The Cowley plant in Oxford has just hosted the global unveiling of the all-new Mini. The British-built hatch has been a massive success since the brand was resurrected in 2001. The new car remains true to Mini's design DNA but also gets a cabin that feels even more upmarket. It's sure to become a very common sight on Britain's roads.
For £6000 you can pick up a second-generation Mini hatch. It's great fun to drive, stylish and costs peanuts to keep on the road.
More than 300 Minis are listed in the What Car? Approved Used classifieds. Here's our pick of the bunch:
Entry-level First trim was added to the Mini range in 2009. It's less powerful than the One and the Cooper versions and does without some niceties such as air-conditioning and alloy wheels. It's still good to drive, though, and this '10/10 car with 23,000 miles on the clock is a bargain at £7995.
The Mini One is fun to drive and cheap to run, averaging 53.3mpg. This metallic blue version is the cheapest model in the classifieds. It's on a 57-plate and has done 71,000 miles. You can buy it for just £6000.
Mini One D

Cooper models offer loads of thrills. The 1.6-litre petrol engines powers the Mini to 62mph in 9.2 seconds but is still surprisingly economical, averaging 52.3mpg. This 10-plate car is being sold for £8990 and has done 33,000 miles.
