Interior

The interior layout, fit and finish

Mini’s trademark quirky dials and toggle switches remain, and each feels solidly put together, working with a satisfying click. In terms of visual appeal and perceived quality, it’s way above the Cupra Ateca’s interior, with smart details such as contrast stitching on its leather steering wheel. There are still scratchy plastics lower down the centre console, but coloured gloss-plastic trim details help distract attention on the most part.

Like all versions, the JCW gets an infotainment system with a 6.5in screen and sat-nav, and you can upgrade to an 8.8in touchscreen with a sharper display as part of the Navigation Plus Pack. Both use a rotary dial between the seats that makes controlling the infotainment system easy, and the optional head-up display can be used to select radio stations and view sat-nav prompts without taking your eye from the road ahead.
