The biggest Mini gets a smattering of updates for 2021. Its unmistakable appearance is now even more distinctive due to a restyled front end. LED lighting elements promote its British heritage through a Union Jack motif on the taillights. There's now a Piano Black Exterior option that replaces the Mini's chrome trim with gloss-black pieces. A set of fresh wheel designs as well as White Silver and Sage Green metallic paint colors are new too. Inside, the infotainment system's housing is redesigned with gloss-black material.

Pros
Well-built interior,
Mini character in a family size,
generous complimentary maintenance.

Cons
Neither quick or nimble,
plug-in hybrid is unremarkable,
lacks some popular driver assists.

A very competitive posh crossover, but it fumbles some of Audi's traditional strengths.

Pros
Lots of equipment and tech,
practical,
striking to look at

Cons
The powertrains,
HMI and materials aren't as polished as Audi's norm
