2019 Mini Convertible Back in 2016, Mini debuted the third-generation Cooper Convertible, yet its changes were a lot more transformative than revolutionary. For 2018, this new-look Cooper Convertible tackled a slightly various name: Mini Convertible. Now, as we near the 2019 version year, Mini has actually revealed a series of upgrades that’ll make the Exchangeable feel and look just a bit various.
Aesthetically, the 2019 Mini Convertible will certainly keep all the general design signs of the current design, but there will certainly be small distinctions. Initially, the fronts lights will certainly be a little tweaked, as the halogen units will boast a new black accent and also new optional LED signature style. Around back, the LED taillights take on a Union Jack look. Also brand-new are the appearances of the light alloy wheels and also the logo design, plus it’ll boast new piano-black accents and also 3 new colors– Emerald Grey metallic, Starlight Blue metallic, and also Solaris Orange metal– and offered logo projectors on the side mirrors.
Inside, the Mini Convertible will also retain its standard styling. However it will certainly obtain a couple of new touches, consisting of new optional leather surfaces, piano black accents, a new basic 6.5-inch display screen with a maximized interface, typical Bluetooth connectivity, a brand-new optional 8.8-inch display with navigating and a brand-new user interface, as well as optional wireless charging.
The under-hood little bits will stay 100% unchanged in 2019, as the base engine will remain a 1.5-liter turbocharged three-cylinder engine with 134 horsepower and 162 pound-feet of torque. Go up to the Cooper S trim, and the engine expands to a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder with 189 hp and also 207 lb-ft of torque. Ultimately, the John Cooper Works design pushes the 2.0-liter engine to 228 hp as well as 236 lb-ft of torque.
The Mini Convertible really did not undergo its own IIHS testing, but its Hardtop brother or sister did. As a subcompact, the Mini Hardtop in fact does well in IIHS accident tests, as it obtained “Good” marks in all bang-up screening. Where it slipped was the front lights examination, where it gained a “Poor” rating, dropping it from opinion for a Top Security Select rating. With no adjustments to the headlight feature in the new year, do not look for these rankings to change.
There is no expected launch date for the 2019 Mini Convertible yet, but remain tuned for updates. With modifications being marginal, we don’t expect rates to go a lot greater than the 2018 Convertible’s MSRP variety, which is $28,800 to $38,950 (location charges included). The Mini Convertible’s competitors will consist of the Mazda MX-5 Miata and Fiat 124 Spider.
