There is a new Mini convertible in town.

The new Mini Sidewalk was recently introduced to the already exciting range.

It comes as a limited edition.

With its exclusive design and unique interior, only 50 of the top models in the range will be sold on our shores.

The stylish paintwork, specially developed light-alloy wheels, exclusive leather upholstery and a wide range of features are the most striking highlights of the new Mini Convertible Sidewalk.

Customers can choose from the 85kW Mini Cooper Convertible or the 125kW Mini Cooper S Convertible.

With its waistline rising slightly to the rear and further accentuated by an all-round chrome trim-bar beneath the windows, the Mini Convertible Sidewalk boasts a powerful, compact and chic profile.

The steep windscreen, frameless side windows and the double rollover bar above the rear seats, combine with the space-saving soft roof to round off the sophisticated look and appearance of the new Mini Sidewalk.

A special feature exclusive to the Mini Convertible Sidewalk is the newly designed light-alloy rim set in twin-tone Night Spoke design.

Fog lamps and run-flat tyres are also standard on the Mini Convertible Sidewalk.

The run-flat tyres allow the driver to cover a distance of up to 150 kilometres at a speed of up to 80kmh, even after suffering a complete flat.

And as a further highlight, the tyre defect indicator fitted as standard permanently monitors air pressure in all tyres and warns the driver about any gradual loss of pressure.

Mini Sidewalk also comes standard with a number of comfort features such as air conditioning, an on-board computer and the Mini Boost radio including a CD player.

Safety has been taken into consideration.

The Sidewalk is fitted with four disc brakes, four-sensor ABS, Electronic Brake Force Distribution (EBD) and Cornering Brake Control (CBC) guarantee superior driving and tracking stability at all times, even when applying the brakes in an extreme situation.

This high standard of active safety is then further enhanced by optional Automatic Stability and Traction Control (ASC+T, standard in the MINI Cooper S Convertible Sidewalk) and Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) also available as an option.
