ADDITIONAL MODEL INFORMATION

Although Mini is celebrating the arrival of its sporty new Coupe, it's also focused on keeping the rest of its lineup fresh for 2012. The automaker's Hardtop, Convertible, Clubman and Countryman models will all received updates for the new model year, including revised pricing, trim changes and new equipment.

Mini's big news for 2012 is the debut of "MINI Yours," a new program designed to increase exclusivity. MINI Yours lets buyers choose from a series of premium trim and upholstery options designed to provide a more unique, high-end feel. Such options include a two-tone leather steering wheel, a two-tone, leather-wrapped instrument panel with exposed stitching and new "Soda pattern" leather which includes a unique upholstery pattern with contrasting piping and an accent stripe running down the middle of each seat. Unique 17-inch alloy wheels are also available with the program.

Although Mini hasn't released full details, it's likely that MINI Yours may soon offer highly-exclusive colors and more individual upholstery and interior options designed to appeal to the automaker's wealthiest customers. Pricing for the new program's options hasn't been announced, but we suspect a fully loaded Mini Hardtop could exceed $40,000 – especially with the John Cooper Works performance package.

Pricing for Mini's 2012 lineup will stay about the same as 2011, with each model increasing just $100. The only exception are the John Cooper Works versions of the Mini Hardtop and Mini Convertible, where prices will increase $800 thanks to the addition of a standard sporty-looking aero body kit.

Other changes to the Mini family for 2012 are minor. Cooper and Clubman models get new standard wheels, and all models add an available compass to the interior rearview mirror. Polar Beige cloth will now be available across the range, as will Satellite Gray Lounge Leather and Carbon Black Cloth/Leather. The entire lineup will also receive standard Cosmopolitan floormats.
