The Mini Convertible Sidewalk Edition packs a 2.0-liter four-banger TwinPower turbopetrol that generates 192hp and 280Nm, and is mated to the aforementioned gearbox or a seven-speed Steptronic Sport transmission as an option. The engine may not be as powerful as the John Cooper Works GP’ powerplant, but it’s still punchier than the smaller 1.5-liter mill that the regular Cooper gets.

Besides, it’s by no means underpowered, because Mini says the setup allows this particular hatch to do 0-100kph in 7.1 seconds and can reach a top speed of 230kph.

As for its pricing, the Mini Convertible Sidewalk Edition is now available for P3,400,000 in our market. Expensive? You tell us what you think of this new Mini and its price tag, readers. Share your two cents in the comments section, please.
