As the leading premium small car brand on the market, MINI leads the way in terms of quality, performance and style.

Harking back to the classic design of the original Mini Cooper combined with modern technology and style, the current MINI range is the clear leader of the small car sector.

Now MINI has been voted the best ‘City Car/Small Car’ by German car magazine ‘Auto Zeitung’ in a public vote for the ‘Auto Trophy 2016’, beating many of its high profile rivals. The British brand garnered 18.6 per cent of the votes from the general public, and beat 17 rivals to the award of best small car brand.

This accolade is mainly down to the brand’s excellent advancements in technology, ride comfort and engine efficiency, as well as driving assistance features, premium fittings and practicality. All of these combine to make the MINI range one of the most complete on the market.

The ‘Auto Trophy’ was awarded for the 29th time this year and to choose the winners across the 24 individual categories, over 60,000 readers across Bauer Media Group’s publications chose their individual winners, as well as choosing their favourites in terms of design and brand identity for special prizes.
