2010 Mini Cooper

Retro-styled to be a modern incarnation of the original Mini-Minor, the Mini Cooper is offered in standard, S, and John Cooper Works models (the latter two with turbocharged engines). As a tribute to the 50th anniversary of the original Mini, the company has designed two unique commemorative models: Mayfair and Camden. A multi-function steering wheel is now standard, and the Harmon-Kardon audio system is optional.
  • New, standard multi-function steering wheel
  • Harmon-Kardon audio system is now optional
  • Two new, limited-edition 50th anniversary models (Mayfair and Camden) with unique color and trim combinations, 17-inch wheels, special badges and more
  • The Mayfair model is designed to "exude the style and elegance expected from London's most traditional district-complete with astounding get-up-and-go," says the automaker
  • The Camden model is "bursting with energy, spirit and an in-your-face attitude," Mini says
  • The Mini E electric vehicle is discontinued

2010 Mini Cooper Convertible

The drop-top Mini Cooper is also available with a choice of two engines for its front-wheel-drive powertrain. The convertible features an innovative 3-in-1 soft top, designed with an integrated sunroof and heated rear window. The Cooper Convertible receives the same upgrades as the coupe model-however, there are no anniversary models.

2010 Mini Clubman

Think of it as a stretched Mini Cooper (3.15-inch longer wheelbase) with a third door on the passenger side to aid entry/exit and add rear passenger legroom. The rear hatch has been replaced by "split rear barn doors" (just like the original). The Clubman mirrors the updates to the rest of the lineup. There are no anniversary edition Clubman models.
