Looking to add the new 2012 MINI Coupe as one of your family cars when it goes on sale this October? With prices that start at $22,000 for the base MINI Coupe and top out at $31,900 for the John Cooper Works variant, you get a lot for your money from the newest MINI.
The MINI Coupe will be available in Cooper, Cooper S, and John Cooper Works. Power for the base Cooper Coupe comes from a naturally-aspirated 121-horsepower 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine. Opt for the mid-level Cooper S and you get 181 horsepower from the turbocharged version of the 1.6-liter four-cylinder. Cooper S pricing starts at $25,300. All pricing includes a $700 destination charge.
The top-of-the-line MINI Coupe is the John Cooper Works variant, starting at the aforementioned $31,900. Here you get an amped-up 208-horsepower from the same 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder, due to output tuning. See MotorAuthority for more detail on the 2012 MINI Coupe pricing and specifics.
There’s also good news in the pricing for the rest of the MINI lineup. With the exception of two John Cooper Works versions, (MINI Hardtop and MINI Convertible), MINI is only increasing prices $100 across the board. The MINI Hardtop and MINI Convertible in John Cooper Works trim start at $30,600 and $35,800, respectively. But these now include an aero kit as standard (it was optional in 2011).
So whether you’re in the market for any of the five models (three variants each) of 2012 MINIs, the price – as they say – may be right.
