Mini has revealed its new convertible model, which is due to go on sale from March in the UK and will cost from £18,475.

New features includes a quieter electric roof that isnd more rear space.

The new model will be powered by three engines: a 1.5-litre three-cylinder petrol engine (Cooper), a 2.0-litre petrol (Cooper S) and a 1.5-litre three-pot diesel (Cooper D).

Most frugal is the 116hp diesel model which emits 100g/km of CO2 in manual form and returns 70.6mpg, while the 136hp Cooper emits 114g/km of CO2 and returns 55.4mpg.

The range-topping 192hp Cooper S, meanwhile, emits from 131g/km of CO2 and returns 48.7mpg in automatic form.

Mini says the convertible's roof can be opened at up to 18mph, via a toggle switch on the front roof frame, while when stationary, it can be operated by using a button on the remote key.

Boot space is up by 25% compared to its predecessor, Mini says with 160 litres capacity with the roof open and 215 when it is closed.

Driver assistance technology includes rear parking sensors and a rear view camera as standard, and front sensors as an option.

The Mini convertible also includes the firm's Driving Assistant option, which comprises a camera-based adaptive cruise control, as well as collision and pedestrian warning with initial brake function, while a head-up display also features.

Standard equipment across the range includes air-con, keyless engine start, and the company's media system.
