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.
