A carry over from 2006, the Mini Cooper convertible is a compact two-door four-passenger car that features a power convertible soft top that can either be fully retracted or has a feature that only folds back the first section to give you a open-top sunroof. The base model offers a four-cylinder 1.6 liter engine that produces 115 horsepower, one that comes standard with a five-speed manual transmission or the variable-speed automatic. There is also an S model that features the same 1.6-liter engine with a supercharger that increases the horsepower to 168. The S model comes standard with a six-speed manual transmission or an optional six-speed automatic.Read more Read less
The MINI Cooper convertible awaits a redesign for the 2009 model year to put it in line with this year's coupe, so it remains largely unchanged for 2007. Now standard is an auxiliary audio input for portable digital music players and the S model has a few more wheels from which to choose. The Sidewalk Package debuts for 2007, offering dynamic stability control, unique interior appointments, front fog lights, xenon headlights, automatic air conditioning, and a harmon/kardon sound system, among other items.
Inexpensive, top-down fun; highly customizable.
The 2007 MINI Cooper convertible continues to be one of the most popular low-cost convertibles on the market, mainly due to its charismatic image, its nimble handling, and its long list of standard items that most of its competitors offer as optional equipment. The MINI's compact package can seat four people, and the supercharged S model produces a lively 168 horsepower, which outdoes a number of its heavier peers.
