In addition to a few minor color updates, the Mini Cooper Coupe adds two new standard features for 2015: automatic wipers and automatic climate control.
How Much Does a 2021 MINI Cooper Coupe Cost?
The MINI Cooper Coupe comes in three available trim levels. There's a base model, called simply the Coupe, a midlevel Cooper S Coupe and a high-performance John Cooper Works (JCW) model.
Drivers who choose the base-level Cooper Coupe ($22,900) get 16-inch alloy wheels and basic power accessories, such as windows, mirrors, locks and keyless entry, along with newly standard automatic climate control and rain-sensing wipers. The Coupe also includes standard leatherette upholstery and iPod and USB connectivity. A 121-hp 1.6-liter engine is standard.
Upgrade to the Cooper S Coupe ($26,200), and you get a turbocharged version of the base model's engine, which is good for 181 hp. Other upgrades include fog lights, a firmer sport suspension, sport seats and sport pedals.
Topping the range is the John Cooper Works trim ($32,800), which boosts power to 208 horses. It also features an even firmer sport suspension, an aerodynamic body kit, 17-in wheels and strong Brembo brakes.
While those prices may not seem so bad, the Cooper Coupe's biggest problem is that so many features are relegated to the options list. There's a Cold Weather package with heated seats and heater mirrors; a Premium package with keyless ignition and automatic headlights; a Technology package with the Mini Connected smartphone integration system, rear parking sensors and an upgraded sound system; and a Sport package, which adds larger wheels, sport seats and sport-tuned traction control. Like most Mini models, the Cooper Coupe also offers a long list of color options. An automatic transmission is $1,250 extra.
Is the 2021 MINI Cooper Coupe a Safe Car?
The 2015 Mini Cooper Coupe comes with standard stability control, 4-wheel anti-lock disc brakes and four airbags (front and side).
The Cooper Coupe had not been crash-tested stateside as of this writing, but other Mini models have generally fared well in National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) crash tests. The Cooper Hardtop, for example, earned four stars overall from NHTSA, along with strong marks from IIHS.
