More Information MINI Cars:

Minis have been manufactured by the English company British Motor Corporation since 1959, and its successors still continue to manufacture them today. It is considered one of the most important pieces of British popular culture of the 1960s. 

In its construction, the car used a space-saving transverse engine and front-wheel-drive layout, allowing the passenger compartment to occupy almost 80% of the floorplan. This concept influenced a whole generation of carmakers.

According to a poll conducted by Automotive News, in 1999, the Mini was voted the second most influential car of the 20th century, behind only the Ford Model T. The Volkswagen Beetle and Citroen DS were ranked third and fourth.

The Mini, now commonly referred to as simply MINI, is a car brand from the United Kingdom, owned by BMW since 2000, and used for several small models. The word Mini has been used in car model names since 1959, and in 1969 it became a marque in its own right when the name "Mini" replaced the separate "Austin Mini" and "Morris Mini" car model names. BMW acquired the famous marque in 1994 when it acquired Rover Group (formerly British Leyland), which was the owner of Mini among others.

MINI's five basic models

3-Door Hatchback

The smallest MINI and closest to the original MINI experience, take corners like you are on a set of rails, a great ride and ideal for those travelling alone or with one passenger.

5-Door Hatchback

It’s the big brother of the 3-door, which gives you more convenience if you frequently travel with passengers in the rear. Plus, it still has that "stick to the road" agility, so it’s a pleasure to drive.

MINI Clubman

Clubman features the iconic split doors up the back and has a 270mm longer wheelbase than the five-door hatchback, meaning it offers some more legroom and adds extra boot space.

MINI Convertible

With the MINI convertible, you can take the top-down electrically, folding it in only 18 seconds.

MINI Countryman

Designed to appeal to SUV purchasers, the MINI Crossover features rugged, SUV-inspired styling with moulded wheel arches, a higher seating position, and optional 4-wheel drive.

With its generous boot space of 1,390 litres when the rear seats are folded down and 450 litres with the rear seats up, the Countryman is the best option if you want to fit some adults in the back.

Performance & Engine Options:

MINI ONE Models

One can be equipped on the 3-door and 5-door models or with the Classic style. It has a 1.5-litre petrol engine with 102 bhp. It reaches 62 mph in just under 10 seconds.

MINI Cooper Models

This in-house 1.5-litre engine provides 136bhp and great fuel economy (52mpg combined). It can cover 0 to 62mph in an impressive 8 seconds and fuel economy up to 52mpg.

MINI Cooper D Models

Mini Cooper D looks even better than it performs, thanks to a 2.0-litre 150bhp twin-turbo, 4-cylinder diesel engine delivering excellent fuel economy and 0-62mph times around 9 seconds.

MINI Cooper S (Petrol) Models

A performance option with all MINI models, the Cooper S offers a powerful 2.0-litre (192bhp), twin-turbo engine that achieves top speeds of up to 146mph.

MINI Cooper S (Plug-in Hybrid) Models

The MINI Countryman Plug-in Hybrid has an electric range of up to 26 miles and is comparable in performance to the Cooper S petrol model, but it has a lower top speed of 123 miles.
