Car and Driver
We found the technology package fairly easy-to-use and navigate, despite the fact the screen is not touch sensitive.
As has been the case since the Cooper's debut, a multitude of dealer-installed features are additionally available.
At long last some serious attention has been paid to cleaning up the Mini's haphazardly arrayed instrument panel.
The 2013 MINI Cooper lineup is presented as a canvas of sorts; base equipment is ample but rather spartan, and it leaves plenty of space for equipment upgrades and personalization.
In its base configuration, the Cooper is simple, and some may think that it's a little short on value compared to other small cars. Standard equipment includes: power windows, locks and mirrors; an AM/FM/CD audio system with auxiliary input; ambient lighting; and keyless ignition.
Options on the Cooper lineup include a ten-speaker stereo and a joystick-controlled navigation/infotainment system. The USB/iPod interface and Bluetooth phone connectivity, both features that used to be optional, are now standard for 2013.
The interior and exterior likewise can be highly personalized to suit the driver's tastes, from custom roof decals to contrasting body/mirror paint and a wide range of vinyl decals. Performance and handling packages are also available to further enhance your MINI Cooper.
Watch the bottom line; the 2013 MINI Cooper offers plenty of customization potential, but it can add up quickly.
