If you've never shopped for a car before, you might have heard that the process can be a bit overwhelming. Fortunately, our MINI dealers near Chicago, IL are ready to assist you. Whether you're buying a pre-owned MINI model or you've had your eye on the 2020 MINI Convertible, MINI of Glencoe is the place to go.

New Car Research

Before you buy your new car, you're going to want to do some research. Figure out what kind of vehicle you want, how much cargo room you need, and how many people you need seating for. Take a look at in-car technology and safety features and figure out which ones are necessary for you. Is all-wheel drive a priority? Do you want a high-performance model? All of these are important factors to consider.

Take a Test Drive

After you find some models that you like, it's time to take a test drive. Pick out a few models and set aside a good amount of time. Take each MINI vehicle out on the road and see how it drives in different conditions. Are you enjoying your time behind the wheel? Are in-car technology features easy to use and within reach? Is there enough leg- and headroom? Make sure that there aren't any things about the car that might disrupt you on your daily commute or on a lengthy road trip.


Pick a Financing Plan


Then it's time to talk MINI financing. Generally, you start by making a down payment that covers around twenty percent of the vehicle's cost and you get a loan to cover the rest. This loan has an interest rate attached, and the better your credit history, the better your rate will be. We work with drivers of all credit histories to help them get the financing they need, so before you know it, you'll be driving away in a new MINI vehicle you love.


If you're ready to finally take the plunge and buy a new MINI vehicle, talk to our friendly and knowledgeable MINI dealers. We look forward to helping you out!
