While MINI USA hasn’t released anything official yet, we are starting to hear of some info about 2010 options. So let’s talk details.
– As we broke a few months back, MINI will be bring to market an entirely new upgraded stereo created by Harman (the maker of all premium MINI stereos since 2001). The new system is to be branded Harmon/Kardon and should make its way into production builds by December.
– The always important multi-function steering wheel will be standard on the MCS starting in 2010
– The Camden and Mayfair models will be coming to the US as special edition models and not as standalone packages as was once thought. So that means unlike the special editions models released in 2006, you won’t be able to order any of the unique trim or exterior colors found on the models.
– After almost eight years Dark Silver will finally become available on the Cooper in the US.
– As previously announced on MF, Interchange yellow will go from a unique Convertible color to a available across the model range effectively replacing Mellow yellow. A shame in our eyes.
Look for other surprises around the 2010 model year in the coming weeks. And remember, for all those considering ordering over the next year, the life-cycle refresh is right around the corner in 2010. We’ll have more on that and the 2010 model year changes in the days ahead.
Thanks everyone for sending this in.
