In Torrance, CA, it's not just about having the right numbers, it's about having fun

Somehow, somewhere, some car buyers started getting pre-occupied with left-brain things like engine displacement and total cubic feet.

We've noticed our customers driving home with their left brains satisfied and their right brains ready for a whole lot of fun.

South Bay Mini is conveniently located near I-405, with very good access to the Interstate. Use the map on this page and have fun when you get here. For example, the famous Mini Cooper has been providing plenty of good times for years in the form of a Hardtop two-door, four-door and a let-your-hair-down convertible.

Mini Cooper: Let the good times roll

Welcome to our Mini dealership in Torrance, California offering new Mini models and a variety of used cars! The editors at U.S. News & World Report noted that, while the Mini Cooper's turbo four can accelerate faster and produce 228 horsepower, that's not the end of the story. They pointed out that even the entry level three-cylinder engine "feels peppy when taking off from a stop." That should excite value-minded buyers from around Hawthorne and Carson, CA when they take the Mini Cooper out for a test drive on nearby I-405.

The Mini Hardtop: Enjoyment on-board

As a company, Mini has its roots in the more carefree side of Great Britain, where it was born, but it's now owned by the engineering geniuses at BMW. Therefore, every Mini is a delightful blend of British mirth and German precision. Mini made the good decision to take much of its infotainment system from BMW. There's the simplicity of a simple central knob to control some settings along with a big user-friendly screen.

Inside the new Mini Hardtop, the standard touchscreen is a large 8.8 inches. A six-speaker stereo is standard, a 12-speaker Harman Kardon system is available and so is Apple CarPlay® compatibility. Other available features include wireless charging for your devices so you can stay in touch with your world as you drive around Redondo Beach, CA. To stay in touch with the world over your heard you can get the optional panoramic moonroof.

Financing options for buyers not far from Torrance, CA

The friendly experts in our finance center are adept at explaining the pros and cons of your choices for financing a new or pre-owned Mini. They can also help you finance any of our quality used cars from Mini and other very credible, popular brands. You might, for example, end up preferring a car loan. It would allow you to build cash value in your new Mini, and that's real money you can use someday to help pay for your next car.

On the other hand, you might be more attracted to the simplicity and benefits of a lease. If you decide to lease a new Mini, you'll almost certainly have lower monthly payments than you would with a car loan. In addition, at the end of your lease - usually 36 months - you can just drop off your leased Mini, sign up for a new lease and drive home happily in another brand-new Mini. You don't build cash value but you do maximize monthly cash flow.

Our service center: Another way we support you in Torrance, CA

Pardon the expression but add it all up: Outstanding service, simple financing and the fun of a Mini. They're all not far from Inglewood and Gardena CA, and they're all nice and close to I-405. Schedule a test drive of a new or pre-owned Mini and let the fun begin at South Bay MINI in Torrance, CA.
