I'm happy that even till this day they haven't cheaper out so much that we start to see features pulled from a BMW parts bin. A lot of brands have been guilty of that, Lexus and Toyota being a classic example.
Simplifying is a bit of a stretch I agree, as Mini is basically charging you extra to get a properly equipped car. In basic One Class trim with allow wheels and a navigation package, you're already looking at £18,000 ($23,560 U.S)There's thousands of dollars in options here, so these new trim levels aren't really of any greater value. They should have at least placed more standard kit on the higher end trims.
