CARS.COM — The Mini Cooper S Convertible is a small car that makes a big case for the idea that less is more — in this case, less size and less roof. Redesigned for the 2016 model year, the 'vert variant of the Cooper S gives you all the sporty style and performance of the diminutive two-door hardtop, while opening occupants up to the outdoors in a way other droptops don't.

Thanks to a forward-positioned windshield, the driver and passengers get unobstructed exposure to the air and sunshine as they scoot around town in this zippy, agile sports car. If you want to enjoy the open-air experience, but maybe not quite that open, there's also a sunroof feature than dials it down considerably.
Inside our test car were a multifunction leather sport steering wheel, leather-covered sport seats with adjustable thigh support, an interactive LED center instrument ring and a 6.5-inch display screen. Optioned as such, the model we drove totaled $38,300, including an $850 destination charge.
