Phenomenal residual values and all of the fun driving thrills you would expect to find in a convertible. Not as sharply driven as the hatchback and the ride is quite firm. The rear seats are basically useless.

Both the Cooper and the Cooper S come with a 1.6-litre petrol engine. The JCW has a modified engine that gives 211bhp like the one used in the racers. The Mini Hatch is lighter than the convertible but it is still possible to do 0-62mph in 9.8 seconds in Cooper form, 6.9 seconds in the JCW and 7.3 in the Cooper S.
