The MINI Convertible today won “Best Convertible” at the 2018 Auto Express Awards.

Steve Fowler, Editor of Auto Express said “The MINI Convertible has always been a popular drop-top, and the newly facelifted third-generation version is the best yet.


This is a car offering open-top fun and thrills in a supermini-sized and shaped package, and with a broad line-up of trims and engines there’s a MINI Convertible for almost any driver”.


This year the MINI Convertible celebrated its 25th Anniversary with a special edition vehicle. Since its launch in 2016, over 14,000 vehicles have been sold in the UK making it the best-selling Convertible in the UK.

David George, Director, MINI UK commented on the win, “To win this award is a great achievement, and testament to the importance we place on the model within our product line-up. With the product refresh earlier this year, we’re delighted that the MINI Convertible continues to be the best-selling Convertible in the UK”.


Upgraded in March 2018, the new MINI Convertible is more stylish, practical and sophisticated than ever before. Priced from £19,795, it features a fully electric roof which opens and closes in just 18 seconds and a brand new 6.5 inch infotainment system.


Exceptionally high levels of standard equipment differentiate MINI Convertible from its competitors - MINI Visual Boost Radio, MINI Connected, Bluetooth, Rear Parking Distance Control and Rear Reversing Camera are standard across the range.

CO2 emission information.

The values for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and energy consumption shown were determined in a standardised test cycle according to the European Regulation (EC) 715/2007 in the version currently applicable. The figures refer to a vehicle with basic configuration in Germany and the range shown considers transmission (automatic or manual) and the different wheels and tyres available on the selected model and may vary during the configuration.

The values of the vehicles labelled with (*), are already based on the test cycle according to the new WLTP regulation and are translated back into NEDC-equivalent values in order to allow a comparison between vehicles. More information on the transition from NEDC to WLTP test procedures can be found here.

These figures are intended for comparison purposes and may not be representative of what a user achieves under usual driving conditions. For plug-in hybrid vehicles and battery electric vehicles the figures have been obtained using a combination of battery power and petrol fuel after the battery had been fully charged. Plug-in hybrid vehicles and battery electric vehicles require mains electricity for charging. The CO2 emissions labels are determined according to Directive 1999/94/EC and the Passenger Car (Fuel consumption and CO2 Emissions Information) Regulations 2001, as amended. They are based on the fuel consumption, CO2 values and energy consumptions according to the NEDC cycle.

A guide on fuel economy and CO2 emissions which contains data for all new passenger car models is available at any point of sale free of charge. For further information you can also visit this link.
