Relaunched in 2002 by new owner BMW, the iconic British Mini brand traces its roots to 1959. New Minis retain a family resemblance to the brand’s original, influential front-wheel-drive cars. While Mini has since ventured into other classes, such as crossovers, the revived car started off as a two-door hatchback; convertible, coupe and four-door versions came later. First known as the Mini Cooper and later as the Hardtop, with “Cooper” used in trim-level names, Minis are characterized by sporty handling and a firm ride. Minis are known for their numerous personalization options and appearance packages.
Sun Lover vehicles have convertible tops or removable roofs. May require specific trim level and/or optional features.
