The Mini Cooper is a classic and classy legend. That reputation makes this subcompact hatchback an attractive choice, but it isn’t cheap, especially with optional extras. Here are details about the latest model, including the cost of a fully loaded 2024 Mini Cooper.

What’s included with the 2024 Mini Cooper base model?

The standard 2024 Mini Cooper is relatively affordable, starting at around $26,000. This model has two doors and a hardtop. It seats four comfortably on synthetic leather upholstery. Tech features include an 8.8-inch infotainment touchscreen and a 5.0-inch digital gauge cluster display.

It also provides advanced safety features such as forward collision warning and automatic emergency braking. And standard convenience features include rain-sensing windshield wipers and a rear parking distance control system. Though the interior is well-equipped, the powertrain doesn’t impress.

Mini gave the Cooper a 1.5-liter turbo-three-cylinder engine making 134 hp and 162 lb-ft of torque. Those aren’t great numbers, but the engine is potent enough to push the car from 0 to 60 mph in 7.6 seconds. It also gets decent gas mileage of about 34 mpg combined.

Because the Cooper is a popular car, Mini gave customers many customization options. One of the biggest is a four-door option, making the car larger and allowing it to seat five. That said, the four-door Cooper doesn’t provide access to the most expensive model, the John Cooper Works. 

The John Cooper Works starts at over $35,400. Its main upgrade sits under the hood. This car swaps out the three-cylinder engine for a 2.0-liter turbo-four. This power plant produces 228 hp and 235 lb-ft of torque — nearly 100 hp more than the base engine. As a result, the JCW can zoom from 0 to 60 mph in 5.9 seconds.

On top of that, the automaker improved the car’s performance by upgrading its suspension and braking systems. For example, it gets Brembo front brakes and a specially tuned suspension.

The John Cooper Works also boasts a few extra upscale amenities, such as a 12-speaker premium sound system and heated exterior mirrors with washer jets.

In addition, customers can pay extra for various options, packages, and accessories. With all those added, a fully loaded 2024 Mini Cooper John Cooper Works costs upward of $59,000.

Packages, options, and accessories add up

The 2024 Mini Cooper John Cooper Works provides access to numerous extras.

For instance, the Iconic Trim package costs $7,400. It adds luxurious features like a head-up display, wireless phone charging, heated front seats, and much more.

Less expensive à la carte options include adaptive cruise control for $500, a heated steering wheel for $250, and roof rails for $250.

Optional accessories abound too. For example, there’s a $2,700 wheel and tire set, a $159 roof graphic, and a $138 bike rack.

With all those bells and whistles, it’s no wonder a fully loaded Mini Cooper costs nearly $60,000.
