MINI Malaysia today introduced the New MINI Convertible Sidewalk Edition, in celebration of the original 2007 Sidewalk Edition seen in the first generation of the MINI Convertible.

Highlights on the exterior include a unique Deep Laguna metallic colour, individual side scuttles in the Sidewalk design, an electric-powered 3-in-1 black soft-top roof with interwoven Titanium Grey “Sidewalk” pattern that opens and closes in 18 seconds at speeds up to 30 km/h, sporty bonnet stripes, and 17-inch light-alloy Scissor Spoke 2-tone wheels.
Inside, the variant is equipped with the Sidewalk Edition interior that features the exclusive MINI Yours Leather Lounge Sidewalk seats in anthracite, combined with contrasting seams in Petrol and Energetic Yellow.
The Petrol paint effect also embellish the door trims, with doormats in matching dark Petrol surrounds and Energetic Yellow seams are also standard to the variant.
The sports steering wheel bearing the Sidewalk logo and contract seams in Petrol further accentuate the sportiness of the New MINI Convertible Sidewalk Edition, along with the stylishly decorative cockpit trim in Petrol finish.
The MINI Convertible Sidewalk Edition also features LED headlamps, LED front and rear fog lamps, the interior lighting package with 12 colour ambient lights, as well as the MINI Driving Modes, automatic air conditioning, a height-adjustable front passenger seat and a storage compartment package.
