Here's what you will pay for the 2022 model year.
After updating to its Cooper lineup for the 2022 model year, Mini made similar changes to its high-performance John Cooper Works models. The 2022 Mini John Cooper Works Hardtop and 2022 Mini John Cooper Works Convertible continue to utilize a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine driving the front wheels with 228 horsepower and 236 lb-ft of torque. A six-speed manual transmission remains the base option, while an optional eight-speed automatic lowers the 0-60 mph time from 6.1 to 5.9 seconds.
Pricing for the 2022 JCW Hardtop starts at $32,900 for the Classic trim level, just $500 more than last year's model. The Signature Hardtop is a small step up at $33,900, while the Iconic sits at the top of the lineup with a $39,900 starting price. Prices exclude an $850 Destination & Handling fee.
Buyers who prefer more wind in their hair will pay a $6,000 premium for the JCW Convertible. Pricing for the Classic Convertible starts at $38,900, the Signature costs $40,650, and the Iconic trim is $44,900. Mini's unique soft-top design can open partially like a large sunroof or fully to provide an open cabin experience. The roof takes 18 seconds to open or close at speeds of up to 18.6 mph. Convertible buyers can even opt for a Union Jack graphic stitched into the soft-top.
Both models receive an updated adaptive suspension system with an additional valve to create more dampening force. A larger hexagonal radiator grille with wider side openings helps cool the engine and brakes. Finishing the exterior updates, Mini redesigned the diffuser and rear apron on the JCW models.
Whether you select the Hardtop or Convertible, the JCW models receive a specially-tuned suspension and a Brembo sports brake system. The four-piston brakes wrap around internally ventilated discs with red calipers bearing the John Cooper Works logo. 17-inch lightweight wheels come as standard, but larger 18-inch wheels are available too. Inside, the 2022 Mini Cooper models gain an 8.8-inch touch display with a redesigned infotainment system.
