The man from our favorite kind of road received the new MINI's pricing from a Deep Throat within the automaker. The pricing is printed below, but the short-and-sweet version is simple: a $700 increase on the Cooper and a $400 increase on 'S' models. That's not entirely out of line, considering the upgraded interior and extra performance of the new model.

Current Cooper (2006) – Base MSRP: $17,450 + $550 D&H = $18,000
New Cooper (2007) –Base MSRP: $18,050 + $650 D&H = $18,700

Current Cooper S (2006) –Base MSRP: $20,900 + $550 D&H = $21,450
New Cooper S (2007) –Base MSRP: $21,200 + $650 D&H = $21,850

No word yet on how much the JCW package will set you back, but don't expect it before 2008. You'll probably see a press release soon.

      For some strange reason, I am actually excited about this car. No clue why but I am...

      The new car might also have more standard content. Was the feature list also leaked, or just the base prices?

      Here is an example of how the manufacturer is screwing their customers in Canada. The base Cooper S in the U.S. costs $23,365 in Canadian dollars.

      The Canadian price for the Cooper S is $34,100. The only model available is the so called Cooper S with 'Rallye Package' although the specs seem the same as the U.S. car. The Canadian car may include metallic paint which is an extra in the U.S.

      UGLY all day long,
      never liked the car, haven't even warmed up to the styling

      Mini is a case of something perfect becoming perfecter. Very rare in any niche product. I love this car.

      why is there an increase in price...? is the cooper really that popular?

      oh well, i think it looks a bit bland.
