Another week, another special from Mini Australia. This time it’s the Cooper S Convertible’s new Sidewalk Edition, which gets an exclusive colour combination.
Priced from $55,800 plus on-road costs, the Sidewalk Edition commands a $4700 premium over the regular Cooper S Convertible, although buyers are compensated for their extra spend.
Specifically, the Sidewalk Edition stands out from the Cooper S Convertible crowd with its exclusive Laguna Blue paintwork, although White Silver and Midnight Black finishes are optionally available.
The Sidewalk Edition also gets ‘arrow’ bonnet stripes and, 17-inch Scissor alloy wheels, ‘arrow’ soft-top graphics and bespoke side badging.
Inside, the Sidewalk Edition steps up with Anthracite leather upholstery with Energetic Yellow and Petrol Blue braided accents as well as a ‘Sidewalk’ logo on the bottom of its sports steering wheel, and unique scuff plates.
Just like the regular Cooper S Convertible, the Sidewalk Edition is powered by Mini's 141kW/280Nm 2.0-litre turbo-petrol four-cylinder engine that drives the front wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.
As reported, the BMW 2 Series and Audi A3 convertible rival is set to end production in 2024 due to increasingly low sales.
