5 2012 Cars for Hispanic Entrepreneurs

Check out five more options to help Hispanic business owners drive in style.

In part one of this series I profiled several vehicles that would be well-suited for Hispanic-owned small and medium businesses to buy or lease. In this article, I profile five additional 2012 autos representing a cross section that would appeal to a range of budgets and tastes.

Chrysler 200 Convertible

The Chrysler 200 convertible has been making a splash in the Hispanic business community of late. The luxury feel of the car with an affordable price allows you to impress your clients without taking out a mortgage to do so. The American-made car delivers in terms of performance, with 31 MPG, an electronic stability control system, MacPherson strut suspension and the award-winning Pentastar V6 engine running at 283 horsepower. It even utilizes a flex fuel supply system, which allows it to run on any blend of gasoline and ethanol up to E85.

If you need your car to turn heads but you don’t want to spend a lot of money on a status symbol, the Chrysler 200 convertible looks, drives and feels like a luxury car, but it’s priced like a working man’s vehicle.

MINI Roadster

The MINI Roadster version of the Cooper is the roadster made famous in the film “The Italian Job.” Very similar to the Coupe, the Roadster is markedly different in appearance with its soft top, raked windscreen and stainless steel roll bars. The rear spoiler deploys at 50 MPH, lending this car a bit more control and style, but maintaining that distinctive MINI Cooper look that has been catching on in the Hispanic market.

MINI autos are primarily known for their style, but their incredible mileage and 141 HP 1.6-liter four-cylinder engines make them nothing to sneeze at on the road. Available in more affordable models and the pricier JCW, MINI Roadsters offer a great combination of power, speed, reliability and style.
