Engines

1.5 Step Auto
The entry-level Mini gets a new 100bhp, 1.5-litre, three-cylinder engine available with a six-speed manual gearbox or seven-speed dual-clutch automatic. We have yet to drive it.
1.5 D
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.
2.0
Proper hot hatch pace from this 189bhp 2.0-litre engine, with the pop and crackle exhaust note to match. There is a bit of a surge as the turbo kicks in, though, and purchase and running costs are much higher than those for the equally fun Cooper model. Available with a six-speed manual or seven-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox.
Our pick
1.5
This 134bhp, 1.5-litre turbo petrol unit is smooth, quiet and punchy – even from low revs. It’s our favourite in the line-up.
