What We Like

The vehicle comes with lots of standard equipment making it good value for the money. It is also practical and functional, especially when it comes to fuel economy. The convertible offers a smooth ride with leather seats and a nice audio system that includes SiriusXM radio. It is also easy to park, especially in small places that most cars would have to pass up.

What Concerns US

The Mini Cooper Convertible is not any larger than the base Mini Cooper, so passengers in the back may feel cramped while the top is up. Kids will even find the lack of legroom pretty annoying, especially for longer rides. Sitting next to other cars in traffic may also make you feel claustrophobic.

Available Models

The Convertible comes in a base, S, and John Cooper style options. Both manual and automatic transmissions are available on these models. The S and John Cooper models come with a turbo speed engine making it a little more fun to drive.

Common Issues
