Ten Second Review
Mini Convertible Lease Review - Who doesn’t want to hit the road in a convertible? The wind in your hair, the feeling of utter freedom, the slightly envious looks from people as you drive by.
The convertible top is a nice fabric, and the whole top can be automatically raised or lowered from the inside of the cabin. The windshield is placed properly so that you’re not being beaten about by the wind as you drive down the highway. The convertible top also folds up nicely, without completely knocking out your view of the way behind you, but just in case, the Convertible Mini comes with a backup sensor as a standard feature and a backup camera as an option.
As with all of the Coopers, the design options are nearly endless. Daytime running lights and fog lights adorn the bumpers. Chrome touches give the Cooper a retro appeal and a shiny look.
The Mini Convertible Cooper does have a drawback – it’s just not that powerful under acceleration. The safety features that have been added on have added weight, but the 1.6L engine still only puts out 115 to 168 horsepower, depending on the model you choose. You’ll benefit from the rollover safety bar and high strength steel reinforcements if you ever need them. Plus, the handling has been improved and steering is quite responsive.
