This car has been superseded by a newer model, click here to go to the latest MINI Hatchback review.

Parkers overall rating: 4.5 out of 5 4.5

The MINI has front, side and head airbags as standard and achieved the maximum five star crash rating for occupant protection in official Euro NCAP tests. Electronic stability control (including traction control) and an alarm are both optional on the One and First but Isofix child seat mounting points are fitted in the rear on all cars.

The MINI's boot is its real weak point. With just 160-litres of space it's even smaller than a Ford Ka and is only large enough to deal with a weeks shopping - you can forget about squeezing suitcases in. The rear seats do fold down which boosts carrying capacity while there's fairly decent cabin storage up front including two cupholders, but the door pockets are shallow and awkward to access.
