The 2016 MINI Cooper Convertible has made its public debut recently, during the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show, in a premiere.

After being officially unveiled over the web just a week ago, the new MINI Convertible is being placed into the spotlights once again, this time with the carmaker bringing it to the 2015th edition of the Tokyo Motor Show. The model in question is going to be offered in 11 exterior colors, including the Caribbean Aqua, and it has grown by 89 mm in length, 44 mm in width and 1 mm in height compared to its predecessor, standing in at 3,821 mm, 1,727 mm and 1,414 mm, respectively. The wider tracks, 42 mm at the front and 34 mm at the rear, are also visible and MINI says that the wheelbase has increased as well by 28 mm.

The total luggage capacity stands at 215 liters with the top closed and 160 liters with the top open, meaning 25 percent better than before and, speaking on its roof, you should know that this has a textile soft top with a multi-layer structure, which can be opened and closed at speeds up to 30 km/h (19 mph) in approximately 18 seconds. At the time of its launch, MINI will be offering the Convertible with a choice of three different engines, including the 1.5l TwinPower Turbo 3-cylinder with its 136 HP (100 kW) and 220 Nm (162 lb-ft), the 2.0l TwinPower Turbo four-cylinder producing 192 HP (141 kW) and 280 Nm (206 lb-ft) and the 1.5l TwinPower Turbo 3-cylinder diesel, rated at 116 HP (85 kW) and 270 Nm (199 lb-ft) of torque.
