MINI Hatch Other 2.0 Cooper JCW Hatchback 3dr Petrol Manual (155 g/km, 231 bhp) Hatchback (2010 - ) expert review
The Mini John Cooper Works is a hot hatch that can thrill with its raw pace and its barnstorming handling in equal measure. It’s expensive to buy, especially if you’re not careful with the options list, and there are lots of other hot hatches available that are cheaper, more practical and better equipped. However, few have the JCW’s image, character or downright cheekiness, and for many buyers, that’ll be the deal-sealer. If you can afford it, you’ll absolutely love it.

MINI Hatch Cooper 1.5TD Cooper D Hatchback 5dr Diesel Manual (116 bhp) Hatchback (2014 - ) expert review
Small cars should be about style, fun, quality and practicality. The Mini hatch offers the first three traits in spades and is bursting with character but it can't match some rivals for the latter

MINI Paceman 1.6 (Chili) Cooper S Hatchback 3dr Petrol Manual (143 g/km, 184 bhp) Hatchback (2013 - ) expert review
The Paceman is one of the harder Minis to argue a case for, but it all boils down to style. If you like the way the Paceman looks, you’ll like the car

MINI Roadster 1.6 Cooper S Convertible 2dr Petrol Manual (139 g/km, 184 bhp) Convertible (2011 - ) expert review
The Mini Roadster has style in abundance, which is exactly what convertible buyers (and Mini buyers) love. It’s very good fun to drive, too, and it even has a usefully sized boot. One of our favourite small convertibles.

The two-seater Mini Coupe is the sportiest car in the Mini range. It’s not cheap, but it’s big on style and fun – just what Mini buyers love.

MINI Hatch First 1.6 First Hatchback 3dr Petrol Manual (127 g/km, 75 bhp) Hatchback (2010 - ) expert review
The MINI First is the cheapest BMW product available. It has the same virtues as more costly models, like great handling, strong used values and good build quality but with less equipment.

MINI Countryman 1.6TD One D Hatchback 5dr Diesel Manual (115 g/km, 90 bhp) Hatchback (2010 - ) expert review
The cheapest diesel Countryman majors on distinctive looks and impressively low running costs. The One D could be the perfect crossover for small families.

MINI Countryman 1.6 (Chili) Cooper ALL4 Hatchback 5dr Petrol Automatic (175 g/km, 122 bhp) Hatchback (2010 - ) expert review
The MINI Countryman is the first premium crossover, with a fine interior and drive. But, it isn't as good value or as practical as the Skoda Yeti or Nissan Qashqai.

MINI Hatch One 1.6 One Hatchback 3dr Petrol Manual (127 g/km, 98 bhp) Hatchback (2006 - 2011) expert review
The MINI One is more desirable than most small premium cars, with its cheeky looks, great build and engaging dynamics. But don’t buy one if you want to stand out from the crowd.

MINI Hatch Cooper 1.6 Cooper Hatchback 3dr Petrol Manual (122 bhp) Hatchback (2010 - ) expert review
The Mini Cooper is a real driver’s car and style icon in a pint-sized package. Space is at a premium, both for passengers and luggage though.

The MINI Clubman Concept showcases a very different take on the more-spacious-MINI recipe than the outgoing model. It’s 260mm longer, 170mm wider and 25mm taller, which should make it much more family-friendly.
