Mini helped pioneer the idea of offering an incredible list of personalisation options to help deliver a car that is truly individual.
Among the options is the firm’s Union Jack fabric roof design which is an eye-catching and impressive addition. When the roof is in place it has strong insulation for sound and warmth.
Drivers have the choice of a 1.5 litre petrol engine with three cylinders or 2.0 litre four-cylinder engine, both are turbocharged to deliver impressive levels of performance.
There’s also a 1.5 litre turbocharged diesel engine with three cylinders available. Fuel economy ranges from 46mpg for the 2.0litre petrol unit to 71 mpg for the Mini Cooper D convertible.
The new Mini convertible is packed with equipment and technology and it’s bound to be another sales success for the car maker.
