Mini says it has taken its modern, classic convertible and given it lots of little tweaks and refinements that add up to something extra special.
The Mini Convertible’s characteristic headlights have been updated. Its new LED headlights come with optional Matrix technology for bright high beam driving. And things get even smarter with the inclusion of a rear-view mirror camera, which controls the headlights automatically when it detects oncoming traffic.
Along with these smart new additions, they have also quietly updated the basics. These changes include a multi-function steering wheel and Head-Up Display.
A press release from Mini in relation to the convertible reads: “Enjoy pioneering technology from inside or outside your Mini, from real time traffic information and a personal ‘Concierge Service’ to advanced remote control functionality that helps you locate your Mini using your smartphone. Oh, and did we mention that this Mini has Apple CarPlay, which lets you display your iPhone’s interface when you play music and take calls?”
Mini boasts that the latest convertible stands out in all the right ways. It tells us that the electrically-powered soft top folds up quietly and smoothly in 18 seconds flat, even while your Mini’s on the move at up to 18mph. As well as folding up or down, you can also opt for sunroof mode, which lets the breeze in.
To mark 25 years since the first launch of the Mini Convertible, manufacturers have created 300 limited edition, automatic Cooper S models. These feature all the refinements of the updated 2018 MINI Convertible, plus a unique combination of ‘starlight blue’ paint and ‘satellite grey’ leather interior that you will not find on any other Mini.
