Synopsis: R series explored
The Convertible MINI was the first MINI Cooper model to be released in base model and S model versions under the same R series designation.

R52
R52 S


In 2004, MINI released a convertible version of the re-introduced MINI. Also a Generation 1, the MINI Cooper Convertible has two doors and front and rear seats. However, the rear of the vehicle forsakes the hatchback of the Hardtop MINI, replacing it with a drop down 'tailgate' that is reminiscent of the classic Mini. It incorporates similarly prominent external hinges. With the roof in the closed position, the rear roof section and luggage shelf can be raised with two handles, semi-tailgate style, to access the luggage space easier.
