Sporty Performance

All things sporty start with the push of the starter button, as tapping the ignition starts the 189-hp 2.0L 4-cylinder TwinPower turbocharged engine featuring direct injection and 207-lb.ft. of torque. When paired with the standard 6-speed Getrag manual transmission it has a short shift and silky smooth movement (an optional 6-speed sport automatic transmission with or without shifter paddles is available).

A Sport package includes 17-inch Propeller Spoke wheels, a more dynamic damper control, and LED fog and headlights.

Devilish Details

When you want to get a bit more peppy, toss the transmission into ‘Sport.’ You’ll know you’re there when the infotainment screen shows a rocket-powered, go-kart-minded MINI Cooper S Convertible on the screen. The supple-yet-firm suspension turns into a fine-tuned machine that you will enjoy tossing around corners or through straights. There are also Green and Mid modes in addition to Sport mode.

Connected Technology

When the 6.5-inch touchscreen isn’t showing the transmission modes it offers access to the 6-speaker audio system featuring HD radio for AM and FM bands (where available), AUX and USB inputs, and Bluetooth enabled infotainment options. Connect your Bluetooth-enabled device and listen to all your favorite apps!

A Navigation and technology package is optional and includes a rear-view camera, rear parking distance controls, MINI Connected XL system for the infotainment system and real-time traffic information for the navigation system (Wired Package).

Top-Down Delight

Unlike the hardtop version, the 2016 MINI Cooper S Convertible has a three position top. You can drive around with the top fully closed, snatch a glimpse of the skies above when your top is partially open, and have the skies to yourself by dropping the top in full.
