2016 Mini Cooper Convertible to be launched in India on March 16

BMW India will launch the 2016 Mini Cooper Convertible on March 16 for the Indian market. The open-top car will serve as a niche segment in India and will be targeted at the consumers looking for the joy and style while driving with the roof down.

The 2016 Mini Cooper Convertible is built on a new UKL platform and has grown in size. It measures 3,821mm in length, 1,727mm in width and 1,415mm in height. These dimensions have increased by 98mm, 44mm and 1mm respectively, as compared to its predecessor. The wheelbase is longer by 28mm, while the front and rear track have expanded by 42mm and 34mm respectively. The new car is heavier by 120kg due to the rise in the chassis strength.

The biggest USP of the car is the soft top that can open and shut up to speeds of 30kmph in just 18seconds. The three-door soft top convertible, in terms of appearance, still carries forward the retro classic stance of the Minis. It sports round headlamps with LED DRLs, a signature chrome grille and chrome embellishments on tail lamps. The cabin will be a feature rich compartment with its interior adorned in cloth and leather combination. The car will boast of a host of passenger convenience and safety features.

The new Mini Cooper Convertible for the Indian market will be offered in both petrol and diesel powertrains. The petrol version might be powered by the 1.5-litre three-cylinder mill capable of producing 134bhp of power, while the oil-burner might get a 1.5-litre three-cylinder diesel engine churning out 116bhp of power. All these engines will come mated to a six-speed automatic gearbox.

Expected to be priced at Rs 35lakh, the car will be brought to India via the CBU route (Completely Built-up Unit). This is a lucrative price tag especially for people who love open-top driving and are looking for a fun convertible yet compact car.
