The new Mini Cooper has its charms, being thoroughly stylish, powerful and – for the most part – good to drive. It has its flaws, but the Cooper has always appealed more to the heart than the head. Our favourite variant is the entry-level Cooper C. Sure, the Cooper S’s engine may be that bit stronger and smoother, but the S is no more fun or engaging to drive, unfortunately. What’s more, the C’s unit remains a treat.

Classic is the entry-level trim and offers relatively little in the way of personalisation options. You do get a Level 1 equipment package upgrade as standard with the Cooper SE, though.

If you can afford it, this Cooper SE version is worth the extra. It has a longer range than the entry-level Cooper E (officially up to 250 miles) and offers slightly faster acceleration.
