From day one, MINI was conscientiously designed and manufactured for maximum efficiency. Born in the midst of a fuel crisis, Sir Alec Issigonis helped develop a gas (or petrol) sipping car that could still comfortably accommodate rear passengers. Using innovative design and engineering, he ended up creating one of the world’s most iconic brands. Today, MINI is just as committed to efficiency – and this includes cost-efficiency for owners. It is one of the most accessible luxury brands on the market. The 2021 MINI Cooper Oxford Edition makes it even more “ownable.”
What is the 2021 MINI Cooper Oxford Edition?
The MINI Oxford Edition is a specially priced hardtop that is dedicated for college students, recent grads, and active or recently retired military members. For about $20,000, these folks could get one of the world’s best – and zippiest – automobiles. Approximately $7000 of add-on features are included, including automatic transmission, exterior paint upgrade, heated front seats, panoramic sunroof, Cosmos 17 inch wheels, and anthracite headline. Of course, the Oxford Edition comes standard with black leatherette upholstering, parking distance sensors, black roof and mirror caps, and a 6.5 inch color infotainment display.
Part of any MINI is also great gas mileage. The 2021 MINI Cooper Oxford Edition gets about 27 mpg city and 35 mpg highway. If anyone could stand to save at the pump, it’s our students, grads, and those who serve.
MINI Oxford Edition Reviews
MINI Oxford Edition reviews are kind; this is a good, solid, reliable (and fun) vehicle. While an “entry level” model and only available in hardtop, this is a terrific deal. And we have even better news.
In 2020, MINI expanded availability to everyone. That’s right: you don’t need to be a student or recent grad. You don’t have to be in the military or recently retired. You can be a teacher, a nurse, an entrepreneur, a plumber, an electrician…. You get the idea.
Now, this is likely a temporary measure given the chaos that 2020 has brought to the world. Thanks, MINI, for giving us a silver lining! It also means that if you’ve been eyeing a MINI hardtop, now is the time to get behind the wheel.
