2007 MINI USA Pricing and Options

We have the information many of you have been eagerly waiting for. The full rundown and pricing and options for the 2007 MINIs. Let’s get started…

Pricing

R56 2007 Cooper: Base MSRP: $18,050 + $650 D&H = $18,700
R52 2007 Cooper Convertible: Base MSRP: $21,950 + $650 D&H = $22,600

R56 2007 Cooper S: Base MSRP: $21,200 + $650 D&H = $21,850
R52 2007 Cooper S Convertible: Base MSRP: $25,400 + $650 D&H = $26,050

The R56 Cooper

The Cooper’s base price of $17,450 before destination will increase $600.00. For the increase all Coopers will see the same standard equipment as the R50 and also include On Board Trip Computer, All Season Traction Control, and a Sport Mode Button. The Sport Button will increase throttle response, tighten up the steering, and (if you have an automatic transmission) it’ll add a sportier shifting program. You will also see a standard Getrag six speed manual transmission as well as a rear spoiler.

The R56 Cooper S

The R53 Cooper S’s $20,900 base price will increase only a mere $300.00 and will include everything the Cooper has and additionally standard fog lamps. Starting in March production both models will receive pre wiring for Sirius and HD radio.

Transmissions

The CVT for the Cooper is put out to pasture and replaced with an Aisin 6 speed traditional automatic. The cost for the automatic on the Cooper now is $1,350. The Cooper S has a revised 6 speed Getrag manual transmission and Aisin Automatic. The Cooper also comes standard with a new 6 speed Getrag.

Suspension

The Cooper S no longer has stock “Sport” Suspension. Both models now have a stock “sporty” suspension but it is just known as the “stock” suspension. A “Sport” suspension will be available as an option on both models but not “Sport Suspension Plus.” We’re told one drive will be make you understand the change is purely for naming conventions and to expect all the performance expected in a MINI.

Exterior Color Choices

All colors for the hardtops will have a default roof color unlike the R50/R53 colors coming with a body color roof by default. Here are those combo’s;

Non-Metallics:

Metallics:

You’ll need to specify a different combo if you want one. And as we reported last summer, silver roofs are indeed gone for the time being.

Interior Color and Seating Options

The Color-line color upholstery knee roll and door side armrest adds a new layer of customization to the interior as we’ve seen in various pictures of the R56. Gotham Grey is the standard color with both models. If you keep the standard Leatherette or optional N/C cloth seats the other color-line choices are an additional $200.00. Here’s the rundown for those that might have missed from previous stories:

  • Rooster Red
  • Pacific Blue
  • Mellow Yellow
  • Cream White
  • Dark Grey
  • If you option for either leather or Cloth/Leather seats you will automatically get a color-line at N/C which will be Dark Grey for all seats except Tuscan Beige which will receive Cream White as the default. You can change it at no additional cost. The new Cloth/Leather Seats are a perfect match for the Color-line which come in Rooster Red and Pacific Blue and will cost $1,000 for either choice. To make a small comparison to the R50/R53 the Cloth Leather Seats currently go for $800.00.

    The New Lounge Leather seats which are very similar the the current English Leather seats will be offered in Redwood Red (more like baseball Glove orange) and Black. Either choice will cost $1,900. Other Leathers will also be available such as Carbon Black “Punch” Leather (which has a perforated look) or Tuscan Beige “Gravity” Leather. Both will cost $1,400. Grey Leatherette and Checkered Black Cloth will be offered at no cost.

    Sport Seats are not required when ordering Gravity Tuscan Beige or Punch Carbon Black Leather even though Cooper S’s come standard with them. Additionally if you choose cloth you can change the color of your interior panels from Black to Grey by choosing the Gotham Grey interior at N/C.

    The New Dashboard will be of higher grade material than previously. Besides both the stock Cooper and Cooper S dash, several “Premium” dash options will be offered such as Piano Black and Premium Silver for $200.00 and Real Brushed Alloy and Real English Oak Wood for $300.00. Piano Black will be mandatory for Tuscan Beige and Redwood Leather Seats.

