2016 MINI Convertible Caught on Shots, Will Be Coming with Lots of Gizmos Inside

After MINI sent the third-generation Clubman out for some tests, it was now the MINI Convertible`s turn to be taken out for a spin, before making its official debut somewhere next year. As seen in the spy shots, the 2016 MINI Convertible will not bring some new elements at the body, but some reports have announced a lot of interesting and fresh high-tech gizmos inside.

We might be talking here about the new MINI Controller dial which will be located near the gear stick, giving the driver the possibility of controlling the infotainment options easier, while the instrument cluster is also fitted behind the steering wheel. On top of that, a head-up display, a collision and pedestrian warning system, or the backup camera, will also be available on the model.
