman includes keyless entry and a power tailgate. When it’s time to drown out the bickering and pleas for ice cream, blast your favorite song through the incredible 6.5-inch infotainment screen via Apple CarPlay, Satellite Radio, or your Bluetooth device. The optional Harmon Kardon sound system will be literal music to your ears—it’ll even make the 2,765,981st repeat of Baby Shark sound good.

Safety First!

Trips to school, sports practices, and your local bulk wine distributor are full of distractions. Fortunately, the Cooper Clubman is one of the highest-rated vehicles in NHTSA crash tests. With Active Driving Assistants including Forward Collision Warnings and Automatic Emergency Braking systems as well as airbags with adjustable inflation rates depending on the severity of an accident, you and your loved ones can remain safe on the road.

Purse Second!

Filling up your tank every week adds up quickly. Fortunately, the Cooper Clubman offers 26 MPG around town and 34 MPG on the highway! Wave goodbye to the gas station and say “Hello” to more retail therapy! With pricing starting at $30,900, the Cooper Clubman has the space and efficiency you need and at the price you dream of!

You’ve read about them, dreamed about your own, and probably been passed on the highway by a MINI recently. There’s a reason why the Cooper Clubman is so popular for families—it’s kid and parent-approved, high-tech, and has plenty of room to boot.

Mini Cooper 2019 Oxford Edition

Mini Cooper Releases Its Most Exclusive – And Affordable – Car Yet

For young buyers, the new car purchase process can seem shady and stressful – from sales associates who are either too pushy or act as though you’re wasting their time, to products with price tags that astronomically rise with every option – it’s no wonder many prefer to buy used or forgo individual transportation altogether.

Of course, pre-owned cars come with their own set of problems and stressors, often requiring additional money to cover deferred maintenance, and public transportation or ride-sharing are still not totally safe or inexpensive options. Fortunately, MINI is providing an affordable, practical, stylish, and fun solution: The 2019 Oxford Edition.

The 2019 Oxford Edition is very much a case of addition by subtraction: in either two-door or four-door guise, the Oxford Edition trim starts $2,150 less than its base model brothers, yet adds standard features like carbon black leatherette upholstery, panoramic sunroof, 6.5-inch infotainment screen with a rearview camera and Bluetooth connection, the choice between silver or black 17” wheels, and is available in six vibrant colors including the classic British Racing Green and stunning Starlight Blue.

The newest and least-expensive MINI can be had with either a manual or automatic transmission – both with six forward gears – helping the turbocharged 3-cylinder engine return up to 27 miles per gallon in the city and 35 on the highway.

Make no mistake however – the lowered cost of entry doesn’t mean buyers will sacrifice a highquality product or dealership experience. The fit, finish, and ergonomics of each MINI derive from parent company BMW, and their hardy construction has lead to the two-door Cooper being named an IIHS Top Safety Pick in 2018. Furthermore, Braman MINI of Palm Beach clients enjoy the same level of service no matter their vehicle’s MSRP, which includes three years of covered maintenance and free car washes for life!

The 2019 Oxford Edition stylishly and successfully meshes affordability with a premium ownership experience.

“The MINI Oxford Edition represents a tremendous value for college students and recent graduates who are looking for a fun, stylish car that won’t break the bank. Eligible students and graduates can save thousands on a well-equipped MINI that is ideal to get them to get to campus or their first job out of school in style,” says Randy Clements, Department Head of Product Planning and Aftersales for MINI USA.

The Oxford Edition is offered exclusively to members of the U.S. Military, current college students, and recent graduates within the past 24 months. Young college and graduate drivers will be required to provide a transcript or diploma for an associates, bachelors, medical, law, or other graduate program attended in order qualify. This makes the Oxford Edition not only affordable, but exclusive – another benefit for those keen to stand out in a crowd.

Unfortunately, the Oxford Edition is only available for a limited time, so stop by Braman MINI of Palm Beach today to learn more and test drive one for yourself!

5 Reasons to Buy a MINI Cooper

Why buy a MINI Cooper? Let us count the ways! From a design that conveys a heavy dose of attitude to a performance heartbeat making itself known in every curve, MINI Cooper owners know they’ve got an agile car that will surprise even the most jaded critic. In other words: the MINI Cooper’s just going to make you smile.

  1. Appreciate its design. Few other cars leap out and tell you to enjoy – thoroughly. The MINI Cooper’s practical, sure, but it’s also art you can drive. In the middle of the city, it fits in. On the beach? It fits in. On the road for a camping weekend? It fits in. It fits in precisely because it stands out as fun and unique – and fun and unique fits in anywhere.
  2. Double down on agility. When you buy a MINI Cooper, you’re getting one of the most nimble cars on the market. It’s not going to beat a Porsche on grand touring, but it can literally drive circles and drift figure eights around it. The MINI’s not interested in drag racing you; it wants to impress you with tight, nifty, agile racing.
  3. Driving should FEEL fun. MINI Cooper owners aren’t pretending to fly spaceships or staring and swearing at the 10,000 knobs and dials underneath their arm. They are feeling the bite of tire on the road, the eager burst of the engine, the lean of the next turn. The MINI’s got racing blood in it, with a long heritage of track duels and impressive rallies.
  4. The price is good. Heck, to you can buy a MINI Cooper pre-owned when you’re still in college or the one working on the renovation. They’re accessible in a way most cars with their attitude and performance aren’t.
  5. They have more space than you think. Expect comfort – even if you’re tall. You can fit a family comfortably or two people with luggage on a romantic getaway.

For what you’d use a car like this to do, it’s going to come through every time, and it’s going to be reliable doing it.

