Information about indicative premium ranges and comparisons

When we display the indicative Comprehensive premium range for a car make and model, or offer a comparison of how a model’s annual premium compares to Youi premiums for all models for that car brand, we adopt some important guidelines:

  • The information displayed is based on Youi internal data for Comprehensive policies sold for the make and model between 10 Nov 2023 and 10 May 2024.
  • To improve how useful our data is, we only calculate our average comparisons on models where Youi data is available on at least 10 sold Comprehensive policies for that model.
  • As you would expect, we get some higher or lower premiums based on different risk ratings, so the indicative range does not represent all Youi customers. 80% of applicable Comprehensive car premiums purchased by our customers fell within or below the indicative premium range shown.
  • Premiums and offers to insure are subject to rating & underwriting, and your own individual circumstances.

Interesting facts about MINI

The first MINI was launched in 1959

On 26 August 1959, the British Motor Corporation unveiled what was soon to become legendary: the MINI. The British engineer who was the mastermind behind the MINI was Alec Issigonis, who sought to create an economical car that offered a satisfying driving experience with agile handling. The MINI satisfied these criteria with the added bonus of making people smile wherever it went.1

MINI was acquired by BMW in 1994

MINI became part of the BMW Group in 1994. In 2001, the new MINI Cooper was launched, which propelled the MINI brand into the 21st century. The MINI Cooper introduced a whole new generation to the joys of the MINI, by combining the precision of German engineering with a contemporary take on the classic MINI design.1 

MINI was a racing trailblazer in the 1960s

When Alec Issignosis created his original design for the MINI, he made more room in the cockpit by pushing the wheels out to the corners, and turning the engine sideways to create more passenger space. These features ended up making the MINI a surprisingly good performance car, as the wide wheels and transverse engine enhanced its balance and grip on the racetrack.2

The MINI was voted ‘European Car of the Century’ in 1999

By the end of the 20th century, over 5 million Classic MINI vehicles had been sold around the world. Such was its popularity, a panel of 130 international automotive journalists voted the MINI as the ‘European Car of the Century’ in 1999. It only just missed out on the ‘Car of the Century’ title, which was given to the Ford Model T.2
