Convertibles give true driving Joy. Especially now that we are approaching winters, it is the perfect time to drive in a top drop. Driving alongside mountains and wind flowing through the hair gives a sense of freedom that every driving enthusiast dreams of. So let’s take a look at one of the best convertibles available in India- MINI.
MINI Convertible 2021 redefines freedom. Driving a MINI convertible is all out an unfiltered driving experience. It is very mechanical and old school in its character yet very modern with new tech and safety built-in. Here is everything you need to know about the MINI convertible 2021
EXTERIOR: The facelifted version has a bigger grille, making the front bumper bolder. The air curtains on both left and right enhances the aerodynamics. The eye-catchy S badging on the side is integrated with the LED indicator, stylish and practical at the same time.
Other exterior changes on the 2021 Mini Convertible include the new eyeliners for the cute puppy eye headlights complementing the distinctive LED daytime running lights. It has got a new paint called Zesty yellow which is exclusive to convertible. This fluorescent paint takes the jazzy look to a whole new level. The union jack taillight adds up to the hippie look. One can even get the union jack print on the soft top.
INTERIOR: 2021 facelift has made the MINI Convertible interior even more charismatic with its new chequered pattern fabric which goes well with the Zesty yellow paint on the exterior. The minimal ambient lighting sets the mood for driving.
But the hero of the cabin is still the big grandma-inspired clock which has an infotainment system of 8.8 inches. The new multifunctional cluster replaced the conventional tacho, it provides all the vital information. The roof folds electronically and takes 18 seconds to fold down completely, it can even be opened partly as a sunroof.
Convertibles are not expected to be practical but the MINI convertible has the best of both worlds. It has enough space for luggage. When the top is closed, you have a generous 215 liters, and 160 liters when opened.
POWER: In this car, the driver’s seat is the best place to be in. At your command is the aforementioned 2.0l turbo-petrol that pushes out 192PS and 280Nm. MINI is known for its agile handling and as expected the 7-Speed dual-clutch (DCT) is smoother. It takes just 7.1 seconds to go from 0-100 Kmph
SAFETY: MINI gives you plenty of high-tech safety features to keep you safe, including a roll-over protection system, Active Cruise control, lane departure warning, an electronic parking brake, and autonomous emergency braking among other features.