    MINI is charging an additional $200.00 for the color-line interior trim. Not a bad deal all things considered. However, don’t expect the new color-line interior options to be available before March Production.

    To match the dashboard and color-line there will be two premium steering wheels offered. Sport Leather and Sport Wood will both be equipped with Multi Function controls and will retail as a stand-alone option for $550.00.

    A factory Alarm will retail for $400.00. Power Folding Mirrors will be offered for $300.00 but cannot be combined with the Cold Weather Pkg. at this time.

    Sport Package

    The Sport Package will essentially be the same as on the current R50/R53 except for fog lamps on the Cooper S which are now standard. The Xenon lights offered in this package (and a la carte) are now of the “Bi-Xenon” variety. The S-Lite wheels will be replaced by the Crown Spoke wheels. The Cooper 16″ 5 spoke wheels will be replaced with the 16″ 5 star Blasters. Prices will stay the same at $1,400. DSC remains.

    The Web Spoke will still be offered as a $500.00 upgrade on the Cooper S Sport Package as with the R53. You can also now get bonnet stripes with the Cooper Sport Pkg. and All Season Tires will be available at no cost on either model equipped with the sport pkg.

    The Hyper Sport Package

    We’re still getting final details on the various packages but we can share with you one surprise that we hadn’t heard before. A new “Hyper Sport Package” will include the optional Sport Suspension and a new MINI Aero Kit for only $1,400. This means that the new Aero kit will be available as a factory installed item. You can also get the same factory installed Aero Kit as a standalone option for $1,300. It’s worth noting that the MINI Aero Kit will be different from the JCW Aero kit pictured previously on MF.

    Premium Package

    The Premium Package will essentially stay the same except the customer has a choice of which steering wheel they would like and the on board computer is deleted since it is now standard across both models. The price remains unchanged at $1400.

    Convenience Package

    MINI will offer a $1400 Convenience Package with the following:

    • Comfort Access option (allowing you to open the door and/or start the car without ever touching your key)
    • Integrated Bluetooth
    • Rain Sensor
    • Auto Dimming Mirrors
    • Armrest
    • Universal garage door opener

    Comfort Key Access will be offered for $500.00 and Integrated Bluetooth Universal Phone kits will be offered for $600.00 as stand-alone options.

    As we all know the new Navigation System will offer real time traffic info. It will also offer extended voice control and go for $2,100 as a stand alone option. The wonderful part about the system is that you don’t have to pay a subscription for the traffic info. It’s free for life. This will be available from March production.

    Limited Slip Differential

    Limited Slip will be available as a standalone option on the Cooper S at the US launch of the car. Expect the price to be similar to the current $500.

    Audio

    MINI will offer a special Audio package that will combine HD Radio, Sirius Satellite Radio and the new HiFi Stereo for $1400. But the shocker is that MINI is throwing in a lifetime subscription for Sirius Radio with this package.

    Sirius Satellite radio will also be available as a stand-alone option (with a lifetime subscription) for $950.00. HD Radio will run $500.00. The HiFi Stereo (taking the place of the H/K) will be available as a stand alone option but we don’t have pricing yet.

    AUX Input will be standard across the board. A new iPod adapter will also be offered however look for an advanced connector to debut later for MINIs equipped with the navigation system.

    Wheels

    On the Cooper the 15″ 5 start Spooler’s will be standard and the 15″ Rotator Spoke Wheels will be offered as a no cost option. The 16″ 5 star Blaster’s will be a $600.00 upgrade.

    The Blaster’s will be standard on the Cooper S and you can choose the 16″ sidewinders or the 16″ Bridge Spoke Wheels at no additional cost. The optional 17″ wheels will consist of the Crown Spoke Wheels (look like S-Lite’s), Flame Spoke Wheels, or the Web Spoke Wheels. The Crown Spoke and the Flame spoke wheels will cost an additional $600.00. The Web Spoke stand alone cost is unconfirmed at this time.

    MINI and JCW will be releasing a number of new wheels over the next two years so if there’s nothing you like, just stay tuned.

