Before the days of MINI Cooper mania here in the US in the early part of the last decade, BMW was looking for a way to go a little bit down market and reach new customers. They launched the 318ti, also known as the Compact, a hatchback variant of the E36 3 series platform. It was a bold move by BMW, considering the last hatchback they produced they didn’t bother bringing stateside, the 2002 Touring. The hatchback was a still relatively new idea that was just gaining traction when it was introduced, but it soon became a favorite for those seeking sport and utility in one neat package. A few 2002 Tourings have trickled over to these shores throughout the years such as this silver 2002tii Touring for sale in California with only 55,000 miles on the clock.

After making the annual Thanksgiving holiday trip a few weeks ago, I’m still enamored each day with how much cargo I can jam in the back of my MINI Cooper S. These MINIs are certainly more commodious than they get credit for and most of it is down to the fact that you have a big tailgate to work with. Even better is that they share a just a wee bit of distant BMW DNA with this car we see here. The 2002tii has been a recognized commodity in the collector market for some time, with the Tourings commanding just a bit more in the marketplace. A good 2002tii will set you back around the mid $20,000 mark on average today, with Tourings bringing a bit more due to exclusivity. Given the condition and provenance of this one, we’re probably looking at somewhere in the high $20,000 range to right around the $30,000 mark.
