THE new Mini Convertible Sidewalk will be available worldwide from March 2020 and presents a particularly exclusive opportunity to enjoy driving pleasure without a fixed roof over your head. With its individual design and equipment features, the new Mini offers ideal conditions for making an extroverted appearance in urban traffic. There are three engine versions for the edition model of the open-top premium small car.

Variants of the exterior paintwork, soft top design, rim styling and interior fittings developed especially for the edition model, as well as numerous specific design accents, give the new model its unmistakable charisma. An edition model of the same name of the first open-top generation already heightened open-top driving fun considerably. The direct predecessor of the current open-top four-seater, the MINI Convertible Highgate, also ranks among the top model highlights of the British premium brand.

The drive range for the new Sidewalk is made up of three petrol engines with TwinPower Turbo technology. The new Mini One Convertible Sidewalk (combined fuel consumption: 5.5 – 5.4 l/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 125 – 122 g/km) generates an output of 75 kW/102 hp from the 1.5 litre 3-cylinder engine. The new Mini Cooper Convertible Sidewalk (combined fuel consumption: 5.4 – 5.1 l/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 123 – 116 g/km) is also powered by a 1.5 litre 3-cylinder engine which produces 100 kW/136 hp of power. The 141 kW/192 hp 4-cylinder engine of the new Mini Cooper S Convertible Sidewalk provides the sportiest fresh air experience (fuel consumption combined: 6.5 – 5.4 l/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 147 – 123 g/km.

All engines are combined with a 6-speed manual gearbox as standard. A 7-speed Steptronic transmission with double clutch is optionally available for the new Cooper and the Cooper S. Alternatively, the new Cooper S Convertible can also be equipped with a 7-speed Steptronic Sport transmission with double clutch, which provides even faster gear shifts and can also be operated using paddles on the steering wheel. As a further addition to the standard equipment, a wide range of options is available for all engine variants of the edition model to provide extra comfort, driving fun and spontaneous open-air pleasure.
