2007 Mini Cooper S
BMW has just announced pricing for the upcoming 2007 Mini Cooper S model. Although the car is built on a significantly modernized platform and is designed to be cheaper to manufacture (BMW, for example, uses its Prince engine that was developed jointly by BMW and PSA Peugeot Citroen to lower costs), the new Mini will be slightly more costly in comparison with the outgoing model, where the most significant price difference is shown on the least expensive Mini Cooper.
The 2007 Mini Cooper will start at $18,050, which is $600 more than the price of the comparable older Mini. More expensive (and dynamic) 2007 Mini Cooper S will cost only $300 more and will start at $21,200.
Surprisingly, both Cooper and Cooper S convertibles will cost you exactly the same money as the outgoing open-tops ($22,600 and $26,050 respectively) and are effectively sold at a discount, considering the level of U.S. dollar devaluation over the last years.
BMW still doesn’t say anything specific about when the new Mini will in fact come to dealerships, talking about “early 2007″ term.
