MINI wins big with a double at the Auto Express Awards
MINI has had another successful year at the Auto Express Awards. The MINI Hatch was awarded ‘Best Premium Small Car’ for the third year running, while the new MINI Convertible was awarded the publication’s ‘Best Convertible’ title. Steve Fowler, editor-in-chief, Auto Express said: “MINI Hatch… provides the benchmark in terms of style, quality, desirability and driving thrills, while being great value for money. And now it's been joined by the MINI Convertible as a winner, too, a car that shares all of the MINI's winning attributes with an added dose of fun.”
Starting at £14,075, the MINI 3-door Hatch is jam packed with style and technology and has been the best small premium car around since it was introduced in 2014 – the same year Auto Express named it ‘Car of the Year’. The MINI 5-door Hatch offers the same great style and driving dynamics, but with an extra dose of usability thanks to a 72mm longer wheelbase. Introduced in March 2016, the new MINI Convertible is more dynamic, stylish, practical and refined than ever before – and the previous MINI Convertible was the best-selling convertible vehicle in the UK. Priced from £18,475, it features a fully electric roof that’s quieter and more refined, a boot some 25 per cent larger than before and more space for rear seat passengers. Not only that, but with MINI Visual Boost Radio, MINI Connected, Bluetooth, Rear Parking Distance Control and Rear Reversing Camera being standard across the range, it comes with more of everything compared to rivals.
