MINI brand continues apace with the launch of the all-new MINI Convertible. The new generation MINI Convertible is 3,850mm long. All models are 1,727 mm wide, 1,415 mm high and have a wheelbase of 2,495 mm. There is an increase in the dimensions of the convertible and this has enhanced comfort levels and freedom of movement in all four seats. The two front seats have a wider range of adjustment, while rear passengers benefit from easier access, more headroom, a longer seat surface and improved lateral support. The luggage volume has expanded by around 25per cent to 215litres with the roof closed and 160 litres with it folded down.

The Mini Convertible will be launched in 1.5-litre three-cylinder diesel engine and the other is the 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine. These produce 116bhp and 192bhp of power respectively. The MINI Driving Modes enable individual vehicle set-up by means of a rotary switch at the base of the gear lever. In addition to the standard MID mode, there is a choice of SPORT and GREEN. This is the same feature we had seen on the Mini Cooper 3-door and 5-door as well. The power is transferred to the front wheels through a six-speed automatic transmission.

The increase in wheelbase and track width over the outgoing model has provided an ideal starting point for the driving dynamics of the all-new MINI Convertible. MINI’s suite of driver assistance systems like park distance control (PDC) with rear sensors and rear view camera as standard, and front sensors as an option. Parking Assistant is also available as an option.
