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.
