2012 MINI Cooper Hatchback
Benefits of Driving a 2012 MINI Cooper Hatchback
The MINI Cooper is one of the most exciting and stylish cars on the market. All models offer fun, agile handling. The base model features excellent fuel economy at 28 mpg city and 37 mpg highway, while the convertible allows for carefree, top-down motoring at the push of a button. The Cooper S brings serious performance to the MINI lineup and the Clubman adds extra space for sharing the MINI motoring experience with friends. The John Cooper Works package, first available in 2009, adds performance tweaks to turn the already go-kart-like MINI into the hottest hatchback on the road.
What's new for 2012?
2012 sees only minor updates to the MINI Cooper, most of which are related to customization options. Debuting this year is the 'MINI Yours' feature, which includes an array of additional interior and exterior color and upholstery options. Other MINI Yours features include a leather instrument panel cover, 2-tone steering wheel and 17-inch wheels for the Cooper and Cooper S. All Coopers have been given an optional new interior mirror with compass, and hardtop Coopers get new 15-inch wheels.
