Approved Used MINI Hatch
About MINI Hatch
The MINI Hatch is an iconic model. This is the modern iteration of the classic retro Mini hatchback that was relaunched in 2001, and the first model released in partnership with BMW.
The first generation of the three-door MINI Hatch, the R50, was in production until 2006. A second generation (R56) followed from 2006 to 2014, and a third generation (F56) launched in 2014. A five-door version (F55) was also introduced in 2014. The MINI Hatch has been regularly updated since, and had a facelift in 2021.

Why buy a Used MINI Hatch?
A used MINI Hatch is one of the most popular, desirable and stylish compact hatchbacks on the road. It’s a MINI, so of course, it’s great fun to drive, backed by plenty of punch and power, and a great range of engines. It’s also a comfortable ride, with a premium interior and a generous amount of tech in the cabin.
The latest generation of used MINI Hatch models – from 2014 onwards – are the largest yet, with more internal space for passengers than earlier designs. Newer used MINI Hatch models that benefited from the 2018 facelift were fitted with additional features including Union Jack rear lights. A further refresh in 2021 means models from that year onwards have even more features and the very latest styling.
The exterior of the MINI Hatch is typically bold and vibrant, with models available in a series of striking colours. Some have racing stripes on the bonnet, others a bright white roof to contrast with the bodywork. A used MINI Hatch isn’t a car to blend in.
The interior has a quality feel and appearance, with comfortable seats finished in leather trim in selected models. The dashboard design is dominated by the large circular display; a homage to classic, retro Minis. Models from 2022 onwards have the excellent 8.8-inch infotainment system as standard. Control it by touching the screen, or via the clever rotary dial which is positioned between the two front seats. Older models need MINI’s Visual Boost Radio system to provide a 6.5-inch screen.
There’s an attractive selection of options available, so do check whether any additional packs are all included on the used MINI Hatch models for sale you view. Regardless, the standard equipment across the range is generous, especially on newer used MINI Hatch cars; automatic LED headlights, cruise control, parking sensors and keyless entry are all inclusive features.
*Key features of a used MINI Hatch can include:
- LED headlights
- Heated front seats
- Cruise control
- Multifunction controls on the steering wheel
- Rear parking sensors
- Sport seats
- Leather steering wheel
- Dynamic Stability Control
- MINI Connected
- Automatic air conditioning
- Enhanced bluetooth
For a compact car, the Hatch is sizable enough inside to seat four or five people, depending on the model. The three-door version, which is a four seater, requires passengers to slide the front seats forward to get to the rear of the car. The five-door Hatch, which is a five seater, has rear doors. There’s also a difference in boot size between the two variants. The three-door Hatch has 211 litres of space, while the five-door version is slightly larger at 278 litres.
When you buy a used MINI Hatch from Dick Lovett, not only do you get an approved model from an official MINI dealership, you also receive peace of mind with a minimum 12-month warranty. This covers unlimited mileage breakdown cover, and repair and labour costs on warrantable items – including the battery and exhaust.

Tips & Advice for Buying a Used MINI Hatch
Across the used MINI Hatch range there’s plenty of choice when it comes to engines, trims and option packs, which add even more features and functions to the car.
Diesel engines on the MINI Hatch were phased out in 2018, so options for buyers focus on the series of turbocharged petrol engines. Remember, too, that the MINI Electric is based on the Hatch so that’s another model to consider.
The entry level version is the MINI One. It has a 1.5 litre three-cylinder engine, capable of 102 hp, and 0-62mph acceleration of 9.9 seconds. Top speed is 121mph. The MINI One was discontinued in 2022 though, so won’t be available on the newest used models.
Next in the range is the MINI Cooper, also with a 1.5 litre three-cylinder engine but delivering 136hp and a maximum top speed of 130mph. It’s faster from 0-62mph, clocking 8.1 seconds.
The MINI Cooper S is more powerful, still. Its 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine has an output of 178hp and 0-62mph acceleration of 6.6 seconds; top speed is 146mph.
Topping the range is the John Cooper Works edition. It also has a 2.0-litre engine but ramps it up to 231hp and a top speed of 153mph, with a fast 0-62mph time of just 6.1 seconds. If performance is your No.1 priority, a JCW model is your top pick, though the five-door MINI Hatch is not available as a John Cooper Works model.
In addition to the model versions, there are three different trim levels. These are the Classic, Sport and Executive, and each come with varying equipment and spec. The Classic is the base level trim but has a great selection of standard features, including Bluetooth and DAB Radio, automatic headlights with rain sensor, and ambient lighting.
The Sport trim, as the title suggests, adds a sportier appearance to a used MINI Hatch, through a number of enhancements. Sport models get a John Cooper Works aerodynamic body kit, spoiler, sports buckets seats and sports suspension.
The Exclusive is set at the same price as the Sport, but it has a different focus. Instead of a sportier look, it’s all about luxury, with a leather interior, leather steering wheel and a stylish chrome exterior trim.
Whichever type of used MINI Hatch you choose to buy, at Dick Lovett we can support your purchase by offering a finance plan to suit your budget. With a Hire Purchase (HP) or Personal Contract Purchase (PCP) agreement, you make a fixed payment every month and either own the car outright at the end of the term, or have further options.
