Summer-Ready 2016 MINI Cooper Convertible Revealed In Fall

We love MINI in every form, from the classic 1960s MINI to the modern day Countryman, MINI’s superior handling, fun appearance, and comfortable interior have never ceased to amaze us. MINI’s latest vehicle, the 2016 MINI Cooper Convertible is no exception.

With a roof that can open in only 18 seconds at speeds up to 18 mph, the 2016 MINI Cooper Convertible is ready for any adventure at the press of a button. With 11 exterior colors to choose from including the fun Caribbean Aqua paint color, you can truly make this MINI your own. Of course it’s not just the outside that’s impressive.

The 2016 MINI Cooper Convertible is bigger than ever before with 1.6 extra inches of spaces for your friends sitting in the back seat, and 25% more room for luggage. Add in the 1.5-liter turbocharged engine or optional 2.0-liter turbocharged engine and your MINI will provide all the superior handling and drivability that you have come to know and love.

Our only question is, MINI, why did you release this beautiful specimen of a car when our harshest weather is coming this way? Even though we won’t have this car in our Pittsburgh dealership until March, showing it off this soon just makes us long for nicer summer weather. No matter, when the summer-ready 2016 MINI Cooper Convertible does come by our dealership, we will love taking it out for a spin, even if it is still cold outside.

Auction items ranged anywhere from vacation getaways to restaurant and spa gift certificates and, of course, a weekend with a MINI Convertible.
