First drive: MINI Coupe

Martyn Collins

With MINI sales seeming to buck market trends and showing an increase of 14% year on year, it's time for the fastest growing premium brand to launch its fifth model - the Coupe.

On sale from 1 October, the new two-seater already accounts for 3% of this year's sales. That's quite impressive, as buyers won't even have had the chance to drive the MINI Coupe yet.
