Overview

What's New in the 2019 MINI Cooper?

A multifunction steering wheel, a radio with 6.5-in touchscreen, Union Jack styled rear LED lights, a USB port and Bluetooth interface are now standard on every Cooper. Wireless charging is a new option.

Which Cooper is the Best?

We've had a crush on the Cooper S ever since it came out, and we're still feeling the love. Make ours a base Cooper S Convertible with the standard suspension, 16-in wheels and the manual transmission. Spirited performance and handling, plus 32 mpg, makes for one happy bunch of Autotrader editors. Find a Mini Cooper Convertible for sale

How Much Does a 2019 MINI Cooper Cost?

The 2019 Mini Cooper Convertible is offered with three powertrains arranged into models: a base model dubbed Cooper, the even sportier Cooper S and the high-performance John Cooper Works variant. For 2019, Mini has created three trim levels (Classic, Signature and Iconic) for each powertain model. Unraveling standard and optional features is complicated, as Mini offers some upgrades as no-cost options. It's a mess. What we are calling standard equipment here is what is actually standard if you don't choose any of the no-cost options.

In trying to somehow streamline this section, we have opted to display pricing for the base Classic trim on each engine model. Then we show the upcharge and content of the Signature and Iconic trim levels for each. Classic prices include the $850 factory delivery charge.

The base-level Cooper Classic ($27,750) provides 15-in silver wheels, power convertible roof, power heated folding outboard mirrors with washer jets, auto on/off headlights, rain-sensing wipers, Sensatec leatherette seating, a leather-wrapped tilt-and-telescopic multifunction steering wheel, air conditioning, remote keyless entry, cruise control, Bluetooth connectivity, a USB port, a 6.5-in touchscreen, a 6-speaker audio system, rearview camera and rear parking sensors.

Step up to the Cooper S Classic ($31,750), which adds 16-in alloy wheels, run-flat tires, Mini driving modes, remote window/convertible top controls and satellite-radio capability.

At the top of the Mini Cooper Convertible lineup is the sporty John Cooper Works Classic ($38,250), which adds 17-in alloy wheels, larger brakes, sport suspension, upgraded front sport seats, LED headlamps with cornering lights, an aerodynamic body kit, sport pedals and grippy simulated suede/cloth upholstery.

To the Cooper Classic, the Cooper Signature ($3,000) adds, 16-in alloy wheels, Steptronic automatic transmission, Comfort Access keyless entry, heated front seats and automatic climate control.

To the Cooper S Classic, the Cooper S Signature ($4,000) adds the sport automatic transmission, Comfort Access keyless entry, convertible wind deflector, heated front seats, automatic climate control, and Active Driving Assistant with park distance control, active cruise control and parking assistant.

To the John Cooper works Classic, the John Cooper Works Signature ($3,000) adds everything in the Cooper S Signature plus JCW sport seats.

No matter the engine, stepping up to the Iconic adds $8,000. In the Cooper Iconic and Cooper S Iconic the added features over and above the Signature include 17-in alloy wheels, an upgraded steering wheel, power-folding outboard mirrors, and auto-dimming outboard and rearview mirrors.

To the John Cooper Works Signature grade, the JCW Iconic adds any Iconic features in the Cooper and Cooper S plus 18-in alloy wheels.

The Cooper convertible lineup is full of optional extras, as Mini is famous for letting drivers customize cars any way they want. Options include adaptive headlights, heated seats, automatic climate control, a navigation system, a keyless-starting system, satellite radio and a 10-speaker Harman Kardon audio system. Drivers can also choose from dozens of wheel combinations, paint colors and interior schemes.

Competition

2019 MINI Cooper vs the competition

2019 FIAT 500c -- We consider the 500c a step down from the Mini Cooper Convertible, but it's also a lot cheaper. Meanwhile, the turbocharged 500 Abarth convertible has a great engine and is almost as quick as the Cooper S Convertible for a little less money. Plus, it sounds fantastic.

2019 Ford Mustang -- Sure, it may seem a whole different animal from the Mini Cooper Convertible, but at its core, the Mustang offers many of the same thrills: top-down driving, high-performance capabilities and enjoyable styling. It's also priced about the same as the Mini, but with far more power.

2019 Mazda MX-5 Miata -- If turning heads is your priority, you might want to consider the drop-top MX-5 Miata, which is still turning heads after all these years. With only two seats, it's not as practical as the Cooper, but its rear-wheel-drive layout helps to make it more exciting in the curves.

2019 Fiat 124 Spider Convertible -- Although the Fiat 124 Spider is based off the MX-5 platform, it has a style and feel all its own, plus a turbocharged engine that's less powerful than the MX-5's engine.
