As MINI says, “Surfers don't wear a helmet. Rock fans don't wear ear plugs. And MINI Convertible drivers don't need a roof."
In any MINI Convertible, you'll be able to feel the rush of the elements and the thrill of legendary go-kart handling.
But don't worry – if the elements in the UK are a bit too much, you always have the ability to put the roof up.
The new MINI Convertible can be discovered in more detail and taken for a test drive at Jardine Motors Group retailers across the UK today.
The MINI Convertible’s standard equipment includes pop-up roll-over bars which have been redesigned so they don’t restrict rear visibility, an Electronic Stability Programme, and six airbags, putting your mind at rest over safety concerns.
Electronic systems, including ABS, EBD and traction control are also standard on some models, as are Cornering Brake Control and Electronic Differential Lock Control.
Every bit the high-octane drive, the MINI Convertible has the looks to match its heart-racing performance.While the standard Convertible is well-designed, elegant and feline, there's no mistaking the masculine muscle packed by the JCW version. Featuring bespoke black JCW grilles, front and rear bumpers and side skirts, the Convertible JCW means business. Sporty red brake callipers hide behind its set of 17-inch cross-spoke alloys, emblazoned with JCW livery, while a no-nonsense pair of bore tailpipes poke out of the middle of the rear bumper.Crammed with MINI's trademark retro charm, the interior is an attractive fusion of design and functionality. Choose from a great variety of trims, such as the JCW selection which includes shiny Piano Black surfaces along the dash, and sporty red graphics on the gear knob.
Offering 211bhp, it comes as no surprise that the MINI Convertible JCW’s acceleration is a real strength, with the car taking only 6.9 seconds to hit 62mph.
The Convertible JCW also features a satisfyingly throaty exhaust note, which pops and crackles under deceleration. A sport button produces turbo boost earlier in the rev range, improving the throttle and steering response.
The MINI Convertible One offers a CD player – with the all-important AUX input – plus electric windows and central locking. Salt and Pepper option packs are available on the One to add more technology. The JCW adds air conditioning to the list of in-car technology, too.
