Maintenance costs of the Cooper S are expectedly high, but if the car you are looking at comes with the optional extended service package, which at the time of launch was available for up to six years / 1,10,000km, then the service costs will be significantly lower.
The Cooper S also sports run-flat tyres that, in the event of a puncture, can drive on up to 80km at 80kph.
The Mini Cooper, in its S form, has a base price of around Rs 35 lakh.