    2007 R52 MINI Convertibles

    The convertibles will have Hyper Blue replaced with Lightning Blue in December. All other colors will remain until March where the Hot Orange will be replaced with Mellow Yellow on both models, Nightfire Red for the Cooper, and Laser Blue for the Cooper S.

    Interior Body Color will gain Pepper White, Lightning Blue, and Mellow Yellow in March also. Power folding mirrors will become available for $300.00 but will not be able to be combined with the Cold Weather Pkg. Last but not least the Cooper Convertible Sport Pkg. will be available with Bonnet Stripes.

    The AUX Input will be standard on all convertibles (as it is on the R56 coupe).

    That’s all we have for now. We’ll be getting more details over the next few weeks and months. And as we’ve reported, this should all get a little more clear once the new MINI USA configurator debuts in December.

    Official US Launch

    MINI USA will be launching the R56 nationwide Presidents Day weekend. Expect MINI dealers from coast to coast to have roll-out events planned and demos available for test drives. With that said some dealers in the eastern part of the US should see the R56 a week or two earlier.

    Order Sheet Download

    For those that would like this spelled out in an easy to print PDF, we’ve got what your looking for. MINI USA’s official pricing sheet (for both options and packages) can be downloaded below:

    MF Analysis:

    We’ve been holding off on letting 2007 pricing slip for awhile now waiting to see if the BMW brass in Munich would alter anything at the last moment. We were warned that things might change (thanks to those wonderful exchange rates) but it looks like MINI USA has held the line and kept the increases on par (and even lower) than some previous years. Considering what MINI offers in both standard equippment and ultimate performance, these prices are still quite impressive. Especially with the much improved interior quality and more efficient and high-tech engine offered on the R56.

      At long last! Hmmm… heated mirrors or folding mirrors?

      any pictures for the NEW pepper white

      I hope the audio bit will be available ala cart. I don’t wanna fork up $1,400 just for the upgraded stereo.

      NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!

      Navigation not until 2007 March Production units? So that means it wont deliver for another month or two after that? UGH! I can’t wait =[

    • msh441

      What!?! The more accurate pricing info is LOWER than what was leaked earlier!!! That’s a nice suprise!

    • Tomasso

      I love those US prices……..

      If I compare them with the Dutch pricelist…… the new price will be approx.:

      Cooper: 19500 euro – > $24960,- Cooper S : 30000 euro – > $38400,-

    • Tomasso

      oops… sorry

      Cooper must be 22000 euro – > $28160,-

    • http://www.dickdavid.com dickdavid

      So the base MSRP for the Cooper has gone from $17,000 to $18,050 in 4-5 years. That seems like a big jump until you think about how much it has changed.

      It’s still a bargain.

      That doesn’t even seem that big to me. It’s a 6.18% increase over 4 years, or about 1.5% year-to-year. The yearly inflation rate was between 2 and 3% for that same period. I’d be interested to see what the price increase is for, say, a VW Golf GTI, Miata, or BMW 3-series.

    • Brent Breon

      Any word on the Limited Slip Diff?

    • JFS

      Great info, thanks Gabe!

      Any info on the LSD availability?

    • Matt

      Seems like the 08 S I want will be around 25K before taxes etc, etc. I can definitely live with that.

    • tonyt

      I love the fact that you pay $650 for Delivery and Handeling, when the car has to be transported thousands of miles, and yet we still pay around the same in the UK, even if you happen to live in Oxford and the car travels only 10 miles!!!!!

      Any word on the Limited Slip Diff?

      Available in Europe half december as an option for just €169

    • eager2own

      Gabe, I don’t know how you do it — but thanks for all the info!!

      I’m sorry to hear that there won’t be an H/K option, but I’ll withhold judgment until I get to experience the HiFi in person. . . and I can’t wait to hear about the updated iPod connector for the nav system — could it mean on screen graphic support?

      I’m also surprised to hear that Hot Orange will not be offered in cabrios — I may have to pick one of those off the used market while I wait for the R57 launch.

