Revealed: 2016 Mini Convertible

Mini USA has introduced the newest addition to its product lineup, the MINI Convertible. The new Mini is based on BMW's front-drive family platform.

The Mini Convertible is  4.5 inches longer and 1.7 inches wider than the Cooper hardtop. There is 25 percent more cargo room, that allows more luggage in the back.

The new Mini offers a choice of 11 exterior color options, including Caribbean Aqua and Melting Silver. A 6.5 inch Mini Connected system is standard, but a 8.8 inch display with navigation is also available. The convertible will be offered with different drive modes, adaptive cruise control, a head-up display, collision mitigation, parking assistance, rearview camera, and much more.

The Mini Convertible is powered by BMW-developed new generation 1.5L inline three-cylinder engine that produces 134 hp and 162 lb-ft of torque. The Cooper S trim gets 189 hp and 207 lb-ft of torque. A six-speed automatic is optional, but both models come standard with a six-speed manual transmission.

Pricing for the new Convertible will be announced in January. The new Mini convertible will arrive at U.S. dealerships next March.
