Mini Roadster

Wed, 02 Nov 2011 00:00:00 -0700

Mini is set to add the fifth model to its family line-up in the form of the two-seat Roadster. Based around a similar concept to the recently announced Coupe, it adopts a sportier stance as well as a focus on a more youthful market. In ditching the rear seats of the cabriolet, it becomes the first two-seat convertible in the brand's history.

The car retains the Coupe's steeply raked A-pillar and windscreen, as well as the new deck-lid area that houses a pop-up rear spoiler. Chrome roll-hoops and a roof that folds cleaner than the cabriolet help tidy and simplify the exterior further. Beneath the beltline, it is business as usual, with the familiar Mini family DNA apparent from its now iconic DRG through to the rear clusters and bumper treatment.

Inside, the car is distinctly Mini once again, with the IP dominated by the large central binnacle and the rest of the interior being carried over from its siblings.
