The 2008 MINI Cooper convertible continues to be one of the most popular low-cost convertibles on the market, mainly due to its charismatic image, its nimble handling, and its long list of standard items that most of its competitors offer as optional equipment. The MINI's compact package can seat four people, and the supercharged S model produces a lively 168 horsepower, which outdoes a number of its heavier peers.
The MINI Cooper convertible awaits a redesign for the 2009 model year to put it in line with this year's coupe, so it remains largely unchanged for 2008.
The 2008 MINI Cooper convertible is again offered with a normally aspirated 1.6L four-cylinder engine that produces 115 horsepower and a supercharged version of the same engine that produces 168 horsepower. The supercharged S is outfitted with a six-speed Getrag manual transmission while the base model has a five-speed standard. The base Cooper can be ordered with an optional continuously variable transmission, while the S has an optional six-speed automatic with Steptronic paddles. Both models have a go-kart feel that is unlike just about anything at this price.

MINI Certified Pre-Owned Warranty
|*MINI NEXT Warranty Program provides coverage for 2 years or 50,000 (whichever comes first) from the expiration date of the 4 year/50,000 mile MINI New Passenger Car Limited Warranty.
Although the MINI NEXT Certified Pre-Owned Limited Warranty is pretty comprehensive, it is not an extension of the MINI New Passenger Car Limited Warranty. The MINI NEXT Certified Pre-Owned Limited Warranty takes over when the original MINI New Passenger Car Limited Warranty expires and provides somewhat different coverage.
