Mini Announces 2013 Lineup Pricing, Confirms 2013 Countryman Coupe

Things are subtly changing at Mini USA: the company added a round 200 bucks to the purchase price of every Mini, changed a couple of standard features, and then confirmed that the three-door Countryman Coupe will go on sale early next year.

Mini’s stable of 2013 model year cars will get a modest price increase when they go on sale late this summer: Hardtop, Clubman, and Convertible models all get a $200 price bump, while Coupe models add $150. Roadster models, meanwhile, will jump $1200.

Along with that price bump comes a change in standard equipment. All 2013 Minis will now get standard Bluetooth connectivity (formerly a $500 option) in the place of the 2012’s standard SiriusXM satellite radio. The satellite radio, in turn, is now a $250 option (also available in the technology package) and comes with a one-year subscription. In addition, all 2013 Roadsters will come with a semi-automatic power roof and a rear wind deflector, which cost $1000 on the 2012 model.

The price of entry for a MINI Cooper is still under $21,000, with the least expensive Cooper Hardtop costing $20,400 including a $700 destination charge. Elsewhere in the Mini range, the Coupe starts at $22,150, the Roadster starts at $26,250, the Clubman starts at $22,100, and the Convertible starts at $25,850. Going from the Cooper to the Cooper S costs between $3000 and $3600, and going from the S to the John Cooper Works is an additional $6600 to $7200, depending on the model.

Mini didn’t announce pricing, however, for the Countryman crossover, Mini GP II super-sport hardtop model, or Mini Clubvan. Mini says that pricing for those models will be released closer to their respective production dates: the Clubvan goes into production in September, while the 2013 Countryman will roll off the line this November.

Why such a late date for Countryman production? It’s because the production line in Graz, Austria that currently makes the Countryman will also start producing the Mini Countryman Coupe, the three-door crossover based on the Countryman. We first saw the model at the 2011 Detroit Auto Show as the Mini Paceman concept, which featured the same 1.6-liter turbocharged I-4 engine and All4 electronically controlled all-wheel drive as the Countryman but lacked that vehicle’s rear doors. Mini confirmed that the model will go on sale in the United States early next year as a 2013 model year vehicle.
