Mini Repair in Kirkland, WA

A Brief History of MINI 

Whether you are driving in Bellevue, Washington, Kirkland, Washington, Redmond, Washington, The Greater Kirkland Area, Washington, or [city 5], your MINI is sure to stand out. The MINI was created in Britain as a response to make a more fuel efficient car. In 1957, Sir Leonard Lord from the Morris Company hired his top engineer Alec Issigonis to lead a team of designers to make this happen. The result was a car with a traverse engine and gear box, which allowed front-wheel drive. With all four wheels pushed to the corners of the vehicle, the car had more interior space and had a wide stance, which gave good balance and nimble handling. 


Production of the first MINI, a two-door saloon, started in 1959. A three-door car was added in 1960. Several more models followed, including a two-door van, a convertible coupe, and a two-door pickup. The iconic MINI Cooper was released in 1961. Following its initial release, MINI released more MINI Coopers with more powerful engines. In addition to being exhilarating to drive, owners loved how easily their MINI became an extension of themselves, which still holds true for MINI drivers in King today. 


The MINI Cooper went on to become the best-selling car in Britain. With all its value at an affordable price, it's no wonder so many Kirkland residents choose to drive a MINI.
