Nithyanandh K, As a toddler, those wheeled machinery fascinated me even before I knew what they’re called as! So here I'm, petrolhead by birth, Mechanical engineer by qualification and automotive reporter by profession!

The 2014 MINI Cooper is set to make its debut at the LA Auto Show in November, however you needn’t wait till that to have a clear idea about how it looks!

Here is a 3D model of the next gen Mini Cooper S which was created by Humster3D. The model is based on the uncamouflaged spyshots of the car that were doing rounds on the internet. It seems very close to the real deal!

The third iteration of the iconic hatchback retains its core DNA of a compact footprint. Of course the car will be slightly bigger than the outgoing version but it’s still very much a MINI!

The front fascia gets a gaping grill lined with chrome and a rectangular secondary airdam. The headlamps are moved further towards the bonnet and the circular foglamps are placed wide apart. The signature air scoop on the bonnet gets wider and thinner.

The side profile is typical of a MINI Cooper. The rear gets slightly larger taillights and the centre mounted twin exhaust tips invade the bumper deeper than the current car.

While the exterior design is not a far cry from the current model, the next gen MINI Cooper will have a completely new hardware setup. Based on BMW’s modular UKL front wheel drive platform, the MINI will make use of a family of new BMW 3 cylinder engines.
