MINI USA 2020 MINI Pricing and Buyers Guide

2020 MINI pricing is here including a full look at pricing for the revised JCW Clubman and Countryman. The 2020 model year is poised to be a big one for MINI USA as it launches two vehicles that represent both ends of the spectrum of the brand – the all electric MINI Cooper S E and the fastest MINI ever – the all new MINI JCW GP. While details of those two cars will have to wait we have the full rundown of pricing and equipment changes to the rest of the 2020 MINI range.

Most significantly, the 2020 John Cooper Works Clubman ALL4 and 2020 John Cooper Works Countryman ALL4 both gain a new generation engine that produces more than 300 hp, allowing each model to reach 60 mph in 4.9 and 5.1 seconds, respectively (over a second faster for each). How much does that performance cost? As it turns out not as much as we expected. The JCW Clubman and Countryman are now $39,400 and $41,400 (up $3,500 and $3,600 respectively). Compared to the equivalent X2 M35i at $46,450, that’s a fair value in our eyes.

MINI has also upped the standard equipment and base MSRPs across the board. Reading between the lines MINI seems to be playing to what customers want and how they spec their cars giving them more for less but making base MINI cost more. For instance MINI’s Active Driving Assistant option (which at one time cost almost $2,000) is now standard across all models. Let’s take a look at the details.

New MINI John Cooper Works Countryman and Clubman

The 2020 John Cooper Works Clubman ALL4 and 2020 John Cooper Works Countryman ALL4 gain a new generation engine that puts out 301 hp. The new MINI John Cooper Works Clubman turns in an acceleration of 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in 4.9 seconds, with the new MINI John Cooper Works Countryman achieving the same in 5.1 seconds – 1.4 and 1.5 seconds faster than in the respective previous models.

Both of these high-performance variants will also feature lower sports suspensions by 10mm, larger exhaust pipes by 10mm, four-piston brake calipers with 14.2-inch front brake rotors, and 13-inch rear brake rotors, and can reach top speeds of 155 mph.

2020 MINI Clubman – Refresh

For the 2020 model year the MINI Clubman gets a model refresh that includes the following enhancements.

  • Introduction of two new colors: Coral Red Metallic and MINI Yours Enigmatic Black Metallic
  • Redesigned front end featuring redesigned grill, piano black exterior trim, new headlight design, and redesigned LED fog lights
  • New exterior mirror cap design for improved aerodynamics
  • New MINI Yours interior style – Frozen Blue
  • LED fog lights and rear lights in Union Jack design

Two new exterior paint colors.

The extensive range of exterior paint colors available for the new MINI Clubman now adds two variants: Coral Red Metallic and MINI Yours Enigmatic Black Metallic.

Rear lights in Union Jack design.

The rear lights also feature a new design in conjunction with standard LED headlights. As a reference to the brand’s British DNA, the upright light units at the rear of the new MINI Clubman now adopt the Union Jack design that appears on the MINI Hardtop 2 Door, the MINI Hardtop 4 Door and the MINI Convertible.

The flag motif is recreated in the structure of the light functions. The turn indicators are horizontally arranged, and the brake lights have a vertical and horizontal element with the taillight additionally representing the diagonal lines of the British flag. In order to ensure a harmonious lighting effect, all light sources forming the Union Jack graphic are LEDs.