    • Matt Korr

      Its looking good. I think I will be trading in my 05 Cooper for an 08 S!!!

    • Adam

      Can OEM nav be installed after purchase of a car? :(

    • Chad

      Shame to see the Hot Orange go. I was hoping that would make its way to the hardtops, not the history books.

    • ISELLEM

      auxilaray audio input for convertibles is already standard

    • BumbleBee

      Any info on adjustable lumbar support? In 2004, leather was required to get it.

    • eto

      I find the default roof colors interesting. I like that the each color has a default of a contrasting roof. That design element is one of the defining characteristics of the “MINI look” so it is good to see them push it a little more.

      Is this change for MINIs worldwide or just those in the US.

      $950’s kind of a steep acquisition cost for the satellite radio, but it’s nice that it’s a lifetime subscription. For comparison, the Sirius option for an ’06 is $570, so you end up paying for about 3 years of service (at $9.95/mo). I was wondering when some of these subscription services would have this kind of “lifetime” option.

    • Drill

      Any idea if the Hyper Sport Package will be a stand-alone option or will you also be required to select the Sports Package as well? (I’m assuming you’ll need the Sport in order to get the Hyper, but had to ask)

    • http://www.rocketcitymini.com SBrcm

      Oddly enough, I’ve always enjoyed the exterior styling of the current MCS over the MC yet the R56 I like the MC better. The only thing I don’t care for on the MC is the rear fog light. Yet I still like it better than the 80’s Jaguar styling of the dual rear fogs on the MCS.

      I like how the DSC has been moved to the premium from the sport package. That makes more sense.

    • mpike

      I am a bit confused about the roof colors. Bottom line, does the roof color given for each body color in the article the only way you can order a car in that specific body color? Please tell me it’s not so. I was planning to get a silver/silver combination

      Shoot.

      I was hoping I wouldn’t be so excited. And the prices and colors are great….and once I drive one…

      When again will the Traveller come out? Can I wait that long or will the fiancee’s Civic be gone by the end of the summer….

    • Brendan

      Gabe any official word on LSD availability for USA?

      Those are the default combinations. I believe you will still be able to get body color roof for all colors.

    • Craig

      The roof colors only affect the way the dealers order colors. If a roof color is not selected it will default to the roof colors listed above. For example, Laser Blue will default to a black roof if no roof color is selected. However, it may specifically be ordered with a roof in white or body color.

      Previously the roofs would default to body color regardless.

      It is.

      Any word on the Limited Slip Diff?

      Yes, just added to the story above. Short answer: it’ll be available at launch.

      I love the fact that you pay $650 for Delivery and Handeling, when the car has to be transported thousands of miles, and yet we still pay around the same in the UK, even if you happen to live in Oxford and the car travels only 10 miles!!!!!

      What can I say. The US has really cheap gas.

      I find the default roof colors interesting. …Is this change for MINIs worldwide or just those in the US.

      To my knowledge this is just for the US market to both help with the ordering process and to subtly promote the contrast roof.

      Can OEM nav be installed after purchase of a car? :(

      Unless you have endless amounts of money burning a hole in your pocket the answer is no.

      Bottom line, does the roof color given for each body color in the article the only way you can order a car in that specific body color?

      No. Nothing has changed in terms of roof colors combinations you can order.

      When again will the Traveller come out?

      Spring of 2008.

    • iNomis

      Gabe, any idea on the lowest option price to get cruise control now?

    • Adam

      By 2007 March Production, does that mean the car won’t be built until then, and then another month or two for delivery? So earliest some of the packages will be available will be Summer ?

    • http://brettwalker.net petsounds

      I’m not clear on what color options leatherette will come in. Just black?

      I’m real surprised to see that the nav system is being delayed from the initial launch. That is my single most must-have when spec’ing this time, especially with the knowledge that they’ll be adding enhanced iPod functionality to it later on.

