Mini-mal Differences: Mini Prices 2017 Hardtop, Convertible, Clubman


The 2017 Mini Clubman and the 2017 Mini Convertible will roll into the new model year with no price changes. Mini announced that both models will continue to start at $24,950 and $26,800, respectively, for base Cooper models, with more powerful Cooper S Clubman and Cooper S Convertible trims adding $3550 and $3650 to the bottom line. New for 2017, All4 all-wheel drive is an $1800 option on Cooper Clubman and Cooper S Clubman models, while consumers interested in Mini’s most powerful Convertible, the new John Cooper Works Convertible, will have to plunk down a full $36,450 for the 228 horsepower droptop.

Of course, all of these prices are merely the tip of the Mini iceberg, as the brand’s numerous options can quickly inflate both Clubman and Convertible prices. Unlike the larger Clubman and soft-top Convertible, the 2017 Mini Hardtop witnesses a price jump of $250-$300 depending on trim, with the least expensive Cooper and Cooper S Hardtop models coming in at $21,800 and $25,250. Available in either two-door or four-door (add $1000) body-styles, all 2017 Mini Hardtops now come standard with the Media Package. Previously a $750 option, the package includes a front armrest, 6.5-inch screen in the center stack, and Mini Connected, the brand’s connected mobility services that pairs your mobile device with the infotainment system.

That bonus equipment is offset on base Cooper Hardtops that lose the previously standard Mini driving mode selector. The gimmicky feature is now part of the Sport package, which includes dynamic dampers, LED headlights, clear turn signal lenses, 16-inch wheels, and more heavily-bolstered seats. A new Seven Edition package honors the old Austin Seven (and not Mickey Mantle), and amounts to some special badging, silver trim on the roof and door mirrors, a handful of brown interior bits, and model-specific 17-inch wheels. Opting for the package will set Cooper and Cooper S Hardtop buyers back $2500 and $2000, respectively. Meanwhile, a $300 price bump to the high performance, two-door-only Mini JCW Hardtop pushes the model’s base price up to $31,750.
