2014 Mini Cooper Previewed by Vision Concept

Concepts

The next-generation Mini Cooper will debut later this fall, but for now the Vision Concept previews its styling.

The next-generation Mini is coming very soon, like November soon. Expected to debut at LA this fall, the third-gen Mini Cooper will be a bit larger than the current model, but it’ll also feature some fresh but still recognizable styling inside and out. Set to be unveiled at Frankfurt in September is the Mini Vision Concept, a lightly disguised preview of what the new production Cooper will look like. Thing is, we’ve already seen spy images of the car with very little camouflage.

The concept has a hexagonal radiator grille, LED headlights with integrated daytime running lights, and fancier taillights. Overall, the exterior design can’t be mistaken for anything other than a Mini, but styling has certainly been upgraded in general. Same goes for the interior, which once again features a retro circular instrument display. This time, however, vital driver info such as the speedometer is being moved to the instrument cluster behind the steering wheel. That big round display will now serve as an infotainment system. Precise details about the Vision Concept are still on the horizon, but we like what we’re seeing so far.
