All 2018 MINI models are getting an update including a standard rearview camera and Rear Park Distance Control.
Now that rearview camera and rear PDC are standard, MINI says the Technology Package will now include Front and Rear PDC with Parallel Parking Assistant, which was previously a $500 additional upgrade.
There’s also a slight change in the paint pricing structure across all models, with MINI employing the same structure first introduced with the new Countryman. That means Moonwalk Grey will be a “no charge” paint color, while the John Cooper Works Rebel Green and MINI Yours Lapisluxury Blue will be an additional $1,000. All other paint colors are available as a $500 upgrade.

Other minor changes heading to all models include the optional Head-Up Display system’s on/off control moving to the center screen, while going forward, the toggle switch to the farthest right will be used to select the vehicle’s driving mode, if equipped with 4VA. That toggle switch replaces the previous ring-style selector at the base of the gearshift lever. The fuel gauge has also been redesigned for all models, while new windshield wiper and turn signal stalks, which stay in position rather than immediately returning to center, will be adopted by all models.

2018 MINI Clubman
For the 2018 MINI Clubman, the British automaker said from July production onward, Apple CarPlay support will be included in the Technology Package. That means 2018 John Cooper Works Countryman ALL4 and Cooper S E Countryman ALL4 vehicles produced from March 2017 through the end of June 2017 will not support Apple CarPlay. Also, like the MINI Hardtop 4 Door, the metal inlays from the rear door sills have been deleted. Attentiveness Assistant is now included as a standard feature.
Pricing for the 2018 MINI Clubman starts from $25,650. Adding all-wheel drive with the ALL4 model will cost $1,850 additional on both the standard Cooper Clubman and Cooper S Clubman models. The Cooper S Clubman starts at $29,300. At the top of the range is the John Cooper Works Clubman ALL4, with a $36,750 price tag.
2018 MINI Countryman
Like the 2018 MINI Clubman, all Countryman updates produced from July onward will get Apple CarPlay support as part of the Technology Package. In addition, the Convenience Package on the 2018 MINI Countryman no longer includes an elastic strap on the left side of the cargo area. Instead, it will include an elastic strap on the right side of the cargo area. The 2018 MINI Countryman also receives standard Attentiveness Assistant.
The 2018 MINI Countryman has a starting price of $27,450, with the Cooper S Clubman priced from $32,050.

2018 MINI Convertible
Lastly, the 2018 MINI Cooper Convertible version will no longer be available with a compact spare wheel and tire.
