The Mini Convertible offers all the great driving dynamics and desirable image of the hatch model, with added wind-in-the-hair funread the full model review
Cooper S features 16in alloy wheels, a bonnet scoop, sports seats and a multi-function leather steering wheel. Only available with the lower-powered 2.0-litre petrol engine.
Proper hot hatch pace from this 189bhp 2.0-litre motor, with the pop and crackle exhaust note to match. There is a bit of a surge as the turbo kicks in, though, and purchase and running costs are much higher than those for the equally fun Cooper. Available with a six-speed manual or seven-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox.
