The MINI Convertible was first introduced at the 2004 Geneva Motor Show. The four-seater has little in common with the Mini convertible from the 70s. However, the MINI Convertible retains the hallmark MINI design features and proportions of the new generation. The steeply raked windscreen and the driver's seat position provide for open ride for an unforgettable open-air feeling. With the roof open, the stylish car MINI Convertible shows its best side: The rising slightly towards the rear waistline gives it a strong profile that is accentuated by a revolving chrome strip along the window line. Its steeply raked windscreen, the absence of B-pillars, the roll bars made of high strength aluminum tube over the rear seat and the compact folded hood are the characteristics of a classic convertible as the MINI Convertible.
