Car video reviews:

Body style: Convertible (spider/spyder, cabrio/cabriolet, drop/open/soft top)
Segment: Compact

Offering the same fun-to-drive character as the Mini Hardtop, the Convertible was a drop-top version equipped with a power-operated soft top.

The 2018 Mini Convertible offered seating for four and was available in 3 trim levels: base, Cooper S and the top of the range, John Cooper Works.

The base Mini was fitted with a 1.5-liter 3-cylinder unit mated with a 6-speed manual transmission or an optional automatic gearbox.

Included in the base trim level were a power-operated fabric convertible top, 15-inch alloys, automatic headlights, automatic wipers, a cooled glovebox, cruise control, vinyl upholstery, a rear-view camera, rear parking sensors, Bluetooth connectivity, a 6.5-inch display and a 6-speaker audio system.

For those looking for extra power, the Cooper S was equipped with a turbocharged 2.0-liter unit that developed 189 hp. Exterior updates included a hood scoop, central mounted dual exhaust tips, 16-inch alloys, LED fog lights and sport front seats.

A hotter turbo 4-cylinder engine that developed 228 hp came with the John Cooper Works trim level. Other features included 17-inch alloys, more effective Brembo brakes, a tweaked suspension, LED headlights, a sport steering wheel and several design updates such as an aerodynamic body kit and a rear spoiler.

Besides the goodies that came with the Convertible, the Mini’s practicality was reduced. The limited storage space in the cabin as well as the insufficient Caro area was a major drawback for those who enjoyed long journeys.
