The MINI Roadster was introduced in 2012 and it is the first model to be designed strictly for two people and the brand's first open-top car in its history.

Body

With an exterior length of 3,734 millimetres, wheelbase of 2,467 millimetres and width of 1,683 millimetres, the dimensions of the MINI Roadster are very similar to those of the MINI Convertible. Still the Roadster, standing just 1,390mm high, is more than 20 millimetres lower than the four-seater soft-top, giving the new two-seater a distinctive, low-slung and elegantly stretched figure from the side. Distinguishing the Roadster from the Convertible is also the more heavily raked windscreen frame, tapering upwards more sharply.
