Mini is getting a rolling start to the year with the reveal of its special edition Sidewalk Convertible, which is set to arrive in South Africa by Q2 2020. The new derivative will be available in two engine variants and features a catalogue of unique details and kit.
The Sidewalk is detailed in a Deep Laguna metallic body paint with model-specific bonnet stripes and contrasting colour edges – White Silver or Thunder Grey are the optional alternatives. The canvas roof boasts an artistically woven-in arrow graphic, a set of 17-inch alloy Scissor Spoke two-tone wheels and Sidewalk branding on the indicator bezels rounds off the exterior treatment.
The cabin receives a unique rework as well. Here you’ll find brushed aluminium door sills with “Sidewalk” lettering and anthracite leather upholstery with green and yellow contrast stitching and piping. Furthermore, the backlit decorative trim on the passenger side in Piano Black is combined with the same green and yellow accents and the steering wheel adopts a Sidewalk logo.
The two engine variants available on this model are the 100 kW 1,5-litre turbo-triple and 141 kW 2,0-litre four-cylinder, both of which will be coupled with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission
