From the very beginning, the MINI Convertible stood for
refreshing openness, individual character and yet also a clear
brand identity. Its upright windscreen ensured that the driver,
front passenger and rear passengers instantly found themselves
sitting in the open air as soon as the textile top was opened.
Also with the short overhangs at front and rear, large
wheel arches, the height of the shoulder line and numerous
hallmark brand design elements left no doubt as to the kinship
of the open 4-seater model. And thanks to a precisely defined roof
shape, the characteristic MINI proportions were instantly recognisable
when the soft top was closed, too.
However, things are a little different when the split
rear seatback in the MINI Convertible is folded down.
This increases its maximum load volume to 660 litres.
In the MINI Convertible in case of an accident they is the
signal-section rollover bars springs up automatically behind
the headrest at the rear from idle position.
