In the absence of any significant performance gains over the regular Mini, the 2013 Mini Cooper Roadster makes more of a statement in terms of styling.
- Sharp handling
- Distinctive exterior styling
- Great fuel economy
- Highly customizable
- Slightly more cargo capacity than the Mini convertible.
- No measurable performance gain over Mini convertible
- Choppy ride (especially in the John Cooper Works trim)
- Convertible top lacks refinement
- Limited outward visibility.
