MINI Hardtop


Relaunched in 2002 by new owner BMW, the iconic British Mini brand traces its roots to 1959. New Minis retain a family resemblance to the brand’s original, influential front-wheel-drive cars. While Mini has since ventured into other classes, such as crossovers, the revived car started off as a two-door hatchback; convertible, coupe and four-door versions came later.

Minis are known for their numerous personalization options and appearance packages. The next redesign is slated for 2021.
