According to a recent report, the MINI Roadster will feature a manual soft top.

While this is a tad disappointing, if true, it seems to make sense considering the manual roof will be easier to integrate into the Roadster's compact body. Furthermore, the traditional setup will be lighter than an automatic roof but we're willing to bet a few consumers would take the weight penalty for the extra convenience.

The MINI Roadster is expected to debut at the Frankfurt or Geneva Motor Show, so stay tuned for official details.
