New Mini Convertible Loses Some Camo Ahead of Geneva Debut

If you expected from Mini to surprise you with the design of the next Mini Convertible you are in for a disappointment.

Our spies caught the new Mini Convertible rolling on the streets with minimal camouflage, showing just how close it is to its official debut which probably will take place in Geneva Motor Show next month.

The no-surprises theme will also continue to its available powertrains as well, with the Convertible using the same engines and gearboxes as the hardtop version. This means that the funky open-top four-seater will be available with the turbocharged 3-cylinder 134hp 1.5-litre petrol engine for the Cooper (complete with i8 bragging rights) and an also turbocharged 192hp 2.0-litre petrol engine for the Cooper S. Transmission options will be two, a six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic.

For those who want the wind blowing ever harder on their hair, Mini is preparing a Cooper S Works version too, powered by the same turbocharged 2.0-litre, albeit with 228hp on tap and upgraded sports suspension.
