MINI Convertible Performance
The MINI Convertible comes with a 1.5-liter turbocharged 3-cylinder engine with rapid acceleration. It makes 134 horsepower and 162 lb-ft of torque, which is shuttled to the front wheels through a 6-speed manual transmission.
A 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission is available as well. There’s also an available 2.0-liter turbo-4 that produces 189 horsepower and 206 lb-ft of torque.
Whether driving on tight city streets or long highways, the MINI Convertible is smooth and comfortable, easily absorbing road imperfections with its exceptional suspension. It comes standard with three selectable driving modes—Sport, Green, and Mid—to adjust the driving experience.
The short wheelbase makes it highly maneuverable, and it’s backed by precise, reliable steering. With the turbo 3-cylinder, the MINI Convertible gets an EPA-estimated 28 city/36 highway/31 combined MPG.
MINI Convertible Interior
The MINI Convertible is designed to be compact, but it maximizes its interior space. Two adults can fit comfortably in the front and rear seats, especially with the top down. The interior materials are durable and refined, especially in the luxurious models.
You can enhance the interior comfort with features like Dual-Zone Automatic Climate Control, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and premium upholstery. Among the most attractive interior features are the Union Jack accents that give the cabin character and interest.
For cargo space, the MINI Convertible has a 5.7-cubic-foot trunk, which also stores the foldable soft top. This is enough space for small luggage and a few shopping bags. There are also small storage areas within the cabin for personal belongings like cell phones, keys, and wallets.
MINI Convertible Technology
The base MINI Convertible comes with a 6.5-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay™, alloy wheels, high-quality cloth upholstery, and the attractive Union Jack LED taillights. LED fog lights and headlights, larger wheels, upgraded infotainment, leather upholstery, and unique interior accents are available throughout the trim levels. You can add a power convertible roof as well.
The MINI Convertible also includes many safety features as standard.
