Review

The Mini Convertible isn’t as rewarding to drive as its hatchback sibling, but its open-air exuberance makes up for that fact. You also get a terrific interior and sensible running costs, while strong residuals mean you can buy with your head as well as your heart.

get the best price

Exclusive trim costs the same as Sport, exchanging those racy looks for leather seats and chrome highlights, giving the car a more luxurious feel

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.
