2019 MINI Convertible review: Our expert's take

Mini is giving a light once-over to 2019 models of its two-door and four-door hardtops and the convertible. They’re expected to hit dealerships in spring 2018.

The new Minis get new details that add some fresh fun, as well as design accents, technology upgrades and a couple of more Union Jacks to remind folks of the BMW-owned brand’s British heritage. The cars are competing in an ever more SUV-centric marketplace where the bigger Mini Countryman gets a lot of the attention.

Exterior

The car’s LED taillights light up in a Union Jack pattern, and the British flag pattern is available on the roof of the convertible, too. Other updates start with a new, simplified look to the Mini logo, and now you can have the car project the new logo on the ground, as well. The signature round headlights remain, but with a new black-accent look for the standard halogen lights and a lighted ring around the optional LED lights. There also are three new paint colors and new optional alloy wheel designs. A new piano-black trim package replaces chrome trim with shiny black accents.

Mini’s extensive personalization choices now include one that can literally make it all about you. The Mini Yours Customised (yes, Mini uses the British spelling) program lets owners order trim pieces — including front fender trim, interior trim and LED door sills — in a choice of colors and patterns in icons, as well as with their own name or other text. The pieces are produced with various 3-D printing methods and laser engraving.

Interior

There’s also a piano-black package for the interior that includes a backlit black panel on the passenger side of the dash that lights up in the various ambient lighting colors with (you guessed it!) a stylized version of the British Union Jack. Black also trims the doors and console. The hardtops also add a new brown leather option to the selection of interior coverings and colors.

Technology

The standard display is a new 6.5-inch screen, and a new 8.8-inch touchscreen with navigation and a new user interface and features is optional. Also newly optional will be wireless phone charging integrated into the center console; a second USB port has been added to the front of the console with wireless charging. The latest Mini Connected services using a SIM card in the car include 4G connectivity, remote services, and real-time traffic and emergency notification. There’s also support for Apple CarPlay.

A novel new service called Mini Find Mate is also available, allowing users to attach tags to personal objects such as keys, backpacks or luggage, and their location can be displayed on the car screen or in the Mini Connected app on a smartphone.

Fulfills the brand promise of fun and distinction

i figured this nimble convertible would be fun, and it is, but it is also reliable. 72k miles, virtually nothing but regular maintenance to date. I love driving it, as evidenced by my mileage. Radio, A/C and instruments are very good. my overall experience has been great. shortcomings: blind spot with top down. car chugs and lurches if you engage it withot counting to 10 when starting. dealer says no fix available. upright windshield shows a lot of tiny stars.

Mini Convertible JCW - Rocket!

I wanted something fun and sporty, yet fuel efficient, for my commuter car. Wow! This car is a blast to drive! I'm 6'3", and I fit just fine with plenty of head and leg-room. It is snug with the performance seats, but you soon get used to that, and it makes taking corners fun. Sport-mode shoots you off the mark. The car has all the tech features you want and the convertible top makes your kids through up their hands. I love it!

Love my Mini

Best car I've ever had so far. Stylish, reliable, great performance, comfortable and safe! It has great features, and I love driving around with the top down on a nice day!
