As is well known, there are two parts to MINI history. The period where the brand was under the control of the British Motor Corporation (between 1959 and 2000). And the modern era since then which has seen the marque run and developed by BMW. In recent years, the Munich maker has gradually broadened the range beyond the straightforward three-door hatch. Today, that base hatch variant can also be had with five doors, plus there’s a chic Convertible model too. All three variants are good value as part of a MINI lease.
In recent years, the larger Focus-sized Clubman model has proved quite successful and is a favourite with those looking for MINI lease deals. The brand is represented in the small SUV segment by the Countryman, which is good value on MINI finance. Plus there’s the sporty three-door Paceman too. All models are available in potent ‘John Cooper Works’ guises and MINI’s ‘ALL4’ 4WD system is widely available across the line-up.
