While the Cooper started selling in 1959, Mini didn't become a brand in its own right until 1969. It became part of BMW in 2000, where it remains to this day. Currently, the automaker produces several variations of bright-eyed small cars, including hatchbacks, wagons, convertibles and crossovers.
The Mini Clubman now packs up to 306 hp from a 2.0-liter turbo-four engine.
Well-equipped two-door variants start below $20,000 before destination.
The updated Clubman features new headlamp tech and can be outfitted with more "Union Jack" themed bits than ever before.
The stylish little wagon features a revised look, new lighting tech and many more customization options.
An early taste of Mini’s first electric production has us eager for seconds.
That should put it up against the Honda Civic Type R, which is good company.
It's just a bit more sensible than trying to daily drive the OG Mini.
The cars might be a little (or a lot) bigger now, but they're still pretty fun.
