  • 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)
    New engines including 1.2 and 1.5-litre three-cylinder and 2.0 litre. More refined and better steering feel plus much more fun to drive than previous MINI.
