Mini Hatchback Lease

Retro charm meets sophisticated modern technology with a MINI hatchback lease, a car that never gets old despite having decades of history under its belt.

The MINI hatchback is available in two distinct forms - as a three-door or five-door model - and while both cars are compact, you might be pleasantly surprised with the amount of interior space that they offer.

We’re focusing here on the petrol-powered MINI hatchback. If you want to go electric, head to our MINI Cooper Electric pages.

It’s available to lease in myriad trim levels and special editions, so you really can pick the model that’s best-suited to you. 

And no matter which version you choose, the MINI hatchback will be seriously well-equipped. A heavily revamped MINI Cooper hatchback arrived in 2024, bringing with it a 9.4-inch OLED touchscreen complete with 'Spike', your very personal voice assistant. 

If you really want to make the most of a MINI’s trademark ‘Go-Kart’ handling, you’ll want to lease a John Cooper Works model, which comes with power of 231 hp and aggressive exterior styling.

About the MINI hatchback

While the first ever MINIs hit British roads back in the 1950s, the one you can lease today is underpinned by precision German engineering, with BMW having relaunched the marque back in 2001.

The BMW ownership is important - because it means the MINI enjoys sophisticated engines with real pulling power as well as slick, precision gearboxes that truly increase driving pleasure.

The first 5-door MINI hatchback arrived in 2014, sitting on a longer wheelbase than the 3-door variant, and gives more room in the rear for passengers as well as a larger boot.

The only downside to the 5-door MINI hatch is that it’s not available in the raucous John Cooper Works grade.

Why lease a MINI hatchback?

You lease the MINI hatchback because you want timeless exterior design as well as go-kart handing to put a smile on your face.

The MINI hatch enjoyed a major refresh in 2024, which gave the pocket-rocket modern new lines and more sophisticated tech.

While the MINI might not be the biggest car in the supermini class, what it lacks in stature it makes up for in the fun stakes.

And because the MINI is so compact and lightweight, even the performance engines return pleasing levels of fuel economy.

Which MINI hatchback powertrain is right for me?


A 1.5-litre unit is the entry level powertrain and the latest models come with 156 hp. The Cooper S powertrain has added oomph at 204 hp, while the John Cooper Works models benefit from a 2.0 litre engine with 231 hp.

Which MINI hatchback trim level should I lease?

Not including the special editions, there are three main grades - Cooper, Cooper S, and John Cooper Works - as well as trims within those levels, too.

We had a slightly shaky start due to our account manager going off sick and the ball being dropped but when Garry R. took over, it was progressed quickly and efficiently so thank you. Delivery of my Tesla was very quick. Overall, the process was relatively short, helped by a swift delivery timeframe from Tesla.

Very responsive service, regular updates and calls from Sam Spencer and explained all the processes and stages really well. Very easy to talk to and ask questions and not made to feel like was being a difficult customer. The main office and Amber McDonnell have been great as well!
