The Mini Roadster is a two-seat convertible that was produced by Mini from 2012 to 2015. It was based on the second-generation Mini Coupe, but it had a folding soft top instead of a fixed roof. The Mini Roadster was powered by the same 1.6L turbocharged four-cylinder engine as the Mini Coupe, which produced 181 horsepower. It was available with either a six-speed manual transmission or a six-speed automatic transmission. The Mini Roadster was known for its open-air driving experience, agile handling, and stylish design. It was a popular choice for those who wanted a sporty and stylish convertible. The Mini Roadster was discontinued following the 2015 model year. It was replaced by the Mini John Cooper Works Roadster.
