Making Waves: The MINI Convertible Seaside Edition


On the West Coast, we are well known for our incredible beaches, making it the perfect place to cruise along in a MINI convertible. 2023 marks the 30th anniversary of MINI’s sporty open top four-seater, and to celebrate, we’re making waves with a new take on an old classic. The Seaside Edition is as blue as the sea and as stunningly white as the beach, a special, coastal-inspired version of our classic family member. Celebrating 30 years of top-down excitement, the convertible accompanies you on all your coastal adventures.

Whether you're looking for a calm cruise along the water's edge or a sporty driving experience, the Seaside Edition of the MINI Convertible is available as the Cooper and the Cooper S with MINI TwinTurbo power technology. Currently, the MINI Cooper is the world’s only premium convertible in the small car segment and with an impressively distinctive look in traditional brand style.

From your first glance at this stunning coastal beauty, you'll hear the call of the ocean. The Seaside Edition features two body colours, Caribbean Aqua and Nanuq White with double decorative stripes in white running from the side doors to the rear of the vehicle. The exclusive exterior design is rounded off with a unique graphic on the front apron, where a stylized 30 refers to the model’s anniversary. Classic MINI icons are integrated into every detail of the vehicle’s exterior, with striking LED rear lights bearing the classic, recognizable Union Jack motif and 18-inch alloy wheels in Pulse Spoke design reminiscent of pulsating waves in the water.

The interior will have you feeling like you're on holiday with light and airy coastal colours of sandy beige and calming blue throughout and beachy textured touches on every surface. The special edition’s dashboard is stunning and contemporary, featuring an exclusive decorative SEASIDE 30 design and a heated steering wheel that keeps your hands warm on cool seaside nights. Exclusive MINI Yours leather lounge carbon black upholstery, embellished by intricate contrast stitching keeps you comfortable and at ease. The premium materials and refined touches of this special edition can always be admired, even when the top goes down.

The latest generation of the MINI operating systems are integrated into the Seaside Edition, helping to optimize quick and intuitive control of the vehicle functions. Phone, voice and audio controls are within reach of the driver’s fingertips, along with navigation and apps. Meaning even though this is a spin on a classic you still have all the comforts of our latest generation of MINI models.

Starting in February 2023, the limited Seaside Edition of the MINI Convertible will be ready for the roads, taking joy-in-the-sunshine motoring to new heights.
