For The Mini Cooper Convertible provides all the open-top driving thrills you could ask for, while residual values are exceptional.

Against The ride is firm, especially in the JCW, and it's not as sharp to drive as the hatchback. The rear seats are pretty useless.

The Mini Convertible has all the desirability and fun of the hatchback, but with the thrills of open-top driving as well.

Buyer's notes

Target Price team says:

Compared with the other models in the Mini range, there's a more limited number of Mini convertible versions on sale. However, whereas we prefer the quicker versions of the hatchback, we reckon you can make do with one of the less powerful convertibles. With a soft-top, it's less about sheer driving thrills, and more about the style and the wind in the hair.

Whichever you buy, though, consider taking out one of the two very worthwhile low-cost fixed-price servicing packages: tlc and tlc xl. The £150 tlc covers you for a first service visit (oil service and micro-filter), brake fluid service at two years and a second service visit - oil service, micro-filter, vehicle check, spark plugs and air filter. tlc XL, meanwhile, costs £380 and covers a further brake fluid service, plus a third and fourth service visits.
