The Mini 3dr is a hugely desirable small car that has plenty of substance to match its style; if you want a premium small car, it should be on your shortlistread the full model review
Above One trim, it gets cosmetic tweaks such as body-coloured door mirrors and 15in alloy wheels. It is available with the sole 1.5-litre diesel engine or our pick of the range, the more powerful 1.5-litre petrol unit.
You get excellent fuel economy from this 114bhp, 1.5-litre, three-cylinder diesel. It’s the most refined diesel engine in a small car; sweet-revving and punchy, although it does feel a bit gutless at higher revs. Available with a six-speed manual or seven-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox.
