The New 2016 MINI Cabriolet
|   Monday, November 02, 2015
The new MINI Convertible is incoming with increased dimensions for extra comfort and ergonomics. It is an emotional model, with a design to match, but it still retains a sporty image.

In the spirit of the brand, the model retains the typical proportions with heavily sculpted areas and a dynamic elongated silhouette, offering an updated interpretation for the brand's classic elements of design: round headlights and taillights with chrome contours, hexagonal radiator grille or the stanchions in black.
The new model comes with a wide selection of body colors, including the hue Caribbean Aqua Metallic - presented for the first time with this model.

The textile soft top is provided with a fully automatic mechanism for opening/closing and the sliding roof function. For the first time, the new operation mechanism is fully electric and hence very quiet. Another novelty is the MINI Yours soft top with woven Union Jack graphics. Opening and closing the roof and the side windows is done in 18 seconds and is possible while driving at speeds up to 30 km / h. In an overturning incident, the protection is integrated inside without being visible, and will expand automatically when needed.

The new MINI Convertible comes with increased dimensions for a plus of comfort and ergonomics: +98 millimeters in length, +44 mm in width and +7 mm in height; longer gauge (+28 mm); greater wheelbase width (+42 mm front, +34 mm rear). The model comes with new front seats with greater range of adjustment, more comfortable access and longer seat surface for rear passengers; the individual rear seats with optimized lateral support offer improved comfort.
Luggage capacity has been expanded by approximately 25 percent to 215 liters with the roof closed and 160 liters with the roof open. Standard equipment includes rear seatbacks with divided folding, extended loading facility and Easy Load function.

The modern concept of display and operation of the car includes having the instrument panel on the steering column, a central tool with new functions, display (optional) with LED lights, and red centrally disposed start/stop button in the bar switches from the lower section of the center console.
The wide range of MINIMALISM technology as standard ensures optimized fuel consumption. Optionally, the MINI Driving Modes system can offer three drive configurations: Sport, Mid and Green.

Market launch of the new MINI Convertible is ready for next year with three engine variants (mixed average fuel consumption: 6.0 to 3.8 l / 100 km, CO2 emissions: 139-100 g / km). The new generation of engines with MINI TwinPower Turbo Technology sees a petrol engine with three cylinders that develops 100 kW / 136 hp on the MINI Cooper Convertible; a petrol engine with four cylinders rated at 141 kW / 192 hp on the MINI Cooper S Convertible; a three-cylinder diesel unit with 85 kW / 116 hp for the MINI Cooper D Convertible.

The transfer of power is done to the front wheels. Six-speed manual transmission comes as standard, while optionally for all models the Steptronic six-speed transmission is provided.
