WHAT'S COMING UP?

"Ragtop Grows Up"

Australia's The Motor Report reviews the new 2016 MINI Cooper Convertible and concludes:
. . . The Mini Convertible has grown better with age, and while some may bemoan the gradual swelling of its external proportions, there’s no denying that this is one of the better-looking sub-$50k four-seat convertibles on the market right now.

And truth be told, it’s got universal appeal. At a 57:43 percent female:male split, almost as many males buy roofless Minis as women.

And when the product is now this good, who can blame them? The only real negative here is a claustrophobic back seat, but that’s to be expected when making something as tiny as a Mini hatchback into a convertible. A Tardis, this ain’t.
