BMW has released pricing details on the forthcoming Mini Convertibles, which go on sale in the UK this summer.

The 90bhp Mini One Convertible kicks off the soft-top range at £13,325. Its 115bhp Cooper Convertible range mate will sell for a £1,300 premium, at £14,625. That's a carefully-metered figure, undercutting both Peugeot's popular but ageing 206 CC and Daihatsu's new Copen. Citroën's £12k C3 Pluriel, Smart's similarly-tagged Roadster Light, and Ford's most basic StreetKa all come for less, however. Both cars get improved standard equipment over the standard hatch that incorporates a remote alarm, ISOFIX child seating points, a parking distance control system and a rev counter.

Buyers will be able to choose between eight body colours including hot orange and cool blue, both exclusive to the rag-top. There will also be new interior upholstery schemes offered across the range.
