The Mini 3-door Hatch is a hugely desirable small car that has plenty of substance to match its style. We’d recommend a peppy yet frugal Cooper in Exclusive trim to make the most of its biggest strength, its well-appointed interior. It's disappointing that automatic emergency braking is optional, and it's worth pointing out that there are plenty of safer small cars. If practicality is high on your list of must-haves, though, we’d point you in the direction of the even more impressive Audi A1.

Classic is the entry-level trim and offers relatively little in the way of personalisation options. We'd recommend adding the Level 1 equipment package.

Go for the entry-level Cooper E and you'll get a single 181bhp electric motor driving the front wheels. That gives surprisingly nippy acceleration (0-62mph in 7.3sec), but the official range of 190 miles is a bit disappointing.
