The new generation of the Mini should be presented and shown to the public at the Frankfurt Motor Show, in September, but it seems someone was hiding in a pretty good spot and took this photos for us to see. In them we see a yellow Cooper S, another Cooper S, this time painted in gray, and what seems to be a regular Mini in red and white.
The front of the car is the one that got the biggest changes. The new Mini now has LED headlamps that remind me a bit of the Fiat 500L Trekking and their circular shape, new front grille and bumper, a more inclined windshield and larger tail lights.
Based on the "UKL" platform, it can have a front- or all-wheel drive system. The new Mini is also longer and wider, but what bothers me is the rather large front overhang, that is not how a Mini should be designed.
I am sure with this early reveal, BMW will be forced to officially show the new Mini.
