Knoxville 2012 MINI Convertible dealer, MINI of Knoxville, offers the Mini Convertible in three trim levels: Cooper, Cooper S and top-of-the-line John Cooper Works.
The 2012 Mini Cooper Convertible is equipped with a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine that gives 121 hp and 114 pound-feet of torque. A six-speed manual with hill-start assist is standard, and a six-speed automatic is optional. Knoxville MINI Cooper Convertible drivers will go from zero to 60 mph in 8.4 seconds (9.7 seconds with the automatic). EPA-estimated fuel economy is 29 mpg city/37 mpg highway and 32 mpg combined with the manual (27/35/31 convertible) and 28/36/31 with the automatic.
The 2012 Cooper S Convertible, for sale in Knoxville, has a turbocharged version of the same engine and this turbo charge will get you 181 hp and 177 lb-ft of toque. You will go 0-60 in 7.0 seconds for the manual and 7.2 seconds for the automatic. EPA estimated fuel economy is 27/36/30 with the manual and 26/34/29 with the auto.
The John Cooper Works cranks up the turbo boost to 208 hp and 192 lb-ft of torque. A six-speed manual is the only available transmission. Go 0-60 time of 6.2 seconds for the hatchback and 6.6 for the convertible. Fuel economy is 25/33/28.
The 2012 MINI Convertible is surprisingly spacious, versatile, and sophisticated.
Depending on requirements, the rear seat backrests—50/50 split down the middle—can be folded completely. With the roof closed, this increases luggage compartment capacity to 23.3 cubic, feet. The maximum load, in turn, is 948 lb.
Like its predecessor, the MINI Convertible again comes with an Easy-Load system. With the rear lid swiveling down conveniently, the entire lid also serves as a storage tray able to carry a load of up to 176 lb.
A further important point is that the rear roof frame swivels up by approximately 35°, creating a generous luggage compartment opening for much easier loading of bulky objects.
Knoxville 2012 MINI Convertible owners will be able to customize their vehicle to fit exactly who they are. Even in standard trim, the MINI Convertible clearly expresses its exceptional position as the world’s only premium convertible in its segment. The wide range of paintwork and roof colors, interior variants and special equipment simply begs the enthusiast to take a closer look at the car – especially because the MINI Convertible comes with a complete choice of customization options so typical of the brand, making each and every car a personally configured one-off showpiece.
Even on the days that you can fry eggs on a sidewalk, Knoxville MINI shoppers will stay comfortably cool in the MINI Convertible. This remarkable vehicle comes with either manual air conditioning (standard) or automatic climate control (optional).
The automatic unit even comprises a special Convertible mode activated automatically as soon as the roof is opened. In this mode, the temperature set by the driver and passengers is consistently maintained even under the influence of the wind rushing by.
Like the MINI Hardtop and the MINI Clubman, the MINI Convertible may also be upgraded with particularly sophisticated entertainment and navigation systems. The controls for the audio system and the 6.5-inch TFT colored display for the optional navigation unit are housed in the central circular instrument.
The audio system featured as standard comes with a CD player and six loudspeakers. When equipped with a navigation system, the display is positioned within the centrally-located speedometer. To choose the functions presented in the display the driver uses a special joystick on the center console.
