Two years ago, Mini was Automotive Management's car of the century - now BMW's charismatic reborn model is the editorial team's car of the year.
Automotive Management editor Tony Willard said: "Mini gets our award because it's exactly the sort of car every dealer wants in their showroom. It's true to the Mini legend in the way it looks and handles. Plus it comes with a great aftersales package."
AM's Emap Automotive sister publication Car magazine has awarded Mini a similar honour - editor Greg Fountain said: "It's brilliant - we love it." (December 11, 2001)
