The convertible version will likely offer the same engines from the current line up. This means internationally the car will be offered with the 95 HP 1.4-liter, 120HP 1.6-liter and 175 HP turbocharged 1.6-liter gasoline engines and a 110 HP 1.6-liter turbo diesel engine (likely only versions of the 1.6-liter gas engine in the U.S.)

Instead of having to wait for the dealership to install the high performance John Cooper Works package, the R57 convertible will have the JCW package available from the factory as an option. It will also still be available with the dealer installed JCW engine kit.
