As soon as BMW took full control of the MINI marque in 2000, it was only a matter of time before they started to expand the iconic brand with niche spin-offs. Cue the MINI Cooper Roadster, introduced in 2012.

The two-seat convertible mixes classic styling with the handling of a road-hugging sports car, while boasting slightly more cargo room than the MINI Convertible. Still in its first generation, the Roadster is available in three trim levels with acceleration that ranges from pleasant to exhilarating.
