BMW’s small car brand has revealed pricing for its updated 3-Door Hatch, 5-Door Hatch and Convertible lines, including the three-door Mini Electric.

The updated range is due here by June 2021.

Prices range from $37,500 before on-road costs for the Cooper 3-Door Hatch Classic to $67,880 before on-roads for the John Cooper Works Convertible Mini Yours.

Cooper, Cooper S, Cooper SE (Electric) and John Cooper Works models are available in a selection of trim levels.

The base Classic and highest-spec Mini Yours packages are available across all four grades, with Cooper S models offering a JCW Sport package, Cooper models offering a Classic Plus package, and John Cooper Works models offering an Essential package.

All up, there are 11 3-Door Hatch variants to choose from, six 5-Door Hatch models, and nine Convertible variants.

The front bumper has received some minor cosmetic tweaks, while inside the centre stack has received a minor update with piano black trim.

The 8.8-inch touchscreen infotainment system also includes touch-sensitive shortcut buttons, as well as updated graphics on the screen itself.

There’s a new, leather-wrapped steering wheel across all models, while the Mini Electric’s 5.5-inch digital instrument cluster is now standard across the range.

Piano Black trim is now used on the Cooper S and John Cooper Works models’ door handles, fuel cap, and badging, with darkened lighting assemblies to match.

There are also three new wheel designs and three new colours: Rooftop Grey, Island Blue, and Zesty Yellow, the latter exclusive to the Convertible.