Catch ‘Em If You Can: A Racing Lifestyle

We love our Braman family. Today, we introduce you to the Fichters. Parents Traci and Guy are long-time customers – and they have a few future racing champs on their hands. Their children Jason and Jillian know how to put MINI Cooper models through their paces.

Race Car Heroes

It all started at Palm Beach International Raceway. More specifically, 14 year-old Jason became involved with Palm Beach Karting at 14. His sister Jillian would soon follow. Today, Jason is 20 and Jillian is 17. They travel across the continent to compete in pro racing events such as the Pirelli World Challenge.

Jason has finished top five in the PWC championships his two seasons of racing. Jillian got a later start, but is catching up quickly. They both competed in the 14-Hour Enduro at the Daytona International Speedway. It’s an intense event that’s part of the ChampCar Endurance Series. Despite their team starting 124th in a field of 128, they nabbed 30th place and fifth in their class.

Racing Toward Dreams

Racing MINI Cooper models doesn’t get in the way of their schooling, either. Jason is majoring in business management at Palm Beach Atlantic University, and Jillian intends to attend medical school. Jason would like to eventually manage a race team and a performance shop. They’ll both continue to race and compete and, if anything, racing has helped with the discipline needed to attain such lofty career goals.

If you or your kids want to try out racing, start with the basics: safe driving in swift agile cars. MINI lease specials are a great way to introduce yourself to the sport – or simply enjoy a gutsy, spirited ride. Stop by Palm Beach Driving Club to see Jason, Jillian, and other racers test their mettle, and stop by Braman to feel the thrill for yourself.

MINI Takes the Gold with “The Defiants”

MINI Cooper Deals | Braman MINI

Unexpected stories are always appreciated. They are the kind that get written into legend, into the annals of history. And MINI highlighted numerous Olympic athletes this year due to their amazing stories and ability to defy the odds. In this, MINI has dubbed them “The Defiants” and showcased these athletes in an ad to support them and everything they do.

The ad wasn’t just about MINI Cooper deals. It was about showing how it is important to overcome labels, how these labels are not what defines us, and we are who we want to be – even if sometimes it means fighting against the odds. Some of the athletes included were Jake Gibb, a volleyball player who is a two-time survivor of cancer, IIbtihaj Muhammad who is a Muslim fencer, and Carlin Isles, a Rugby player who was once marginalized as “a special ed kid.” Labels have followed these folks – and more – throughout their lives, and they’ve had to work hard in order to show people their true abilities.

Other athletes who participated in unscripted interviews about their challenges included Serena Williams, boxer Claressa Shields, boxer Carlos Balderas, weight-lifter Morgan King, and swimmer Cullen Jones. Each of them had a story to tell, and MINI wanted to help them reach ears across  the nation.

Braman Palm Beach supports MINI’s campaign in every way, and we’re proud to be a part of such an amazing company that goes to the lengths it does. They, too, encourage you to defy labels. You are not just what others say you are. Far from it. You are you – and you decide what that means. Be yourself at Braman Palm Beach and drive home knowing you’ve done something for yourself. Something that will enhance your life and open up new possibilities.

Don’t just Buy a MINI, Create a MINI

Finally, a car that matches your rebellious spirit and reflects your exquisite taste. The new MINI Clubman boasts that buyers have over 10 million ways to create a MINI. Are you ready to MINI Yours?

For both 2-and 4-door hardtop MINI Clubmans, the aptly named MINI Yours program is an excellent way to customize everything from that intense metallic Lapisluxury exterior color you have always fantasized about (it was originally a color for royalty- how suiting) to the Real-Time Traffic Information display to get you to your destination faster and safer.

You can design your Clubman from the outside in. And, if this was not enough reason to buy a MINI, the options now include go beyond those iconic Union Jack mirrors you have been coveting. For example, why settle for one driving mode? The 1.5L twinpower turbocharged engine can be paired with the MINI Driving Modes. These give you more handling control or more fuel efficiency depending on your mood and the terrain beneath you. This way, you can customize your MINI’s performance– after you have already customized the car itself.  

The MINI Clubman also boasts more interior space than ever, making it feel less like a MINI inside and more like a clubhouse. Adding to that is the option for a Harman/Kardon Sound System that includes 12 speakers throughout the vehicle, and the mood lighting that includes 12 settings and 255 colors to match your personality.

Perhaps the most fun feature is the dual-pane sunroof, which is as huge as it is refreshing. If you are not quite sure if you should choose the standard center display or upgrade to the 8.8” XL display complete with audiobook access and other infotainment, you can always check out each feature at a MINI dealership nearest you. They can help answer all your MINI questions.

Don’t buy a MINI; create one. And don’t just drive it. Experience it.

  1. Features – With quality comes all sorts of technological advancements – most of which are simply fun to play with. But that’s not all. Things such as 15-inch wheels, cloth or leatherette upholstery, various packages, and more mean customization and total joy. So when you look for MINI deals, be sure to ask about options.
  1. Spacious – It may seem the opposite, when you visit a MINI dealer in Florida and go for a test drive you’ll quickly realize that MINIs aren’t quite what they seem. Though the car itself is compact, the interior is amazingly spacious. It’s one of the many reasons people love them more and more every year.
  1. Resale Value – If you haven’t leased a MINI, then when you decide to finally sell it you’ll be able to earn back a comfortably large sum as compared to other cars on the market. Because of the elements mentioned above, the MINI retains a lot of its value and passes that on to you.
  1. Community – Not only to MINI drivers have a great time on their own, it’s always fun when they pass one another. What’s more, Braman also offers a place for owners to hang out together – Club Braman. This gives you access to all kinds of great events, each one something to look forward to!
