The Convertible still gets a fabric soft-top, which can automatically open or close with just a click of a button on the key-fob or interior switch. The entire process takes 18 seconds and can be done with the car in motion at speeds up to 29 km/h.

It will be available with 2 petrol and 1 diesel engine options. The TwinPower Turbo petrol motors include a 2.0 litre, 4-cylinder unit producing 189 BHP and a 1.5 litre, 3-cylinder unit producing 134 BHP. The diesel is powered by a 1.5 litre, 3-cylinder motor which produces 114 BHP. Internationally, these will be available with a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters.

This new Mini has got a more rigid frame and an invisible roll bar to improve safety, better acoustics and sportier driving dynamics.
