Produced by the British Motor Corporation, Mini started life as a range of small cars; it was only when BMW AG bought the marque in 1994 that it became a make in its own right. And thanks to its rich blend of style and affordability, Minis continue to be one of the most sought-after variants of car in the UK.
Fun-loving and retro, the iconic Mini is available in a range of body types: from hatchbacks to SUVs; coupes to convertibles, there’s a Mini out there for everyone. Which means it’s up to you what warranty you get for your specific model. No matter the shape or size of your Mini, you can relax knowing that you’re properly covered with MotorEasy.

Mini Reliability: A MotorEasy Study
The MotorEasy Reliability Index measures the dependability of a car, as an average of the frequency and cost of repairs for over 1,200 models. It reveals some of the hidden costs of ownership, as well as the likelihood of something going wrong.
