New MINI Cooper Convertible Review
All the fun of the MINI Cooper, but with a drop top for when the sun is shining, if everyone had a MINI Cooper Convertible the world would be a much nicer place. The Oxford built MINI, so it would seem, can do no wrong. Even working twenty-four hours a day they can't keep up with demand, now there's a new, new MINI being rolled out in hard top form, with new convertibles expected soon, don't worry though, the Cooper Convertible in its MK I form is just as popular as ever, just try getting hold of a used one.
As with all convertibles derived from hard top siblings, the chassis needs major reinforcing, cardboard box┬? Blah! Lid┬? Blah! Cut off┬? Blah! Twist┬?Blah! Who cares!!! This may be a hundred Kilos heavier than the hatchback, but it handles just the same and the figures from 0 - 60 only differ by around half a second, if half a second means that much to you in the greater scheme of things get yourself a turbo toothbrush and leave the house half a second earlier. BMW have worked magic in keeping the overall MINI package just the same in either hard or soft-top derivative, something other manufacturers should take serious note of.
Point the wheels the way you want to go and the MINI delivers, the low down driving position makes you feel like you're part of the car and the wind blowing in your hair instantly puts a smile on your face. It may not have the punch of the Cooper S, but don't let that spoil your enjoyment, the MINI Cooper Convertible is an excellent small car built to a quality level that has come to be expected from BMW. It won't leave you feeling disappointed.
