Passenger & boot space

How it copes with people and clutter

Look behind you and you’ll see only two seats in the back. Space for those passengers is limited, too; the rear section of the fabric roof slopes down and reduces head room, while knee room is also restricted. There aren’t even any cupholders for your hemmed-in passengers. At least adults will actually fit back there, though; the Mini Convertible will struggle to accommodate anyone with, well, legs. Although there are only two doors, they open quite wide to make getting in the back easy, and the sliding front seats provide extra convenience. 

In place of the regular T-Roc’s practical tailgate, the Cabriolet’s boot has a small lid that hinges upwards to reveal a narrow opening. There’s a high load lip and, with the wheel arches intruding noticeably, the boot grows narrower the farther in you go. In fact, it loses 161 litres of space over the regular model, leaving a total of 284 litres. Even the Mini Convertible offers 215 litres of space, and that’s a small car, not an SUV. At least the rear seats fold 50/50 if you do want to attempt to carry anything longer.
