Traditionally, this has been a weak point for Mini, as with the previous models you often needed to shell out at least a couple of grand to get a car that felt like it had the spec list to match the premium image. That does seem to be changing a little, though, with every version of this car coming with air-conditioning, Bluetooth, reversing sensors, DAB radio, and a parking camera. Still, climate and cruise control, heated seats, a multi-function steering wheel, sat-nav are all extra. The Cooper S has a more generous amount of kit, with the larger media screen, cruise control, and bigger alloy wheels. The most effective way to add extra equipment is to pick one of the packs available, which bundle lots of desirable gadgets together. The Chili pack is very popular, and the Media pack is also worth considering, but both cost a fair amount, and while they save you money versus picking the options separately, it would be nice if the brand was a little more generous in the first place, particularly on the pricier models.
