MINI Coupe One Of "Next Year's Hottest Vehicles"



The Los Angeles Times in a special advertising feature discusses choices fo "The Class of 2012," next year's hottest vehicles with Kristina de la Cuesta, research director at Intellichoice.com. One chosen vehicle is the MINI Cooper Coupe about which the article say,
Since BMW launched the new-generation Mini a decade ago, the brand has flourished, its lineup growing to include a convertible version of the original Cooper, a Clubman wagon and the Countryman crossover. Mini’s march continues with the two-passenger Cooper Coupe. Starting at just $22,000, the coupe is at once familiar and far out. Its entry-level engine will hit a respectable 127 mph but, as with all Minis, this car is as much about personality as performance (check out the speed-activated spoiler).

“The new Coupe … will add even more fun and variety to the brand,” de la Cuesta said.
