MINI Reviews

New Cars
Good: More interior space and larger boot. Same engine line-up as standard hatch. Just as good to drive as three-door. More family friendly.
Bad: Still not the last word in practicality. Optional extras quickly add up.
Good: Now a proper estate with two rear doors. More upmarket interior than standard MINI hatch. Good sized boot has plenty of room for a pushchair. One D is very economical. The best MINI in the range.
Bad: Top models are very pricey.
Good: Four seats and a true convertible roof. Fun to drive. Good range of engines.
Bad: Creaky roof. Back seats are small. Gusty cabin with top down. Options can push up price.
Good: Enjoyable handling. Great exhaust note. Impressive performance. Well made. Packed with character.
Bad: Expensive especially with optional extras. Impractical back seats.
Good: New engines including 1.2 and 1.5-litre three-cylinder and 2.0 litre. More refined and better steering feel plus much more fun to drive than previous MINI.
Bad: Still really a two-plus-two. Poorer visibility than predecessor. Lower driving position might not suit all.
Good: Biggest ever MINI. Upmarket and comfortable interior. Good to drive. Available as a plug-in hybrid.
Bad: Much more expensive to buy new. Firm ride. Most of the smart kit is an optional extra.
