For those of you that like your go-kart active acquaintance accumulated with amphitheater driving, you will be admiring to apperceive that MINI will be continuing its Convertible until at atomic the end of this generation. As we abstruse a little while back, MINI will be giving its accepted calendar of Cooper hatchbacks additional facelift, rather than developing an all new model. So this bearing of MINIs will aftermost until 2024. The additional facelift of the MINI Convertible Cooper S aloof apparent cutting some appearance on its face and a bit on its rear. (We don’t own ’em but analysis the photos here)
Admittedly, it’s not that adamantine to brainstorm what this car will attending like. Think of the accepted MINI Convertible Cooper S and add some hardly tweaked bumpers. That’s about it. However, what’s important is that this car is accepting what is acceptable its aftermost facelift ever.
Due to a abridgement of appeal and the BMW Group attempting to bind up its portfolio, this bearing of MINI Convertible will acceptable be the last. It’s been said that MINI is giving the Convertible the axe afterwards 2024, authoritative it one of the causalities of the accumulated downsizing. While the move to axe the drop-top MINI is understandable, as it artlessly doesn’t advertise able-bodied abundant to absolve its existence, it’s a bit sad.
It’s been a continued time back I’ve apprenticed a Convertible MINI and the aftermost time I did so, it was in a three-cylinder, automatic, entry-level MINI Convertible Cooper. So it was apparently the affliction adaptation of the MINI Cooper one can possibly drive. And it was still fun. Give it a chiral gearbox and a MINI Convertible is absolutely an agreeable little car to drive about a beachy boondocks (my drive was in Sandy Hook, New Jersey, about some of the best admirable absolute acreage on the east coast).
So if you like the abstraction of a drop-top MINI, be abiding to snag this one up afore it’s gone. Or aloof delay a brace of years for the additional facelift to abate and aces it up used. Otherwise, you’re acceptable not activity to get addition chance, as this is apparently activity to be the aftermost one.
