Like its 3-door and Convertible stablemates, the 5-door MINI gains a thorough design refresh. There’s room for five inside the appealing cabin and the boot takes up to 941 litres of luggage (278 litres with the rear seats up). Front and rear LED lights are among the striking new features, with the rear taillights gaining a Union Jack motif.


MINI’s safety features include Dynamic Stability and Traction Control to provide the optimum grip on all driving surfaces, with Dynamic Stability Control intervening to keep the vehicle on line by applying braking force to individual wheels. The optional MINI Driving Assistant offers a camera-based active cruise control to monitor traffic in front and apply the brakes if it slows.


For the 2018 models, the 1.2-litre petrol MINI One powertrain has been replaced by a three-cylinder 1.5-litre Twin-Power turbo petrol engine. This is the most efficient petrol engine with 57.6mpg in the combined cycle and 112g/km CO2. Cooper and Cooper S engines are 1.5 and 2.0 litres respectively. There’s also a 134bhp diesel engine for the Cooper One D delivering 99g/km CO2 and a combined mpg of 76.3.


Standard equipment on the MINI 5-door includes a multi-function steering wheel and a 6.5in colour infotainment screen with Bluetooth connectivity. This can be upgraded with sat-nav and Apple CarPlay smartphone mirroring. The Navigation Plus upgrade has a larger 8.8in screen and adds wireless mobile phone charging, real-time traffic information and other connected services.
