F57 Mini Convertible: Bigger, faster, very similar looking

You could never accuse Mini of being too radical with its styling. The new Mini convertible has new underpinnings and engines under its evolutionary body.

At launch there will be three engines: 100kW/136hp a 1.5-liter gas turbo I3 (Cooper), 141kW/192hp 2-liter gas turbo I4 (Cooper S), and 85kW/116hp 1.5-liter turbo-diesel I3 (Cooper D). Each is available with either a 6-speed manual or 6-speed automatic.

The electric fabric hood raises and lowers in 18 seconds, and the new cabrio, based on the UKL architecture shared with the BMW X1 and 2 Series Active Tourer, seats four people.
