I agree Mini Coopers should always look classic and smaller than this.I dont really like Mini Coopers anyway, just BMW.
Yaseen Essack Jul 23, 2013
Evolution just as the golf is doing
Gustavo Kelso Jul 03, 2013
Needs to be much smaller
Jacob Burford Jul 02, 2013
I like Mini, but they need to take a different route with there cars.
Ilya Kravchik Jul 02, 2013
Looks the same, oh wait it has a hideous long nose now
David Lee Jul 02, 2013
It's a Mini, not a 7 Series. Why is there a massive overhang. What are you doing, BMW!?
Oleg Odessit Jul 02, 2013
Legendary like Porsche? Since when? Since Bmw bought em?
Justin Harris Jul 02, 2013
I'm with victor. Mini is a legendary brand like Porsche. Would kinda suck if they didn't stick with the classic formula.
Oleg Odessit Jul 02, 2013
But wait. There is more. Now it has that very "useful" spoiler at back, greattt
Victorio Lopes Jul 02, 2013
Guys, mini's idea isn't for changing, they want to keep the original design, just like porsche...
peter.sauer.940 Jul 02, 2013
wow it looks nothing like a mini !! who would have known (
Jonathan Romero Jul 02, 2013
Wow look how different it looks -____-

Hood scoops not air intakes...
Description: The 1.5-liter inline-three will feature a twin-scroll turbo, direct injection and variable valve timing, and will be good for 120 to 200 horsepower. The BMW engine will be tuned to closer to 300 hp in...

It's their inline6 3.0 turbo cut in half but with equal horsepower. Hmmm...
Andrew Palmer Jul 02, 2013
300 horses out of the hi-po variant. 1.5 liter 3cylinder, wow
Frankie Ferreira Jul 02, 2013
The fact that the NA inline 3 will have the same power as the NA inline 4 with the same displacement is impressive
Devin Stair Jul 02, 2013
Woah guys, a 1.5 liter inline 3, we're dealing with some real power here.
Nick Sti Jul 02, 2013
Yeah 3 cylinder turbos sound like flat 6's. I love the sound they make!
Chris Woller Jul 02, 2013
Just think of how light that will be with 3-cylinder engines. As long as they can really get 200+ horse and make it sound sporty, sweet.
Gustavo Kelso Jul 03, 2013
That car looks great!
abolishthepenny Jul 02, 2013
Look me in the eye and say that that car looks good.
Tanton Stoneman Jul 02, 2013
No I haven't, I have been in one though. The guy went to check his speedo and almost drove into a pole. I'm not ruling out the fact that he is an idiot, I just gave him the benefit of the doubt and blamed it on the speedo because its also hideous IMO.
Michael Russell Jul 02, 2013
Tanton have you drove one? There is another digital speedo built in the tach which is right above the steering wheel. Truthfully how often do you look at your speedo?
Callum Russell Jul 02, 2013
Rocketman inspired headlights
Tanton Stoneman Jul 02, 2013
It's a mini. It still has a speedometer in the middle which I think is dangerous, so it's still a car I will never drive. I mean, why would they think that looking over to your right to,see how fast you were going was a good idea?!
Jul 02, 2013
Not fan of it... but I think this isn't bad at all (not good either)
Ethan Amo Jul 02, 2013
YES they're finally bringing back the yellow paint
Carlton Salmon Jul 02, 2013
I don't like the amount of overhang on the front or the thick rubber strip across the grille. Otherwise it looks okay.
Luke Purdy Jul 02, 2013
Seriously not sure about those headlights
Guo-Sheng Huang Jul 02, 2013
Hate the overhang.
Braxton Omgbased Booker Jul 02, 2013
Looks like a cat fish who just walked in to its surprised birth day party
Kieran Ward Jul 02, 2013
@Edward. Hahahaha lol... That's the best thing I've heard all day
Edward Galligan Jul 02, 2013
It's like Joan rivers, it was fine before the facelift but now it's completely ruined.
Oleg Odessit Jul 02, 2013
Mini on LSD
Aadil Hafiz Jul 02, 2013
The grill looks tragic. If they maybe shortened the overhang and made the bumper more flat like the current car the grill maybe could look better. The lights aren't bad TBH. Hope it looks better in real life.
Daniel Zizka Jul 02, 2013
It looks like it drunk to much coffee
Gary Alaina Jul 02, 2013
I like it. Just not a fan of those gay halo light rings.
Joe Talerico Jul 02, 2013
More of a surprised look now. :0
Craig Smith Jul 02, 2013
Not liking that overhang. The beauty of minis of old was that the wheels were positioned as close to the corners as possible giving them that authentic go kart handling experience.
Rohil Chauhan Jul 02, 2013
It looks shit.
Andy Clouthier Jul 02, 2013
It's rather awful looking.
Oleg Odessit Jul 02, 2013
Yeahh, not liking this at all
Callum Russell Jul 06, 2013
Agreed!
Tyler James Davis Jul 03, 2013
It stares at you with it's fisheyes from every angle...
Matt Close Jul 02, 2013
I own a mini... This is hideous... Dammit BMW!
Devin Stair Jul 02, 2013
No camo huh?
Luke Purdy Jul 02, 2013
The back looks promising
Edward Galligan Jul 02, 2013
It's like a clubman for god sake
Jason Ware Jul 02, 2013
Like a girl who tied her sweater around her waist.
Jason Ware Jul 02, 2013
Just ass camo
Preston Harris Jul 02, 2013
No camo?
Nääk van Alberick Jul 03, 2013
Looks like a Doc Martens shoe. Stripes would perform formidable as shoelaces... the "what color question",.. back again :D
Jacob Burford Jul 03, 2013
I don't think the rear is bad in any way, but you'd hope for more changes than just the tail lights.
Puneet Dass Jul 02, 2013
I'm surprised there wasn't a carbuzz.com sign on that guys rear end
David Lee Jul 02, 2013
I like the rear.
Justin Harris Jul 02, 2013
Front was ok IMO but the rear is terrible...
Kieran Ward Jul 02, 2013
Tailights are waaay to big
Edward Galligan Jul 02, 2013
I thought he hadn't got any pants on the first time i saw this picture
Craig Smith Jul 02, 2013
Rear is a complete disaster too!
Jul 02, 2013
Countryman tail lamps
Luke Purdy Jul 02, 2013
Yeah not sure about this one
Craig Smith Jul 02, 2013
Couldn't agree more
Callum Russell Jul 02, 2013
New lights are too big imo
