This car has been superseded by a newer model, click here to go to the latest MINI Convertible review.

Parkers overall rating: 4 out of 5 4.0

Intelligent airbags react according to the severity of an impact and roll bars help if things get inverted. ABS on all models, optional run-flat tyres and traction control, plus strong locks and excellent security.

It's actually better than you'd expect. A drop down boot reveals a smallish boot which grows slightly with the roof up. However the back seats can be folded down and the back of the roof lifted to help swallow bigger items.
