JCW_F56_5485-highResSince we published the list of equipment changes for the 2016 Model Year, there’s been an on-going debate about rear fog lights.

MINI Dealerships are #1 in customer satisfactionAvid MotoringFile readers and White Roof Radio listeners know that we are due for a new car by the end of this year.

MINI USA April Sales: Up 25% with the New Five Door Killing the Countryman

MotoringFile Sections: Official News, Sales May 1st, 2015 23 Comments


For April, MINI USA reports 5,476 automobiles sold, an increase of 24.7 percent from the 4,390 sold in the same month a year ago. Good news for the brand but the more interesting news are the detailed figures. The Countryman’s numbers are down by almost 40% (800 units) year over year at least marginally due to the new five door. That five door (the F55) is selling briskly with 1503 units sold in April. That’s only about 600 less than the F56 three door hatch.

Other interesting figures after the break. continued →
