The optional Mini Excitement package offers up LED interior and ambient lighting, and will even throw the Mini logo onto the ground via a projector in the driver's side mirror whenever the door is open or closed.
A six-speed manual transmission is standard on both the Cooper and Cooper S trim lines. The Cooper trim line has an available six-speed Steptronic automatic transmission, while the Cooper S has an optional eight-speed Steptronic or Steptronic sport automatic transmission.
The available Mini Connected XL Journey Mate system will plan routes and offer information along that route. There are also a whole slew of optional driver assist programs like a head-up display, adaptive cruise control, collision and pedestrian warnings and a rearview camera.
