Ownership cost

What used Mini Hatchback hatchback will I get for my budget?

Around £6000 is the entry point to the Mini club. Up the ante to between £8000 and you’ll find a good number of three or five-door cars dating from 2016. Spend between £8000 and £10,000 on cars from 2017 and 2018, and between £12,000 and £15,000 on post-facelift 2019 models. You'll need between £16,000 and £22,000 for the later 2020 cars.

CO2 emissions

Go for the 1.5-litre diesel for the lowest emissions because it only puts out 95g/km of CO2. Next up is 1.5-litre petrol with 109g/km, then the 1.2-litre petrol and 2.0-litre diesel that both emit 112g/km.

The performance-orientated Cooper S and John Cooper Works models do consume more fuel at a rate of 49.6mpg and 42.8mpg, respectively. and 133g/km, and 42.8mpg and 155g/km respectively.

After some model revisions in 2019 to deal with the introduction of the current WLTP fuel economy standards, the diesel engines were withdrawn from sale and the economy figures for the 1.5 and 2.0-litre petrols were revised to 52.3mpg and 43.5mpg respectively.

Road tax (VED)

Road tax for all models registered before 1 April 2017 will vary depending upon the emissions the engine produces, while examples registered after this date will have the same flat rate fee for cars that cost less than £40,000 when new. This is currently £150 a year. To find out more about the current road tax costs, click here.  

Servicing and insurance

Insurance groups are good for all Minis, with a range from a moderate 11 up to 30 for the racy John Cooper Works cars. Servicing plans are available as a monthly direct debit for all cars, and can cover MOTs, vehicle health checks, sat-nav updates as well as valets.
