A third-generation MINI (F56) prototype has been spotted out and about recently. Still around a year from its official debut the car is heavily disguised so not a lot of detail can be seen.
Although, it’s worth noting the wheels have moved from a four-stud to five-stud pattern. Also the front overhang has grown quite a lot to accommodate new pedestrian crash standards. The saggy looking nose is probably a result of the same regulations.
