The MINI Convertible is a premium convertible, which was first released in 2005. Offering a premium interior, efficient engines and distinctive styling, the MINI Convertible is one of the enduring models in the convertible vehicle class. It is available in three versions – Cooper, Cooper S and John Cooper Works – with the Cooper and Cooper S available in three trims: Classic, Sport and Exclusive.
The MINI Convertible comes with a fully automatic roof which can partly open while driving to form a sunroof. This, and its design inspiration from the original MINI, help it stand out as a desirable model in the marketplace. Through its great practicality and performance, the MINI Convertible is equally well-suited to city driving, cross-country or motorway adventures and trips with the family.
The MINI Convertible’s compact and stylish design makes it a competitor to similar convertibles, like the Fiat 500C, Mazda MX-5 and Volkswagen T-Roc Convertible. The MINI Convertible has also won Auto Express’ Convertible of the Year for consecutive years since 2018, marking it out as a class leader in this segment.
MINI Convertible updates and facelifts
The MINI Convertible was first launched in 2005 with a fully automatic roof and a drop-down tailgate reminiscent of the classic MINI. The roof was made from soft fabric, making it well-suited to summer drives, and boasted signature headlights and exterior design.
The second generation of the MINI Convertible launched in 2009, adding subtle changes to the exterior, including chrome-rimmed headlights and revised body panels.
The MINI Convertible Mk3 was released in 2016. It introduced further exterior enhancements, including new headlights and chrome rings, a new hexagonal front grille and a longer wheelbase. A new touchscreen infotainment system was added along with a refreshed choice of petrol and diesel engines.
The Mk3 received a mid-life facelift in 2018, adding LED head and taillights, new alloy wheels and puddle lighting. It received another light facelift in 2021, which introduced a new colour and some internal style tweaks too.
An all-electric MINI Convertible was unveiled in 2022, with only 999 entering production – 150 of which were available in the UK. This model borrows much of the same styling and design, adding an electric motor to power the car.
Practicality and style of the car
The MINI Convertible has grown in size since its first iteration. The model has a length of 3876mm, a width of 1727mm and a height of 1,415mm. This makes it 305mm longer and 100mm taller than the Fiat 500C.
The extra length given to the MINI Convertible Mk3 means it has plenty of useful storage space, including 215 litres in the boot – more than the Fiat 500C’s 182 litres and Mazda MX-5’s 130 litres. With the roof stowed, the MINI Convertible’s boot offers 160 litres of space. Thanks to its split 50:50 rear seats, you can increase boot space to 433 litres in three-seater configuration or fold down both rear seats to expand the luggage space to a full 661 litres in two-seater mode.
On the road, you’ll find plenty of comfort in the front two seats, with the rear passenger seats better suited to children. There’s reasonable head and legroom to be found as well, which helps you stay comfortable on longer distances.
The MINI Convertible’s running costs are reasonable, with its insurance group ranging from 16 to 33, which is typical when compared to the Mazda MX-5’s range of 23 to 31. Its annual road tax runs to a maximum of £180 a year – less than the Mazda MX-5’s maximum of £320.
