Three is the magic number: The MINI Hatch has triumphed for a third consecutive year at the Auto Express Awards.​

Alongside its stylish Convertible sibling, the MINI Hatch has reigned supreme at the Auto Express Awards 2016; for the latter, it marked 3 years at the top spot.

The MINI Hatch was named ‘Best Premium Small Car’ for the third year in a row, with the new MINI Convertible rolling away with the title of ‘Best Convertible’. At the forefront of style and quality, the MINI Hatch and MINI Convertible are packed with character; combined with their excellent value for money, it’s no wonder that they continue to impress both customers and critics alike.

The MINI 3-door Hatch might be compact, but every inch is optimised with impeccable design and innovative features. MINI Connected allows seamless integration to online services such as Facebook and Twitter, while the illuminated centre console allows for a choice of up to 255 ambient hues.

Personalisation is a theme that runs throughout the MINI range. The MINI 5-door Hatch offers an extra 72mm on the wheelbase, to create a more spacious cabin and boot. The interior colours and wing-mirror caps are all fully customisable, with a choice of engines, too; the Cooper D offers a combined fuel economy of 78.5 mpg and CO2 emissions from 95 gkm, while the Cooper S Hatch can reach 62mph in a goosebump-inducing 6.8 seconds.

Vivacious and versatile, the MINI Convertible was released in March 2016, providing further tailoring to an already vibrant range. The electrical hood mechanism offers open-top enjoyment in just 20 seconds, while the rigid body and low centre of gravity unleash enviable dynamics. The engine is also packed with 90kw (122hp) of power at 6,000 rpm, providing an incredibly fun ride for both driver and passenger.
