  • MINI Hatch 5-door (2014 on)
    More interior space and larger boot. same engine line-up as standard hatch, just as good to drive as three-door, more family friendly.
  • MINI Hatch (2014 on)
    More refined and better steering feel, much more fun to drive than previous MINI, excellent engines.
