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.

Decent rear passenger space
Well equipped

Cons

Noisy at speed
Top-spec models too expensive
