As with all other 2013 Mini models, Bluetooth wireless connectivity is now standard on the Roadster, replacing Sirius satellite radio, which becomes an option. A semi-automatic roof and wind deflector are now standard on all Roadsters. John Cooper Works editions get improved fuel economy and the option of an automatic transmission.

About MINI Roadster

Mini's 2-seat Roadster for 2015 fills the void left by the demise of such classic British roadsters as the Triumph Spitfire and TR6. Unlike these vintage 2-seaters, however, the Mini Roadster is neither anemic nor unreliable. To create the Roadster, the Cooper convertible has been rethought, offering less passenger space but a larger trunk and a big boost in performance. Though not as sleek as the Mazda MX-5 Miata, the Roadster, nevertheless, has a charm all its own. Like the Fiat 500c, the 2015 Mini Roadster offers three different engine choices, including the high-output John Cooper Works edition. But where the Roadster outmuscles both the Fiat and Mazda, its $27,000 starting price makes it a much more expensive prospect.

"I absolutely love this vehicle. I have a black JCW edition roadster, loaded with options. It is fast fun and well designed. Plenty of trunk space for either road trips or trips to your local stores. It is fast, responsive, and fuel efficient. This thing turns heads wherever I go. I've had several fast and fun vehicles over the years, some very desirable, but this is thus far my favorite. Was it costly? Yes, but I believe you get what you pay for and the resale should be reasonably good also. However, I plan to keep this till I die!"

"After driving both a Miata and a TR-7for 20 and 30 years, I am in love with this vehicle. It handles like a dream and the S has all the power to accelerate and handle the mountains. It is so much fun to drive up and down the mountains around all the twists and turns. I am getting about 36 mpg on long trips. This vehicle gives me a sense of security when driving on an interstate, something I did not feel with the other two vehicles. The trunk holds an amazing amount of luggage or groceries. The top is easy to put up or down. Everywhere I stop people admire it. I plan to keep this one for 20 to 30 years."

Pros: "peppy, fun, and economical on gas"

Cons: "no auto-up on windows"

"Vey well thought out approach o the Roadster class of cars with only a few missing exceptions for a 2013 model: no auto up windows, no built in garage door opener, and the windscreen is left over from Tonka Toy days, making it very hard to see at night as it is not clear. i am looking for an aftermarket product for that. despite these shortcomings in a German-engineered car, the driving is lovely although i previously drove a quattro TT that makes all other driving pale by comparison for handling curves. Peppy, reliable, and great mileage. Trunk is roomier than i thought it would be, and the shelf actually works there. Bluetooth microphone is very good but not great on the receiving end, but i hear everyone just fine. miniapp on the iphone is very good for internet radio too, and an entire year of Sirius radio is a plus. Gas tank nozzle holder is a bit shabby, so be careful when you fill up. Tricked out price was still 30K short of replacing the TT with a new TTS, and with the difference, i can enjoy a lot of holidays. haha."
