MINI has revealed this teaser picture of the upcoming all-new 2014 model. The car will be officially unveiled to the public at the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show and Tokyo Motor Show at the very same time. Both shows kick off on 22 November. The new MINI hatch will launch in Mzansi in the second half of 2014.
As you can tell from the silhouette under the stretched sock, MINI should retain its usual BMW-created shape, but feature brand new styling cues, including LED lights both front and rear. The other traditional bit to be kept is the round speedometer, but this time straight in front of the driver.
BMW has been developing new 1.5-litre turbo engines with varying power outputs of up to 165kW. We don’t know though, if this mill will make it into the little one, or if the 1.6-litre will be kept instead.
