2021 MINI Convertible review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2021 Mini Cooper?

The front-wheel-drive 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 engine is a 134-horsepower, turbocharged 1.5-liter three-cylinder; a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder rated at 189 or 228 hp is available. A six-speed manual transmission is standard, and a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic or an eight-speed automatic are optional. Competitors include the Volkswagen Golf GTI and Hyundai Veloster

What’s New on the 2021 Mini Cooper?

A six-speed manual transmission is once again available for both the hatchback and convertible. A new digital instrument cluster is available, and a Sidewalk Edition convertible features unique colors, wheels, trim and badges.  

What Features in the 2021 Mini Cooper Are Most Important?

  • Sharp handling
  • Fun to drive
  • Distinctive looks and style
  • Apple CarPlay smartphone connectivity available
  • Navigation available
  • Leather seating available 

Should I Buy the 2021 Mini Cooper?

If you travel light — both in terms of luggage and other 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, such as toggle controls at the base of the dashboard.

Love to zip in the mini

This is such a fun car! It is great to drive and handles well. I have the convertible and it has been a delight to take family and friends around in the Mini. I feel like I'm in a movie as I drive a long - even when going to the grocery store!
