It’s a New Year and a new win for MINI, as the British brand is named best Supermini in The Sunday Times Top 100 Cars of 2016.
Fending off stiff competition in its category, the MINI Hatch was commended by The Sunday Times judges for its hi-tech engines coupled with its refined ride, road noise and comfort.
MINI Hatch’s build quality was also praised, with the judges commenting: “MINI has not lost its touch when it comes to creating a cabin that’s distinctive, luxurious and stylish.'
MINI 3-door Hatch starts from £13,935 and, with more space than ever before, has been finished to an even higher standard. First-for-class features such as LED headlamps and Emergency Calling (E-Call), as well as a suite of advanced three and four-cylinder engines ensures that it will stay ahead of its rivals for years to come.
Its larger sibling, the MINI 5-door joined the range in September 2014 and has been a runaway success since launch. As well as sporting two extra rear doors, the MINI 5-door has improved legroom, a practical third rear seat and larger boot.
