Our pick: 1.5 Cooper
There’s more to the third-generation MINI than meets the eye. While its looks are an evolution of past models, it’s bigger and more refined than ever, and there’s an all-new turbocharged engine line-up.
This includes three-cylinder petrol and diesel engines that were engineered in-house by BMW for the first time. The MINI range comprises One, Cooper and Cooper S models, as well as the Cooper D and Cooper SD diesels.
The bold new interior retains plenty of retro touches, and standard kit includes air-con, Bluetooth and DAB radio.
