MINI has launched many retro special editions, but the 2021 Cooper S convertible Sidewalk Edition references a model of a somewhat newer vintage.
The Sidewalk Edition was originally launched in 2007 and, like that model, the 2021 version features mostly cosmetic changes. With a 192 hp Cooper S powertrain featuring MINI TwinPower Turbo technology and a 7-speed Steptronic transmission with double clutch and steering wheel paddles, enabling fast and smooth gear shifts.
The Sidewalk Edition is available in Deep Laguna Metallic Blue or MINI Yours Enigmatic Black Metallic, both with an Anthracite roof and "Sidewalk" graphics. The special edition also has 17-inch Scissor Spoke 2-tone wheels.
Inside, the look continues with unique interior lights, floor mats and a leather-wrapped steering wheel with a similar design. As for standard comforts, the 8.8-inch infotainment system is onboard and bundled with a Harman Kardon premium sound system. Heated seats, a head-up display and automatic climate control are all included.
