Ownership cost

What used Mini Convertible sports will I get for my budget?

An early 2016 Cooper model with the 1.5 petrol engine starts at around £11,000 for something with lots of miles on it, while lower mileage examples ones start at £12,000. The more sprightly Cooper S is more expensive again, with prices starting at £14,500, while the JCW range-topper is the most expensive Mini Convertible you can buy at £17,000 for something that doesn't have a history of accident damage or high mileage.

How much does it cost to run a Mini Convertible sports?

MPG

Fuel economy and road tax costs for most Mini Convertible models are actually rather good. The 1.5 petrol has a combined figure of 57.6mpg, while the 1.5 diesel has a figure of 70.6mpg.

The Cooper S and JCW versions aren’t quite so cheap to run. The Cooper S has an average figure of 47.1mpg, while the JCW is rated to do 43.5mpg - less if you drive it with gusto.

CO2 emissions

The Mini with the lowest CO2 output is the 1.5 diesel with 100g/km, which sneaks it into the free car tax band. Up next is the 1.5 petrol with 114g/km, followed by the 2.0 Cooper S with 139g/km. The JCW is the worst, but 152g/km isn't particularly bad compared with some rivals.

Car tax (VED)

Road tax for all models registered before 1 April 2017 will vary depending upon the emissions the engine produces (see above paragraph), while examples registered after this date will have the same flat rate fee for cars that cost less than £40,000 when new.

Insurance and servicing costs

Insurance rates for most versions will be reasonable, although the Cooper S and JCW models will be more costly. Some cars less than three years old may still have some services left under the Mini TLC servicing package that new owners could buy with the car. After three years, Mini has a fixed-price value service scheme with prices that are published on their website.
