2014 MINI Convertible spied again, this time on the road

We saw the first spy shots of the new MINI Convertible last month, when a prototype was caught on a flatbed truck in Germany. Here we have new photos, showing the next-generation MINI Cabrio on the road in Munich.

The new MINI hatch was revealed last month with a new front-wheel-drive platform architecture. New model is 98mm longer, 44mm wider and 7mm taller, while the wheelbase has been stretched by 42mm to 2495mm compared to the outgoing model. The front track is wider by 42mm and the rear by 34mm.

The design does not offer any big surprises and is evolution of the previous generation model.

From launch three engines will be offered:
-134bhp 1.5-litre 3-cylinder petrol
-114bhp 1.5-litre 3-cylinder diesel
-189bhp 2.0-litre 4-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine

The open top MINI has a different roof line at the rear because of the soft top roof system, but rest of the car is identical to the already revealed hatch, so there are no big surprises.

The new MINI Convertible is expected to debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March just in time for summer driving.
