The Mini has won a top award for the 11th consecutive year.

The car scooped the Supermini of the Year title in the BusinessCar magazine awards with readers highlighting its design, running costs and low emissions along with strong second hand values.

Editor Paul Barker said: ““It’s a huge achievement and illustrates the massive appeal in the corporate sector for a car with the qualities that the business car market relies on.”

The accolade comes as the plant prepares to celebrate 100 years of continuous car production at the Cowley works in March.
