If you think the all-new MINI Hatch looks remarkably like the previous one, then you’re not alone, although this one is completely new from the ground up. Larger but still MINI Bigger in every external direction, the new three-door Hatch will spawn a wide variety of models, including replacements for the current derivatives with the addition of a five-door hatchback.

Running costs

Fuel efficiency champion in the new MINI Hatch range is the 1.2-litre One D three-door, with a claimed average of 83.1mpg and CO2 emissions of just 89g/km, meaning no charge for VED car tax at 2014/15 rates.

Happily, picking the five-door model doesn’t mean you’ll suffer much in fuel consumption costs – it doesn’t drink very much more than the three-door. Likewise, there’s not much difference in CO2 emissions – see below for details.

The estimated fuel cost figure is a guide to how much this model will cost to fuel each year, so you can compare between cars. It's calculated by using the model's average mpg (calculated from both town centre and motorway driving) and the average fuel price. It's based on the following cost-per-litre: petrol 103p and diesel 109p. Prices are updated daily.

Summary Running Costs

Servicing period

The on-board computer decides when the MINI Hatch needs servicing depending on a variety of parameters based on the frequency and manner the car is driven.

Road tax (12 months)

£0.00 - £205.00

Vehicle excise duty (VED) varies according to the CO2 emissions and the fuel type of the vehicle. For cars registered after March 1st 2001 VED or road tax is based on the car's CO2 emissions. For cars registered before March 1st 2001 it is based on engine size.

Emissions summary

The most green MINI Hatch is the 1.2-litre One D three-door, with CO2 emissions of just 89g/km. Even the most polluting 2.0-litre Cooper S five-door has a respectable figure of 136g/km.

Generally, there’s a 3g/km difference between three- and five-door models. See the Facts and Figures section for more details.

Picking the automatic transmission means slightly higher CO2 emissions than sticking with a manual.

Switching the optional driving mode to ‘Green’ allows the engine to coast when the driver’s foot isn’t pressing the accelerator pedal, saving fuel and reducing emissions.
