New color choices and equipment features add up to endless features for customization. The luxury materials and finishes improve the Mini Convertible - the only open-air vehicle in its class - even further.

The new Mini Convertible will make its worldwide debut in January at the 2009 North American International Auto Show in Detroit. Orders for the Mini Convertible are being taken now; the price tag for the Mini Cooper Convertible is $24550, and for the Mini Cooper S Cabrio $27450, including the $650 destination and handling charge. Delivery of the first Mini Convertibles will begin on March 28, 2009.

The new Mini Convertible's durable soft-top with integrated sliding roof function reliably protects driver and passengers from the components when it is up. Enabling for spontaneous open-air motoring, the soft top lowers automatically in 15 seconds flat, even when the vehicle is in motion up to 20 mph. The original Openometer next to the tachometer challenges the driver to log as many top-down miles as possible by recording the hours spent open-air motoring.
