So far the new MINI comes only in hardtop form. Thus, the last-generation convertible continues for a while longer. With its upright front windshield, compact bulldog stance and unique convertible top, which can be lowered fully or only partially to create a sunroof-like opening, the MINI Convertible makes al fresco driving fun and stylish. Front airbags and head-thorax side airbags are standard, as are traction control and extra-strength rollover bars.
