MINI will unveil the next-generation Cooper on November, 18 at MINI Plant Oxford and shortly after at the Los Angeles and Tokyo Motor Show.
We have seen plenty of spy shots and teasers. MINI has even confirmed the engine details for the new Cooper, which include two 1.5-litre three-cylinder turbos – a 134bhp petrol with 220Nm of torque for the standard Cooper, and a 114bhp diesel with 270Nm for the Cooper D.
The Cooper S will use a new 189bhp 2.0-litre petrol turbo.
There will be also electrically adjustable dampers for the first time and the six-speed automatic can be equipped with the same GPS-guided gear selection system as the Rolls-Royce Wraith – the system can anticipate upcoming downshifts based on the type of road ahead of you.
Here we have the latest spy shots showing the Cooper and Cooper S with main disguise around the lights.
The Cooper S shows a centrally mounted exhaust, different bonnet with an air intake, different wheels and different bumpers.