      My lease on my ’04 is up in Jan. I’m really at a crossroads to whether I will get another MINI or look elsewhere. I still haven’t gotten used to the new styling on the S … it just honestly bothers me. Do I love the handling of the car enough to not miss the old style? Will it even have the old handling, or will it feel like a small BMW? So many questions.

    • Doger

      So, will it be as good an autocross car? Or will the previous models be the cars to drive in H-Stock and G-Stock?

    • Bilbo Baggins

      Well done, Gabe!!!

      Always a fountain of information. Thanks.

    • dark06mcs

      still waiting for a “body matched arches/trim” option. maybe the mysterious “mini aero kit” will answer this?

      Oy.. I don’t think I can hold off until this summer for a new MINI.. I may have to sacrifice the NAV system now.. Which will absolutely kill me =[

      Will the LSD be available on an automatic-equipped MCS this time? I hope the Hyper Sport does away with the stock rear MCS bumper. Visually, I think it’s the only blemish with the new redesign.

    • Blake

      Hm… just a thought. If the 2002-2006 were so expensive to build, why is this care more expensive?

    • karlInSanDiego

      As always guys, thank you.

      A couple of questions: Has anyone tried to compare the sports suspension head-to-head with the stock? Are those upcoming JCW seats priced and have folks seen or tried these in a previous gen mini? Torn between those seats (assuming only available in black leather? price??) and the Redwood Red Lounge Leather (photos look maroon, not baseball orange-that’s a real concern if we won’t see these until we receive an ordered car). We’re looking forward to the JCW Aero kit and hope we can do that on a first round delivery.

    • Brendan

      DOH!!! no color lines before March production!!! Lame.. I really wanted the two-tone blue black seats with the blue color line. I guess one could always bolt on the color line later. I wouldn’t imagine it being too much to do that.

      Gabe, How come the pricing from BMW shows a JCW package for the Cooper S Vert only and not the hardtop?

    • http://www.motoringfile.com/ Gabe

      How come the pricing from BMW shows a JCW package for the Cooper S Vert only and not the hardtop?

      Because the JCW package for the R52 is the same one that has been sold at dealers and from the factory for a few years. The JCW kit for the “new” MINI (the R56) will debut next fall.

      Hi!

      In the US, there is a package called “Hyper Sport” that comes with the Aero Kit and Sport Suspension (plus?).

      Some have heard this Aero Kit is the same as the JCW kit. OThers have heard it’s a new, seperate one (as yet unseen). Does anyone here (Gabe?) have more information on it, or maybe a friendly neighborhood dealer they can ask?

      Hyper-Sport (ZHS) $1,400 (3/1/07): Aero kit, Sport suspension plus

      ala Carte: Aerodynamic Kit (3/1/07) $1300/ZHS

      The other question, of course, is, if the S already has the upgraded “Sports Suspension”, why spend the addtional $100 on the package when all you’re going to get is the Aero Kit?

      My understanding was there was the “regular” suspension and the “sports” suspension on the S, and that there was no “Sports Plus.” Accurate?

      On the U.S. “2007 Ordering Guide Distribution” PDF, in the packages list, the Hyper Sport package lists parts 7AR as the Aero Kit and 226 as “sport suspension plus”. However, if one goes to the ala carte parts list, the Aero Kit retains its name and number, and part 226 is simply called “sports suspension.”

      Any light anyone can shed on this would be appreciated.

      Thanks, JMelrose

      Sorry for multiple posts of this. I’m not sure which comments are being read anymore…

      It is different – as mentioned above in the story.

      Yes – There was a typo on the official options sheet.

      I’ve tried to find the answer, and I know that the 07 Mini’s hardtops with be the new model, any ideas when Mini will be coming out with the new model in a convertable version, cause I’m assuming its the same body style as the current version? I’m hoping it isn’t along the same lines as when it came over here in 01 thats its lagged 4 years behind cause that would mean not till 2011 which, I guess I’d just get the R56 until then.

      I have an ’07 S ordered, and was told by the dealer that heated mirrors and washer jets must be standard on the S since they are listed on their order with “No charge” next to them. Would this be washer jets on the mirrors or headlights?
