If there's one thing guaranteed to make a popular car more popular still, lopping off its roof is a sure fire bet. Unlike the old Mini which had a pram like contraption it called a roof this new model gets a two-stage work of engineering art. And if you don't fancy the full convertible mode, then it can be partially retracted at the touch of a button.

A range of new colours are available and there's more scope to customise the interior than before.
