    MINI (Mk III -F56) 2014-

    • All-new MINI Hatch unveiled at Plant Oxford
    • Contemporary evolution of classic MINI design, with improved features and higher quality
    • Debut of new ground-breaking three-cylinder engines
    • State-of-the-art connectivity and premium technology, including new driver assistance equipment
    • New interactive display concept using LEDs
    • Outstanding MINI handling makes it even more fun to drive
    • Built in Oxford with the UK market launch in Spring 2014
    • Pricing from £15,300 OTR



    MINI has today unveiled the new MINI Hatch, the car which has defined a segment since 2001.

    Even though the new MINI is instantly recognisable – something which comes from having such a globally identifiable design – the car is completely new from the ground up. Every component has been back to the drawing board in an effort to optimise its function, performance and style.

    The result is ‘The New Original’, a MINI which is distinctly familiar but enhanced in every single way. It features significant improvements in technology, engine efficiency and power delivery, driving dynamics, quality and – of course – personalisation. Inside, the new MINI Hatch is quieter than the outgoing model, with improvements to acoustic refinement inside the cabin.

    The new MINI Hatch is more spacious than before, safer, finished to an even higher standard and provides the driver with a more dynamic and performance-oriented experience behind the wheel.

    Inside the cabin, new technology ensures that the new MINI is the most connected car in its segment. A new LED display concept, the first of its kind, provides the driver with visual feedback whilst operating the car and creates a premium ambience. It reflects a maturity and confidence in the brand’s design and engineering, a car which pays tribute to its unique British heritage yet stands ready to lead MINI into the second half of the decade and beyond.

    And I'm not talking about the difference between this and the original '59 version.

    It's ginormous and a bit horrible, but I have to say the tech is moderately interesting, and it should drive brilliantly.

    If only it wasn't so chintzy.

    And a van, and Mini flatbed pickup and a crossover, and so it goes on...
    Lack of charisma can be fatal.
    Visca Catalunya!

    You meant to say a 4 door Clubman, because the current one has only 3 doors.
    And the Countryman is a totally different vehicle. (midsize SUV for european standards)

    Another Mini using leftovers from the BMW i3.

    Fully electric Mini Cooper SE. Range is about 250 km, prices start just under €40,000.

    Distinctive alloy wheels were initially called "Corona Spoke". Now they are renamed for obvious reasons.
