With MINI TwinPower Turbo engines, the all-new MINI Convertible gives you legendary handling paired with world-class performance engineering in a car that punches way above its weight.
A homage to our earliest rally-racing days, our race-inspired toggle switches make for indescribably, immensely satisfying controls.
The Convertible’s transmission offers especially smooth and precise shifting, while the Cooper S' optional Steptronic allows you to choose between the convenience of automatic and the thrill of manual shifting. Cooper S and John Cooper Works models are also available with optional steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters that let you maximize performance with a fluid flick of your finger.
If you're looking for even more motoring fun, just pop your MINI’s Sport Button. This standard feature adjusts various settings to provide even faster acceleration and tighter steering. If paired with an automatic transmission, it will even adjust your shift points for quicker gear changes. And on Cooper S and John Cooper Works models, the exhaust makes a distinctive "popping" sound during deceleration. We almost called it the 'yipeeeeeee!' button. But all the letters didn't fit.
Every Convertible blends refinement and a firm, European road feel from the moment you start the engine. But with our standard adjustable Driving Mode system, you can direct the technically sophisticated drivetrain to match your Motoring mood. Sport Mode will tighten your steering and adjust the throttle profile for a more aggressive, thrilling drive. For more fuel-efficient motoring, switch to Green Mode with optimized fuel delivery, tweaked shift points and a coasting feature that disengages an automatic transmission when your foot’s off the gas.
Brakes that will automatically ready themselves for an emergency stop when your foot suddenly leaves the gas, dry themselves in wet weather when your wipers are on, and actively work to reduce erratic driving.
With a MINI you can pick the color. Of the union jack flags. That are on those cap thingies that keep air in your tires. And if union jack’s not your style, valve stem caps come in checkered flags, silver, plain black and more. And that’s pretty much how it goes with everything. Whether it’s mirror caps, driving lamps, exhaust tips, side scuttles, door handles, door sills, roof racks, roof graphics, the gear shift knob, steering wheel or the kitchen sink, you can dial it in however much or little feels right.
To stripe or not to stripe – that is the question facing every MINI owner. Perhaps no other single item signifies a motorer’s personality so well. Not boxers or briefs, cats or dogs, or even republican or democrat. Of course, driving a MINI is a statement in itself. But stripes take it to the next level. They show the world you’re not afraid to take a bold stance. That you have a thirst for adventure. Or that you just like the slimming effect.
Standard on the Eclipse Spyder, the high-intensity discharge (HID) headlamps cut through the night to announce your arrival. Heading out? Give them a nice look at the Eclipse Spyder's clear-chrome tail lamps.
With so many wheel options to choose from – more than a dozen for some models – you can decide exactly how your MINI will roll. Just choose your color and style knowing that all of our wheels are built with performance in mind.
The Convertible’s well-appointed interior can be furnished with a variety of high-end upholstery options, such as Malt Brown Chesterfield Leather with diamond-pattern stitching.
Our fully-electric soft top is quiet, smooth, and opens in 18 seconds flat. And in sunroof mode, slides back to allow up to 16 inches of sunlight to pour on in. The roof also features a heated glass rear window, for good measure.
The Convertible seats four adults, and has folding rear seats with a cargo pass through to the boot. It can accommodate 5.7 cu.ft. with the roof down and 7.6 with it up. That's 25% more cargo space than the previous model.
MINI Connected comes standard in the Convertible and features a high-resolution 6.5” or optional 8.8” display, that’s designed to seamlessly integrate your technology into your MINI – from popular apps like Spotify® and Pandora®, to hardware like GoPro®, and more.^ Plus, it powers our own innovative tech, like Journey Mate, the ultimate trip-planner app that can coordinate your entire drive, integrating real-time traffic, weather, gas mileage, and even your calendar appointments. It will even alert you to gas stations when you need them and can help find parking in unfamiliar areas. (Note: Journey Mate only available on MINI models equipped with optional MINI Connected + Visual Boost XL and Navigation System.)
At MINI, our commitment to quality, durability and customer satisfaction is clearly demonstrated by the 4-year/50,000-mile MINI New Passenger Car Limited Warranty and a 12-year/unlimited-mileage warranty against rust perforation. And we're not just talking about a couple key parts of your MINI. Our warranty covers everything, bumper to bumper and everything in between, except the tires.
Inspired by jet cockpit technology, this optional retractable display puts essential motoring info – speed, nav instructions, stereo, and other alerts – closer to your line of sight.
The Dynamic Stability Control system uses sensors to measure the steering angle, yaw and lateral acceleration to determine the direction you want to go. Then, if your MINI starts to stray, the DSC system kicks in by applying corrective brake pressure to individual wheels and adjusting engine torque.
MacPherson struts in the front and highly-tuned, multi-link suspension in the rear that helps deliver world-renowned handling.
