Sassy and spontaneous, the MINI Convertible Sidewalk Edition celebrates a rich heritage of unfiltered excitement and stands in the tradition of previous special editions. Providing a fresh interpretation of MINI’s charm and style, it takes the fun and excitement of ‘wind-in-the-hair’ motoring to the next level. Under the bonnet beats the heart of a powerful MINI Cooper S engine, too. So get ready to enjoy pure joy in the sunshine.
The MINI Convertible Sidewalk Edition combines iconic with contemporary to create aesthetically compelling contrasts. The Deep Laguna metallic colour adorns the bodywork and is perfectly complemented by the anthracite soft top roof. The ‘SIDEWALK’ insignia lends distinctive accents to the side scuttles and door entry strips to make this special edition all the more special.
WALK ON THE DESIGN SIDE.
The body is finished in an eye-catching Deep Laguna metallic – a colour emblematic of driving top down under blue skies. This is complemented by compelling, reflective geometric design patterns that embellish the bonnet stripes and other components.
3-IN-1 SOFT TOP ROOF.
The MINI Convertible Sidewalk Edition boasts an electrically powered 3-in-1 roof that’s a little different to others on the road. The quiet, intelligent Z-folding mechanism operates in 3 stages: up, down, or hallmark MINI sunroof mode to let the breeze in. It fully opens or closes in 18 seconds flat, too – even at speeds of up to 30 km/h. And the soft top fabric features a special, intertwined geometric design that embodies the drive to keep moving forward.
Specially designed for this edition, the signature anthracite/black bonnet stripes are flanked on both sides by subtle petrol colour pin lines to underline the MINI Convertible Sidewalk Edition’s exclusivity. These contrasts discreetly emphasise the exquisite bodywork and stylishly harmonise with the roof and mirror cap colouring.
You know the MINI Convertible Sidewalk Edition when you see it, thanks in no small part to the exclusive side scuttle badging above the indicators on the front fenders, which bears the model’s SIDEWALK insignia to provide extra individuality.
Rounding things off in considerable style – and sure to turn heads – are the newly designed 17” Scissor Spoke two-tone alloy wheels. 17” Propeller Spoke and 17” Roulette Spoke (both two-tone silver & black) light-alloy wheels are available as options, too. You can also go an inch higher off the ground with the 18” Cone Spoke or 18” MINI Yours British Spoke designs. All wheels listed can be fitted with runflat tyres for added safety and peace of mind.
Reimagined for modern driving in modern times, these striking LED rear lights feature the Union Jack motif. The flag design integrates all the light functions – with the indicators displayed on the horizontal and the breaks on the vertical. Offset against the Deep Laguna metallic blue of unity, it offers a subtle yet defiant stance.
MINI’s tradition of attention to detail and impulsiveness is the driving force behind the design of the MINI Convertible Sidewalk Edition’s interior. There is no shortage of subtle hues, premium materials and refined touches to admire when the top goes down. And with endless customisation options available, you’ll have no problem creating a style that best reflects yours.
We wanted the stylish surface designs to lend a special essence to the interior – and the petrol paint effect gracing these door bezels does just that. They were created to perfectly match the colours of the ambient light and the surroundings – and offer an air of sophistication in the sunshine that will simply make you feel great.
Soft to the touch, this ergonomically shaped sports steering wheel with contrast stitching in petrol offers an especially good grip and lends your interior a confident, sporty character. The multifunction options put a variety of easy-to-use telephone, voice and audio controls at your fingertips. And as testimony to this special edition, it bears the SIDEWALK insignia in the lower spoke.

Nothing epitomises the craftsmanship that goes into fashioning MINI Convertible Sidewalk Edition’s enticing interior better than the exclusive MINI Yours Leather Lounge Sidewalk upholstery. The stylish anthracite is tastily embellished by the intricate contrast stitching in dark petrol and Energetic Yellow and the braided piping in petrol. While the perforated light petrol leather texture background adds an extra touch of elegance. The ‘SIDEWALK’ badge and rivet complete the picture with confidence.
