The woven Union Jack soft-top, available from the MINI Yours customisation programme, echoes the long tradition of MINI and the British heritage of the brand. And if you fancy a bit of fresh air during the journey, just open the integrated sunroof which comes as standard. The easy-load function increases the boot opening space by lifting the retracted soft-top above the compartment hatch. When the top is closed, the luggage compartment has a generous capacity of 215l. The open tailgate can hold up to 80kg.
There’s also more than one MINI to drive away. Whether you go for the Cooper/D or Cooper S, each one has a different engine and its own feel behind the wheel. But whichever model you choose, they all have one thing in common: the power and efficiency of MINI Twin Power Turbo technology. All MINI models are fitted with a 6-speed manual gearbox as standard. A 6-speed Steptronic automatic transmission is available upon request for all models, whilst a 6-speed Steptronic sport gearbox with shift paddles on the steering wheel is also optionally available for Cooper S and John Cooper Works models.
With optional MINI Driving Modes, you can adapt the performance of your MINI to match your mood and the driving conditions. In the MID and GREEN modes, optional Variable Damper Control adjusts the suspension to keep the drive enjoyably smooth. But if you want to feel like you’re tearing up the tarmac in a go-kart, select the SPORT mode.
MINI Cooper ConvertibleThe 1.5L 3-cylinder engine in the MINI Cooper Convertible delivers the perfect blend of power and efficiency. Choose from a 116-hp/ 85-kW diesel version or a punchier 136-hp/100-kW petrol unit. The MINI Cooper Convertible hosts a high-gloss black safety bar, tailgate handle and radiator grille fins. The radiator grille and tailgate handle are also available in a Chrome finish upon request, as part of the Chrome Line Exterior option.
MINI Cooper S ConvertibleThe top-of-the-range 2.0L 4-cylinder petrol (192hp/141kW) engine delivers all the power you could need. Classic features include the Honeycomb structure radiator grille in black matt with chrome border, brake-cooling air intakes in the front bumper, air scoop in the bonnet, diffuser on the rear apron and central twin-pipe exhaust system.

Advanced Braking TechnologyAdvanced braking technology keeps you in complete control. Latest-generation anti-lock brakes allow you to stop quickly on slippery roads and Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD) distributes braking force between wheels to suit the driving conditions. Cornering Brake Control (CBC) improves stability on cornering at speed, while Brake Assist speeds up the process, minimising the braking distance.
MINI Connected App
Other highlights include controlling your GoPro from the centre console screen. The optional MINI Connected XL Journey Mate smartphone app helps you plan your next journey – before you’ve even left the house. Once you’re on the move, it sends you reminders, shows you traffic jams along your route, the weather at your destination and the duration of the journey. It’ll even direct you to the nearest parking spot or petrol station. And with the Glympse app, you can share your current location with friends.
Rain Warning Alert
Runflat TyresWith MINI’s optional Runflat tyres, a puncture won’t result in a blowout. Runflat technology allows you to keep driving on a flat tyre at speeds of up to 50 mph. The reinforced side walls are made of a heat-resistant rubber, while special rim geometry stops the pressure-less tyre from slipping off, even on bends. So you’ll be able to keep on driving to a place where you can change the tyre safely.
Start ButtonGlowing softly with red LEDs, the large Start button signals the beginning of a new adventure. Feel your MINI come alive with one small touch: the engine revs and you're ready to go.
Body-Hugging SeatsFeel in control wherever you’re sitting. Front sport seats come as standard, with a comfortable body-hugging shape. Choose from a range of trims, including Black Pearl cloth/Leatherette, Diamond cloth/leather, Cross Punch leather and Lounge leather.
Contrast Your ColourThe devil’s in the detail. So why not have your roof and exterior mirror caps in Aspen White, Jet Black or Body colour? Want to mix it up even more? Choose from a range of funky optional extras.
Body ColoursDo that sleek bodywork justice with a choice of Pepper White, Volcanic Orange or eight metallic colours: Moonwalk Grey, Blazing Red, Midnight Black, British Racing Green, Deep Blue, Thunder Grey, Melting Silver and White Silver.
Customisable InteriorStyled to perfection. You can customise your interior in more ways than you ever imagined. Tweak the finer details of your interior surfaces, the doors, the instrument panel and structural elements, along with the added options of Colour Line and Chrome Line.
SOS SystemIf the unfortunate happens, MINI is on hand to help. With the optional Emergency Call system, your MINI automatically sends a distress call to the BMW Group Call Centre with your position, direction of travel, and number of airbags activated. So help can arrive rapidly.
Rearview CameraThe rearview camera gives you a perfect view behind, and even adds helpful markings to the image to help you park. And Park Assist helps you find a space, then guides your MINI into tricky spots – without you even touching the steering wheel. Look, no hands.
Go With The GlowThe LED ring around the MINI Centre Instrument changes colour in response to different events. Like music volume, revving the engine, telephone calls and navigation prompts.
Satellite NavigationHoused in the MINI Centre Instrument, the cutting-edge MINI Navigation System keeps you right on track. For travel assistance from doorstep to destination, upgrade to MINI Connected XL Journey Mate. It’s a route planner, travel guide and calendar all rolled into one, and even informs you about traffic, weather and parking.
Genuinely first class customer service and beyond, post sales service/contact has been absolutely on point too. All in all, my buying experience felt like a purchase from a friend as opposed to a 'car dealership'. Great to be part of the Mini Club, definitely will head to Carlisle Mini for future Mini purchases even though it's a wee trek for me being Glasgow based. Major plaudits to Dylan Smith (Sales Dude with the funky tassel shoes!) and Manager Paul Temple and Service Manager Andrew Robinson x
