Mini USA has raised its prices, with $200 added to the cost of the 2013 Hardtop, Clubman, and Convertible models while the Coupe models are priced $150 higher. Moreover, Mini had switched a couple of standard features for the 2013MY. In addition, its three-door Countryman Coupe will start selling early next year.
However, Roadster models will be priced $1200 higher. Its standard equipment has changed. The good news is that all the 2013 Minis will feature standard Bluetooth connectivity (which used to be a $500 option) instead of the 2012 models’ standard SiriusXM satellite radio. In turn, the satellite radio has become a $250 option (which is also offered in technology package) and gets a one-year subscription.
Furthermore, all the 2013 Roadsters will get a semi-automatic power roof and a rear wind deflector, which is priced $1000 higher than the 2012 model.
A Mini Cooper is priced from below $21,000. The most affordable Cooper Hardtop is priced at $20,400, which includes a $700 destination charge. The Mini range models now have starting prices of $22,150 for the Coupe, $26,250 for the Roadster, $22,100 for the Clubman, and $25,850 for the Convertible.
Moving from the Cooper to the Cooper S costs from $3000 to $3600, while from the S to the John Cooper Works, that’s an additional $6600 to $7200, depending on the model.
The models that don’t have their pricing information released yet are the Countryman crossover, Mini GP II super-sport hardtop model, or Mini Clubvan. Mini said that the pricing of these models will be announced near their starting production dates. The Clubvan will begin production in September, while the 2013 Countryman will start building this November.
