Those in the market for a unique and fun vehicle can take a good look at the 2019 MINI Convertible. In this car, fresh air is never in limited quantities, and the interior and exterior details are classy. With two doors, they have room for four passengers.
There are three choices for the 2019 MINI Convertible. The Cooper offers what one might consider standard features, and the Cooper S offers a bit more. The John Cooper Works model is at the high end of the line.
There are new trims for 2019 on each of the above models; these result in many layers of possibilities regarding customization. Apple CarPlay is a new addition for this model year, and the accompanying infotainment system has been slightly tweaked to be more user-friendly.
The Cooper Convertible runs on a TwinPower Turbo engine. It's a 1.5-liter model with three cylinders. The other two vehicles have a larger engine, also a TwinPower Turbo. It has a displacement of two liters and has four cylinders. Both use direct injection to enhance efficiency.
Fuel economy varies depending on whether a six-speed manual or automatic transmission is selected. For instance, combined miles per gallon is 25 in the John Cooper Works Convertible (manual), it's 32 on the Cooper Convertible (manual), and it's 28 on the Cooper S (automatic).
The Cooper Convertible has 134 horsepower and can hit a top speed of just under 130 miles per hour. The Cooper S pushes horsepower to 189 and the top speed to over 140 mph. The John Cooper Works is the choice for drivers who prioritize performance, as it has 228 horsepower. It takes just over six seconds to go from zero to 60 miles per hour.
Beyond selecting which type of 2019 MINI Convertible one would like, drivers can also select their preferred trim. Classic, Signature, and Iconic are the three options, with each offering more advantages.
The Cooper comes in seven or eight different exterior colors, depending on the vehicle. Those riding up front can enjoy heated front seats when the weather is cool. The Classic is equipped for SiriusXM Satellite radio, and it has various touches like bonnet stripes and a leather steering wheel for more style.
For safety, there's a rear view camera that automatically turns on when the car is put in reverse. Parking sensors can help a driver avoid minor bumps when getting into small spots.
The Signature can come in 16, 17, or 18 colors, and one can choose to get a roof and mirror caps that are body color, black, or white. The wheels are enhanced in this trim as compared to the Classic. The interior of the car can come in a sleek, piano black, with a black checkered dash.
On a Signature, there are several advanced technological features, such as a universal garage door opener and touchscreen with navigation built into it. These cars have an on-board computer so that driving data can be provided in real-time. Adjustments to the audio can be made through the use of a central control knob. Further, these Signature convertibles come with Comfort Access keyless entry so that key fobs can stay in a secure compartment as drivers come and go from the MINI.
With the most features, the Iconic is a premium option. There are 17, 18, or 19 exterior paint choices for the Cooper, Cooper S, and John Cooper Works convertibles. There are numerous options for the wheels, ranging from 17" Tentacle Spokes to 18" JCW two-tone wheels. On the front, LED headlights can light things up nicely.
The seats on an Iconic are sport seats, and fine leather surfaces are found throughout the interior. Instead of having a 6.5" touchscreen, its display measures 8.8". In addition, it has a few assistive-driving safety systems and a premium Harman/Kardon audio set up. Apple CarPlay compatibility can be a big draw for some customers.
With a 2019 MINI Convertible, there's the opportunity to add custom style to the vehicle. The "MINI Yours Customised" program allows certain details to be decided by the customer. Trim pieces, like those on the front fender or door sills, can come in various colors. Patterns and even text can be incorporated into these details.
This personalization package starts at the Signature in a limited version and has more expansive choices on the Iconic. It allows drivers to trick out their vehicles and make them truly unique, thanks to 3D printing technology. LED lights are also available on some models, and with these, a custom image can be projected upon entry.
Formula for Calculating Dealer Cost:
- Example: Base MINI Convertible invoice price + the dealer Invoice price of options + destination - Holdback = Total Dealer Cost.
- What is Holdback? A hidden amount that manufacturers give back to a dealer. It is a percentage of the MSRP or the Invoice price.
Total Dealer Cost - Rebate and Incentive + Taxes / Licensing Fees = True Dealer Cost. (You can get rebates and incentives here.)
Note: All MINI Convertible MSRP, invoice and dealer cost dollar figures above are approximate amounts. Prices are subject to change without notice.
A note about rebates: Most rebates are subtracted from the "on the road" figure. In most cases, you can have the rebate if you are arranging your own financing or you are paying cash. If you decide to use the manufacturer’s low interest financing, you do not usually get the rebate. Ask your dealer for details.
