2018 MINI Convertible review: Our expert's take


What it is: As the name implies, the Mini Convertible is a droptop version of the Mini Hardtop. It competes with the Audi A3 cabriolet, Fiat 500c and Volkswagen Beetle convertible.


All Minis now have a standard backup camera and rear parking sensors.

Fun in the dun

Fun to drive. Handles the road with lots of power and great gas mileage. Trunk space is ok, but you have to be a good packer Good interior room for a small convertible .
