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

As well as more power from the 2.0-litre engine, JCW gets bigger wheels, sports seats, sports suspension and more aggressive styling touches – bespoke to this trim – inside and out. It’s good fun, but we can’t help feeling the Cooper S achieves most of that for less money.

We have yet to drive the updated JCW with its more powerful 228bhp 2.0-litre engine, but the previous model delivered real hot hatch thrills. It is quite pricey, though.
