Nearly a quarter of a century ago, a dealership in Kappelrodeck/Baden, Germany put a soft top on the classic fixed roof Mini, reinforced the side sills, and incorporated a crossmember to strengthen the body. The original Rover brand loved the Mini Convertible so much that they signed up for a series of 75, which swiftly sold to customers in the UK.
The Mini Convertible has morphed into several iterations since, including the latest generation with more space, a more luxurious feel and look, and impressive technology.
In the third generation 2016 MINI Convertible, the original crossmember has been replaced by a super strong steel body with steadfast rollover protection. Plus, the 2016 MINI Convertible gets a boost from BMW’s TwinPower Turbo BMW engines. The drop top’s closest players include the FIAT 500 and Volkswagen Beetle convertible.
