The Auto Trader expert verdict:
Available new from £22,565
It may be a familiar sight on our roads but the Mini Hatch remains a distinctive choice when compared with more conventional superminis. After detail changes in 2018, this 2021 model year update tidies up the looks of the car with new bumper designs front and rear, revised trim and updated technology inside, including a nifty digital instrument cluster. There are detail changes under the skin but, otherwise, the engines remain more or less as before. Available in three- and five-door forms, the Mini is as fun to drive as ever but equipment levels look a little mean and you have to pay extra for navigation and even CarPlay.
