2012 MINI Cooper Coupe Features

9.0
On Features
The base 2012 MINI Cooper Coupe starts at a rather reasonable $22,000, but comes with a fairly basic set of equipment, the highlights being HD Radio and SiriusXM satellite radio, a standard six-speaker CD audio system, plus complimentary roadside assistance.

Optional extras include navigation, a Harmon/Kardon audio system, an electronic differential lock system, sport suspension, run-flat tires, upgraded 16- or 17-inch alloy wheels, park distance control, MINI Connected, and a whole host of cosmetic upgrades for the interior and exterior. Many of these options are standard equipment on the pricier Cooper S and John Cooper Works models.

A range of packages bundle some of these options together, including Premium, Sport, and Technology packages. With a long list of optional upgrades and personalization features, the MINI Coupe is just as customizable as any other MINI, and far more so than most other cars in the segment--but beware the bottom line: the price can rise rapidly into the $40,000 range on a well-equipped John Cooper Works model.

Though lightly equipped in base form, the 2012 MINI Cooper Coupe is highly customizable, with a wide range of available upgrades--just beware the potential to balloon the price tag.
