Major changes included:
One of several MINI spinoffs, the rakishly-styled Coupe is the iconic brand's first two-seater. Like other MINIs, it is available in Base, S and John Cooper Works (JCW) trims. The base model features 15-inch wheels; the S trim has 16-inch wheels, a turbocharger and other sport-oriented appointments; the JCW, finally, includes 17-inch wheels, and numerous performance and appearance upgrades. For 2013, Bluetooth and a USB/iPod adapter replaced a newly-optional satellite radio as standard features. An automatic transmission also became available on the JCW trim.
