MINI Cooper S 5-door and Cooper S Cabrio spied image

The British based automaker MINI is getting ready to introduce two new versions of the new hatchback, the three-door Cooper S Cabrio and the 5-door Cooper S.

A new five-door model to the MINI lineup is getting ready to hit the market, in the hot Cooper S version. The model in question will have a slightly longer wheelbase and smaller front doors than the 3-door car but the engine lineup will be shared between the two of them. The new five-door MINI Cooper S will be riding on the same UKL1 modular platform, shared with the BMW 2-Series Active Tourer, and it’s believed to be unveiled by the end of this year.

Another addition to the lineup will be the MINI Cooper S Cabrio. This has been recently caught on camera by our spy photographers at the Nurburgring and it appears to be slightly longer and wider than the current model, getting a smaller grille, slimmer A-pillars and a longer hood. The “S” badge is well visible on the model. The conventional canvas top will be maintained and the rest of the features will be shared with the new MINI lineup. The Cooper S Cabrio will most likely be introduced along with the 5-door Cooper S.
