Mini is the brand that’s known for being as British as the Queen’s Corgis. The original is considered an icon of 1960s British popular culture influencing a generation of car manufacturers. But the brand’s recent success has been down to Germany’s BMW, which rebirthed Mini in 2000, leading to the small hatchback becoming one of the best-selling cars in its British ‘homeland.’
The newest Mini iteration in its hatchback form comes either with a conventional engine or an electric one. The choices don’t stop there either, as you can either opt for a traditional three-door model or go for the 5-door version of the hatchback, depending on how often you’re likely to be using the rear seats for passengers.
The Mini Cooper should really be in a class of its own for many reasons.
The third-generation model’s styling harks back to the original Mini of 1959, but it’s much bigger than its miniature ancestor & so competes against the likes of the desirable Audi A1, steadfast Volkswagen Polo, & the equally retro Fiat 500 - but it's often far more entertaining & characterful than any of those alternatives.
On the other hand, the Mini is not as practical as competitors & can get very expensive very quickly due to its customisability.
“The iconic MINI 3-door Hatch embodies the essence of Mini, with its low-centre-of-gravity & exhilarating go-kart feel. It’s available with innovative technology to make navigating easier, with optional features like Apple CarPlay, real-time traffic information & online search functionality.”
