For The Mini Hatch is stylish, classy and fun to drive. It’s also affordable to own, thanks to strong resale values and low running costs.

Against The ride is firm and there are much more practical cars available for similar money.

Buyer's notes

Target Price team says:

Compare the Mini Hatch with most other small cars and it looks expensive. Few rivals are as fun to drive or as stylish, though, and hardly any can match the Mini’s massive desirability, which results in incredibly strong resale values.

The Cooper S is certainly worth a look if you’re after a hot hatch, but it’s the Cooper that really impresses, combining strong performance with seriously low running costs.

There’s a dizzying array of optional extras to choose from, so you can really tailor the car to your tastes. There are also a number of option packs available, which add a heap of extras in one fell swoop for a discounted price, and nearly all Mini buyers add at least one of these.

We’d recommend adding one of the TLC servicing packages, too. For a reasonable one-off fee, this covers servicing for the first five years or 50,000 miles. The TLC XL package costs a little more, but covers servicing for a further three years or 30,000 miles.
