According to the details regarding, the 2013 MINI Cooper will be built on the new BMW UKL1 platform. While, our the spy photographers have managed to snap the first pictures of the 2013 MINI Cooper and it was out testing in Germany.
As we already know, BMW’s UKL1 platform is very versatile, accommodating both front- and all-wheel drive layouts in various sizes. The platform will be used on up to 10 different new MINI variants that are planned for the 2013 model, including a new Coupe and Roadster.
Engine options remain a bit of a mystery, but we can expect a variety of fuel-efficient powertrains. With a range of four-cylinder powerplants. A new three-cylinder entry-level engine is also in the mix, providing super-fuel-efficient consumption figures.
We believe that major changes for the new model include larger dimensions in both length and width, providing more interior room and boot space. Inside, despite this prototype featuring a more conventional dash design compared with all of the current and previous generation MINI’s, but the production model will keep the MINI’s traditional center mounted instrument panel.
