Mini Shows Open-Air Two-Seater in Detroit

2013 Mini Roadster

The 2012 Mini Coupe offers go-cart-like handling to excite just about any driver, but it’s low-slung roofline and somewhat awkward lines aren’t for everyone. The all-new 2013 Mini Roadster, however, is a little easier on the eyes while retaining the Coupe’s beloved driving dynamics.

Available in the Cooper, Cooper S, and the John Cooper Works trim levels, the Roadster is powered by three versions of the automaker’s 1.6-liter inline-four, producing 122, 184 and 211 horsepower, respectively. Responsive handling is assured thanks to a low center of gravity, a rigid body structure, and an aerodynamic design. The Roadster also offers a host of driving aids including standard Electric Power Steering and DSC (Dynamic Stability Control), and available DTC (Dynamic Traction Control) with EDLC (Electronic Differential Lock Control).

“Just like the Coupe, the Roadster went from development to production in only two short years,” said Dr. Ian Robertson, Member of the Board of Management of BMW AG, Sales and Marketing, at the Detroit Auto Show. “With this much speed in its DNA, it’s no wonder the Roadster is so quick. A spontaneous and sporty character gives drivers easy access to unbridled, open-top fun.”

In addition to promising plenty of motoring fun, the new Mini Roadster also boasts an available Harmon Kardon audio system, as well as the Mini Connected infotainment system which features Internet radio, Google search capability, an RSS reader, and social media integration.

The all-new Mini Roadster may be the first open-top two-seater in the brand’s history, but it’s certainly got the formula right while staying true to the brand’s unique DNA.
