The Mini’s, they are a changin—but not too much.
A few upgrades will usher in the 2013 Mini lineup, as well as a modest price increase for most models. Mini will make Bluetooth—which was previously a $500 add on feature—standard. SiriusXM satellite radio will now be a $250 option, and will no longer come standard. Coupes will run 2013 model year buyers an extra $150, while Hardtop, Convertible, and Clubman Mini’s will go for $200 more. Roadster models see a more substantial price bump of $1200.
Pricing for the 2013 Mini Countryman, 2013 John Cooper Works GP, and 2013 Mini Clubvan will be announced closer to their respective launches. Mini sales are up approximately 6.0 percent year-to-date over the same period last year. Heading in to the summer season, sales of the 2012 Mini Cooper Convertible and S Convertible have been up sharply, while the 2012 Mini Clubman hasn’t fared as well.
