Mini One Convertible review onwards)

First impressions

has revised and broadened the Convertible just in time for summer Petrol versions have and punchier 1.6-litre engines, there’s a new 1.6-litre 98hp version too: the MINI One With a bold sub-£15k price, it’s the cheapest top MINI yet.

At first and with one proviso, it doesn’t or feel like it. MINI runs deep and the solid of the doors encloses you within a well built and classy The One has the same characterful design and of all MINIs, rounded off by the huge speedo.

There is a must-have, though; wheels. That’s because, as steel wheels are fitted, come with cheap-looking wheel trims. Really, it the sub-£15k open MINI is no thing.

Unless, that is, a good enough haggler to get for free.

Styling wise, the same as all MINI Convertibles, so has an fabric folding roof makes for a dark cabin it up, but gives a really open-deck when lowered. Frameless and a distant, upright windscreen add to the MINI Convertible lets of sunshine in!

MINI previously only the Convertible as a Cooper or Cooper S This is because the old 1.4-litre One have struggled with the body. But now all MINIs have to punchier 1.6-litre engines, reckons the One’s 98hp has enough urge to work in it.


Well, for the undemanding, yes. not really a huge amount of low down in the revs — you to get 2,500rpm showing for moderate There’s also not much in revving it to over 5,000rpm. takes 11.3 seconds, proving it’s not a rocket.

However, it really is entirely

In town, it lugs pretty at lower revs, too. You accelerate hard up hills, but the One is not overwhelmed by them, either. An sweet-shifting 6-speed gearbox you keep it on the boil as well.

like all BMWs, this is stiff when selecting

The engine is smooth and even mildly rorty. It has BMW-style technology so responds crisply and is if you ease off the gas. It is, however, noisy at higher revs.

As it do a lot over 5,000rpm anyway, better off changing up and accepting a will be faster.

Ride and handling

Up front, it’s a treat. It high-quality, while the firm are comfortable and the racy driving almost perfect. The 2-spoke steering wheel feels a bit but it’s the only real you’re in the cheapest open

Even on this car, air con is

It is a two-seater, though. Yes, it like there are rear But those in the back will negligible room, and an appalling out when the roof is up.

Best hand the back over to the wind deflector. This is successful at cutting wind at speed, meaning roof-down driving is completely viable.

Economy and safety

One reason for the One is better fuel economy. A gearbox cuts revs on a which means it’s of averaging 49.6mpg. That’s a result for a petrol drop-top, and it emits just 133g/km

Stop-start is, however, not fitted as

The MINI One Convertible means will be able to afford an MINI. It is not the fastest car around, but is and classy enough to be a great although the distinctive roof is down than up. Apart lacking alloys, equipment is and it’s very economical.

A sweet, honest price-leader impressed.
