When voting on the “Best Cars 2020”, the British original was once again able to win the import rating in its vehicle category in the premium segment of small cars. For readers of the trade magazine “auto, motor und sport” it remains the most popular import vehicle in the “small car” category. The MINI accounted for 23.2 percent of the votes cast. For the 44th time, the “auto, motor und sport” editorial team had asked its readers to choose their favorites on four wheels. More than 103,000 participants cast their votes. They chose the “Best Cars 2020” from a total of 387 current models. All winners of the overall and import rankings were honored today at a ceremony in the International Congress Center Stuttgart (ICS). MINI can look back on a particularly long success story in the readers’ choice of “auto, motor und sport”. Immediately after the relaunch of the brand in 2001, the model of the traditional British automobile manufacturer won the import rating of its class for the first time. After achieving its first successes in the “Mini Cars” category, the MINI has been in the “Small Cars” category since 2015. He also won the import rating there six times in a row: unique driving pleasure, distinctive design and a multitude of options for customization characterize the character of the original in the premium segment of small cars. The MINI 3-door and the MINI 5-door, which are available in four model variants each with petrol engines that are as powerful as they are efficient, also share the latest victory. The 170 kW / 231 hp MINI John Cooper Works (combined fuel consumption: 7.1 – 6.9 l / 100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 162 – also fulfills the desire for extreme driving pleasure and an independent style inspired by racing). 157 g / km) and the new MINI John Cooper Works GP (combined fuel consumption: 7.3 l / 100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 167 g / km), whose four-cylinder turbo engine even develops a maximum output of 225 kW / 306 hp , The two-seater, produced in a limited edition of 3,000 units, will thus become the fastest model of the British brand ever approved for road traffic.
