2009 Car of the Week

Motor Mouth’s Car of the week: MINI Convertible

Half a century on from the Mini’s seismic debut on Britain’s roads, the latest offering to proudly possess the name is still making waves.

This sporty all-new soft-top version of BMW’s 21st century take on the MINI comes with guaranteed performance, frugality and masses of that most intangible element, image.

The Cooper will cost just under £16k, do 123mph and almost 50 to the gallon; for the Cooper S, read £19k, 138mph and 44mpg. They’ll hit the showrooms in late March and will be built entirely in the UK.

MM verdict: the surest winner since Barack Obama.
