The 2010 MINI Cooper Convertible brims with personality and a timeless flair, and in any version—the base Cooper or high-performance Cooper S—it's a delightful car to drive.

Convertibles lose the roofline that sets the MINI's wedgy stance, but the top design apes it closely, and a wide band of chrome at the shoulder line is a smart touch. They drive much the same as Cooper coupes, though they're a slight bit heavier and have a touch of the cowl shake that's expected in drop-tops.

The Convertible has a cargo pass-through and a dual-piece tailgate that opens wide to carry a reasonable amount of luggage. Visibility, though, is an issue even in the ragtop; even without passengers, rear headrests cut into straight-back visibility on the Convertible. Safety-wise, the Convertible has an added measure: pop-up roll bars that deploy along with airbags if a rollover is detected.

TCC Rating
How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
