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.

Trim: John Cooper Works

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.

Engine: 2.0 JCW II

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.
