Official Release: The MINI 5-door Hatch has been awarded Best Compact SME Company Car in Business Car Manager’s SME Company Car of the Year awards 2016.

Judged against its competitors by an independent panel, the 5-door Cooper D Hatch was recognised by the experts for its low CO2 emissions of just 95 g/km, translating into low running costs for and high residual values for business drivers.

Ralph Morton, editor, Business Car Manager, said: “Not only does the MINI have emotional appeal by the bucketload, but it now has the practicality to make it count in business terms. But it’s not just the practicality that counts – it’s the running cost numbers behind it.

“For the company car driver, there’s all the benefits of driving a MINI, but none of the financial burden with company car tax from under £50 a month. So the MINI 5-door Hatch proves a winner on all levels.”

Introduced to the market in September 2014, MINI 5-door Hatch symbolises the brand’s renewed focus on attracting corporate customers. Sporting two extra rear doors, the MINI 5-door also has improved legroom, a third rear seat and a larger boot for improved practicality.

James Morrison, Corporate Development Manager at MINI UK said: “We are extremely pleased to be taking home the award for Best Compact SME Company Car.

“MINI Cooper D 5-door Hatch is a great family car and a practical offering for business customers. We have seen the 5-door Hatch grow in popularity since its launch, particularly within the all-important corporate and fleet market.”

As an F56 owner where the F55 would have been more practical for when my kids/friends have a ride, I still can't reconcile myself to the side profile of the 5-door.

Not sure what it is. But IMHO it's not a Mini...

Surely then nor is your F56 a Mini as its huge compared to the original Mini - just saying :)

I know that looks are subjective but I think the F55 is the best looking 5 door in its class and the most fun to drive too
