All-new but still original: Mini’s latest Hatch

Today (18 November) saw MINI unveil the all-new Hatch, which has apparently been “completely redesigned from the ground up”. Although it still looks surprisingly similar...

The name of the result is, slightly clunkily, ‘The New Original’, and among the multitudinous improvements and enhancements is the debut of three new three-cylinder engines, each with ‘TwinPower Turbo Technology’ – which is kind of self-explanatory.

As for the other changes, just assume that everything has been improved (better power delivery and driving dynamics, more efficiency and interactive technology, less noise and so on). Built in Oxford, and with the UK market launch planned for next spring, the new (well, new original) MINI will be priced from £15,300 OTR.
