AutoExpress Reviews The MINI Hatchbacks

The U.K.'s AutoExpress gives the MINI hatchbacks four out of five stars, with its favorite being the MINI Cooper D. Its summary:
For: Efficient diesel engines, sharp handling, excellent residuals
Against: Stiff suspension, high prices, cramped rear seats 

Engineered by BMW, the MINI Hatchback has always been an extremely high-quality product. Its retro styling and famous badge have helped it become a huge success in the sales charts too. The latest model is better than ever, with powerful but super-efficient petrol and diesel engines and sharp handling that puts more expensive machinery to shame. Things have become tougher for the MINI of late though, with the arrival of stylish rivals like the Audi A1 and Citroen DS3.
