Equipment Updates By Model
 
MINI Hardtop (2 door and 4 door):
 
Power and Style Meets Efficiency
Our 2016 Cooper Hardtop will now be categorized as a SULEV, super ultra-low emitting vehicle, thanks to technical updates to the three-cylinder engine.  The previous engine was a categorized as a ULEV, or ultra-low emitting vehicle.  Although cleaner, this update does not impact the vehicle’s performance. 
 
Package and Option Changes
Our Hardtop’s Sport Package will include dynamic damper control, allowing owners to adjust their MINI suspension from a comfortable city drive to track-ready in seconds. 
 
In several locations vehicle trim previously painted in silver will instead be finished in a premium high gloss Piano Black, including the standard grill on the Cooper models.
 
We have also removed the Loaded Package and Visual Boost package from our Hardtop models.
 
Under the Hood
All 2016 Hardtops feature our TwinPower Turbo engines to deliver maximum performance.

Countryman and Paceman:
 
Equipment, Package and Option Changes
 
Light Coffee paint is discontinued.  We’re updating our Fully Loaded package for the Countryman and Paceman, and offering it for JCW models for the first time.
 
We have also removed the City, Technology and Loaded Packages from our Countryman and Paceman.
 
Countryman Park Lane:
We’re very excited about the new special edition Park Lane package for the Countryman.  We developed two new colors to create the Countryman Park Lane, an Earl Gray metallic exterior contrasted by our new Oak Red roof and mirror caps.
 
The Oak Red is inspired by the red oak trees adjacent to Park Lane in London and will also be used for the side scuttle inlays, the optional sport stripes, and other special trim throughout the car. It’s even incorporated in Park Lane emblems above the front wheel arches, on the door sills and on the dash.
 
Inside, door bezels and dash surfaces are in a bright and contemporary Oxide Silver. The center console is adorned in a special trim called Cross Stripe Gray, which overlaps Oak Red and Earl Gray threadlike lines.
 
This limited edition package is priced at $2,500 for the Cooper and Cooper S, and $2,000 for Cooper S ALL4 because of the ALL4’s existing exterior styling.
