MINI Convertible – Overview
The MINI Convertible is perhaps one of the rarest models in Malaysia, as MINI Malaysia itself only introduced the latest generation F57 from 2019 and then followed by the facelift from June 2021. MINI Malaysia currently offers a sole Cooper S variant of the F57 MINI Convertible range in Malaysia.
When it debuted in Malaysia in 2019, only 20 units were made available and then another 20 units were added via the limited edition Sidewalk Edition the following year. The MINI Convertible Cooper S started its pricing at RM 279,888 when first introduced, with the Sidewalk Edition some RM6,000 more even after enjoying the partial exemption of sales tax.
Today, the facelifted MINI Convertible Cooper S retails from RM 267,160 for the standard warranty and raising to RM274,360 for the extended coverage. In Malaysia, where convertible models are nearly non-existent, the MINI Convertible has no direct competitors, with the closest being the Mazda MX-5 RF, Mercedes-Benz C-Class convertible and the BMW Z4.
