2007 MINI Cooper Convertible Sidewalk

MINI will be unveiling a new addition to its Convertible range at the 2007 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS), when it presents the Sidewalk model for the first time on January 6 in Detroit.

MINI Convertibles have always combined great handling characteristics with the thrill of open-top motoring, but when the Sidewalk hits MINI dealers from April 2007, MINI fans will have the opportunity to get their hands on a fresh model boasting a raft of luxurious design enhancements.

Andy Hearn, General Manager for MINI ÚK, said: 'The MINI One Seven, Cooper Park Lane and Cooper S Checkmate editions of the MINI hatch have been hugely popular, with nearly 8,000 models sold in the ÚK in just 12 months. We are confident that Sidewalk will offer the same exclusivity and maximum value for Convertible customers. Úndoubtedly it will reinforce MINI's unique position as a premium small car.'

2007 MINI Cooper Convertible SidewalkThe new Sidewalk model offers a host of exclusive and additional options, and is available on the One, Cooper and Cooper S. It includes a choice of four paintwork colours, Malt Brown English Leather upholstery, 17' Night Spoke light alloy wheels, bi-colour leather steering wheel and gear knob and special ‘Sidewalk' interior trim, floor mats, badges and door inserts.

Additional MINI options that are standard on Sidewalk models are Automatic Stability Control and Traction (ASC+T), multifunction leather steering wheel, mirror caps in body colour, chrome line interior, passenger seat height adjustment, sports seats, storage compartment pack, front fog lamps, manual air conditioning, on board computer, interior light pack and white indicators.

On the road prices are as follows:


MINI One Sidewalk £16,910
MINI Cooper Sidewalk £17,960
MINI Cooper S Sidewalk £20,235

Should a customer wish to specify these options on any other MINI Convertible, the cost of the extra kit would be approximately 25 per cent higher than if purchased as part of a standard package on the Sidewalk edition.
