Mini Frequently Asked Questions
With go-kart handling, retro styling, German engineering and an all-round package guaranteed to put a smile on your face, leasing a Mini should be a heap of fun. But it’s important not to pigeonhole Mini, a brand that has been part of the BMW group since 2000. Because there’s so much more to enjoy than just the three or five-door Mini hatchback. The more spacious Mini Clubman and Countryman can be had with all-wheel-drive and perform perhaps surprisingly well off-road. The Mini Electric has a range of up to 145 miles between charges. While the range of Mini John Cooper Works hot-hatches up for grabs will delight your inner petrolhead.
When it comes to popular Mini models, you can’t look much further than the three and five door hatchbacks. The base Mini Cooper offers power of 136 hp and decent fuel economy, while the Mini Cooper S uses a powerful 2.0 litre engine to whip you along at pace. The MIni Countryman is also a popular choice, being a Mini that’s not really ‘mini’ at all. The compact SUVhas good legroom in the rear for adults and also boasts a practical 450 litre boot, which isn’t too far away from the luggage space offered in a Nissan Qashqai.
That BMW know-how has paid off - the Mini is an exceptionally safe manufacturer to lease. The Mini Countryman recently received the full five stars from Euro NCAP, the industry standard safety assessment body. And what’s reassuring here is the amount of driver assistance and safety kit you get as standard, even with entry-level models. The base Countryman - which can also be had as a plug-in hybrid - comes with cruise control, rear parking sensors, and Mini’s ‘Emergency Call’ system, which automatically sends a distress call to the BMW Group Call Centre should you have a nasty prang.
The most affordable Mini to lease is the three-door Cooper hatchback in ‘Classic’ trim - and it’s a great alternative to cars like the Audi A1, the Volkswagen Polo or the Ford Fiesta. And while it’s affordable, it’s also still really well specced compared with rivals. The base ‘Classic’ Cooper gets heated front seats, ambient lighting, rear parking sensors, cruise control and full phone integration.
When you think ‘Mini’, your mind might automatically jump to the classic three-door hatchback. But there are so many other Minis available in the modern range, from the spacious Countryman SUV to the highly desirable, and high-performance, ‘John Cooper Works’ range - a trim level available with the Hatch, Convertible, Countryman and Clubman estate. In terms of affordability, the base ‘Classic’ hatch is in the same monthly lease price bracket as the Volkswagen Polo, Ford Fiesta, Vauxhall Corsa, and Nissan Juke.
I contact select car leasing after I had seen a particular deal that looked to be in stock and the price was competitive. I was able to find out that the car was indeed in stock (always worth checking) in particular colours and in the country too which meant we were able to take delivery of the car in around 3 weeks which was great as we needed it as soon as possible.
Ross Hamilton, the agent who looked after the whole process was incredibly professional and communicated really well to ensure that I was kept up to date. Even when my delivery was delayed due to the car having some damage, he ensured that I was kept informed, and helped me to get Mercedes to supply a hire car.
First class from start to finish. Adam understood our requirements and worked hard to accommodate in a very difficult climate. Highly recommended!
