. . . Beyond ardent Mini loyalists however, it's hard to recommend the Convertible. The laudable points of its gearbox and quality are totally undone by its dynamic shortcomings. Fans of the brand will likely not consider a DS 3 Cabriolet or a Beetle, so suggesting them is probably a moot point. Those after more simple and rewarding roadster thrills though will be better served by a MX-5, as they have been for a very long time. It's the Answer to Everything, right?
