Mini details Hatch and Convertible range explosion

26 Mini Hatch and Convertible variants now available in Aus following facelift

26 Apr 2021

MINI Australia has revealed the pricing for its new Hatch and Convertible line-up with the facelifted range now opening from $37,500 plus on-roads, marking a $2350 entry price increase.


As previously reported by GoAuto, the updated range has been gifted some tweaked styling, a refreshed interior and on the higher grades at least, a more refined adaptive suspension system.


Still available in the familiar three- and five-door hatchback and convertible (three-door) configurations, the line-up has ballooned out to now encompass 26 variants across five different trim levels.


Starting from the bottom of the range and working up, the base model Hatch and Convertible is now known as the ‘Classic’ with standard equipment highlights consisting of 16-inch wheels, LED head- and tail-lights, cloth and leatherette seats, piano black interior, rearview camera, front and rear parking sensors, parking assistant, adaptive cruise control with stop and go function, driving assistant with lane departure warning, a digital instrument cluster, 8.8-inch infotainment system, wireless phone charging and wireless Apple CarPlay.


Checking in around $2500 north of the Classic is the Classic Plus trim level which adds 17-inch alloys, an expanded array of exterior colour schemes, three drive modes, comfort access, leatherette sports seats with heating function (front), panoramic sunroof and a Harman Kardon sound system.


For an extra $5000 above that customers can opt for the ‘Mini Yours’ specification which ups the ante further with the option of either 17- or 18-inch alloys, Mini Yours Nappa leather steering wheel, anthracite headliner, Mini Yours leather lounge in carbon black, chequered silver interior trim, ambient lighting, Mini Yours floor mats and Mini Yours exterior badging.


All of the variants outlined above are powered by a turbocharged 1.5-litre four-cylinder petrol engine developing 100kW of power and 220Nm of torque all of which is sent to the front wheels via a seven-speed automatic transmission.


Naturally the five-doors are marginally more expensive than their three-door counterparts with the margin hovering between $1000-$1500 depending on the variant while the Convertibles command roughly $5200 over the five-doors.


The Cooper S nameplate has of course been retained as part of the update but has been broken down into three distinct versions in similar fashion to its lesser stablemates.


Priced from $45,700 for the three-door, $46,950 for the five-door and $51,530 for the Convertibles, the Classic trim level once again opens the account, offering customers a gruntier (140kW/280Nm) turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine and a broadly similar standard equipment list to the Hatch Classic.


Being the Cooper S there are some sportier features included as standard such as leatherette sport seats, comfort access and a Nappa leather steering wheel as well as Sport, Mid and Green drive modes.


Next up is the Mini Yours trim which again largely mirrors the kit list of the Hatch equivalent, albeit with a few extra features like a head-up display, concierge services and sun protection glazing.


Cresting the Cooper S line-up is the new JCW Sport (from $53,200) trim level which as the name suggests, bridges the gap somewhat between the Cooper S and full-fat John Cooper Works (JCW) hot hatch.


Compared to the Cooper S Classic, the JCW Sport boasts a unique 17-inch alloy wheel design, a more aggressive JCW aero package, adaptive suspension, anthracite headliner, ambient lighting, dinamica/leather JCW sport seats, panoramic sunroof, sun protection glazing, a Harman Kardon sound system, head-up display and concierge services.


Priced from $54,850, the John Cooper Works is only available in three-door Hatch and Convertible guises with the range opened by the ‘Essential’ trim level which replaces the Pure as the no frills, purely driver-focused option.


Nevertheless, the Essential still comes with plenty of toys including bespoke 17-inch alloys, sport suspension and brakes, LED head- and tail-lights, a piano black exterior, comfort access, anthracite headliner, dinamica and leather JCW sports seats, launch control, Nappa leather steering wheel, rearview camera, front and rear parking sensors, parking assistant, dynamic cruise control, three drive modes, driving assistant, lane departure warning, a digital instrument cluster, 8.8-inch infotainment display, wireless phone charging and wireless Apple CarPlay.


Stepping up to the classic adds 18-inch alloys, more colour options, adaptive sport suspension, leather cross punch upholstery, heated front seats, adaptive cruise control with stop and go, a head-up display, Harman Kardon sound system and concierge services.


The Mini Yours specification builds on that even further with adaptive LED lighting, leather chester or leather lounge interior upholstery, a panoramic sunroof and sun protection glazing.


Power and performance in the John Cooper Works goes unchanged for 2021 despite the model update with the force-fed 2.0-litre four-banger still churning out 170kW/320Nm, all of which is sent to the front wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission with 0-100km/h dealt with in a claimed 6.1 seconds.


At the other end of the spectrum, the eco-minded Electric Hatch line-up has been bolstered to two variants – Classic and Mini Yours – each featuring the same 135kW/270Nm outputs and 32.64kWh battery pack.


Priced from $55,650, the Classic boasts all of the same fruit as the other Classics but with a few unique touches including aerodynamically optimised 17-inch alloys, piano black exterior package, heated leatherette sport seats, adaptive cruise control with stop and go function and four drive modes – Sport, Mid, Green, Green+.


The Mini Yours ($62,825) version meanwhile predictably adds an anthracite headliner, ambient lighting, choice of leather chester or leather lounge interior upholstery, a panoramic sunroof, sun protection glazing, Harman Kardon hi-fi sound system and a head-up display.


Overall Mini sales are up 16.9 per cent year-on-year so far in 2021 with the BMW-owned brand shifting 828 units to the end of March with the Hatch being the bulk seller (394).
