Mini, a division of BMW, is offering HD Radio as a factory option in its 2007 Cooper and Cooper S hardtops.
The HD Radios will be multicast-capable. They can be ordered as a stand-alone option for a list price of $500 or as part of Mini’s Audio Package that also includes an upgraded Hi-Fi radio and Sirius Satellite Radio with a lifetime subscription that stays with the car from owner to owner. This package retails for $1,400.
With this announcement, Mini joins BMW, Hyundai and Jaguar as automotive brands that have announced HD Radio commitments for 2007.
