What's new for the 2009 MINI Cooper Hardtop
For 2009, MINI returns its popular Cooper in all its forms--2-door hardtop, convertible, and Clubman wagon. While the hardtop received a redesign in 2007 and the Clubman adopted that car's second-generation styling on its 2008 introduction, the convertible gets its facelift for 2009. Styling is in keeping with the rest of the MINI lineup. <p><p>The most exciting new addition for 2009 is the John Cooper Works package, currently available on the hardtop and Clubman, with convertible availability likely coming later in the year. The John Cooper Works ups the performance capability of the MINI with a 207-hp version of the MINI's 1.6L 4-cylinder engine, bigger disc brakes, a stiffer sport suspension and 17-inch alloys. The JCW hardtop starts at $28,550, while the JCW Clubman is priced at $30,800.
All the Coopers in the MINI lineup are praised for their agility and fun-to-drive factor, and all of that returns for 2009.
With the addition of the Clubman, there is a MINI to suit all tastes. The cars come as 2-door hardtops, longer Clubman wagons and as convertibles. The base powertrain across the range is a normally aspirated 1.6L 4-cylinder engine. In the hardtop models the engine is capable of 118 hp, while the ragtop sees 115 hp. Transmission options in the hard top models is either a standard 6-speed Getrag manual or a 6-speed automatic with steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters. In the convertible, either a 5-speed manual or continuously variable transmission (CVT) with clutchless manual Steptronic are available.
The Cooper S adds an additional level of performance to the MINI, again available across the range. The S is powered by a 172-hp turbocharged version of the 1.6L (168 hp in the convertible). Six-speeds are the norm on S cars, with either the standard manual or an available automatic. S models also feature 16-inch alloys and sport-tuned suspension for increased agility and responsiveness.
New for 2009 is an exciting 207-hp turbocharged 4-cylinder of the John Cooper Works cars. The 6-speed manual is the only transmission available. Currently available in the hardtop and Clubman, the JCW adds 17-inch alloys, an even more aggressive suspension and big, heavy-duty brakes. Also included in the package are stability and traction control, special exterior and interior appointments, and supportive sport seats.
MINIs are almost endlessly customizable, with a broad palette of exterior and interior color combinations and several cockpit materials. They are also available with a long list of options packages, which add features like an electric sunroof with twin glass front and back, automatic air conditioning, fog lamps, Bluetooth hands-free communication, auto rain-sensing wipers as well as heated seats and mirrors.
All MINI Coopers come standard with six air bags, antilock brakes, electronic brakeforce distribution and brake control and daytime running lamps.
