2014 MINI Cooper spy video

Goes on sale 12 months from now

The new generation of the MINI Cooper has been spied while conducting some winter testing.

Set for an official unveiling sometime this year, the next generation of the MINI is scheduled to go on sale in March 2014. The car is being developed on BMW’s UKL platform which will underpin 10-12 compact MINI and BMW front-wheel drive models.

Compared to current generation, the new MINI is expected to grow in size and be offered with several engines, including a three-cylinder, 1.5-liter producing 128 hp (96 kW) and 148 hp (110 kW) offered in gasoline and diesel versions. It will also borrow the four-cylinder, 2.0-liter mill from the BMW 1-Series.

The more potent Cooper S is likely to use a 1.6-liter turbocharged gasoline engine with 178 hp (132 kW) and 217 hp (162 kW) in the John Cooper Works (JCW) model. Rumors are indicating MINI is collaborating with PSA for a hybrid front-wheel variant.
