2020 MINI Convertible Review

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

What Is the 2020 Mini Cooper?

The Mini Hardtop and Convertible are fun-to-drive small cars with a reputation for agility and parkability. The hatchback seats up to five, and the convertible has room for four. The base 134-horsepower, turbocharged 1.5-liter three-cylinder engine pairs with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. A turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder rated at 189 or 228 hp paired with either the dual-clutch transmission or an eight-speed automatic is available. Competitors include the Volkswagen Golf GTI and Hyundai Veloster

What’s New on the 2020 Mini Cooper?

Manual-equipped models may be difficult to find this year as their availability was limited by a production delay.

What Features in the 2020 Mini Cooper Are Most Important?

No matter which engine or body style you choose, these Minis deliver sharp handling and an engaging driving experience. The performance-oriented John Cooper Works trim, in particular, is a blast to drive.

Standard features include a 6.5-inch multimedia screen, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and heated front seats. Available features include a panoramic moonroof, dual-zone automatic air conditioning, leather upholstery, navigation and Apple CarPlay smartphone connectivity. Android Auto isn’t offered, however. 

Should I Buy the 2020 Mini Cooper?

If you travel light — both in terms of luggage and passengers — the Mini Hardtop and Convertible are certainly worth consideration. People who love to drive will enjoy the cars’ responsive handling and direct steering, and a range of options makes them highly customizable. The interior also features quality materials and quirky touches, like toggle controls at the base of the dashboard.

My Mini

by GC from Lewes, DE on May 26, 2020

What a cutie! I found the car very stylish. Love easy of how it handles and the way the convertible top operates. The car has a lot of zip on the highway and kept up with the big boys. Read full review

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
