MUNICH, Germany - Mini’s Cabriolet and Clubman have been spotted undergoing testing in Munich, Germany.

Despite the camouflage, spy images reveal significant changes to the convertible version of the third-generation new Mini.

The new unit can be seen with a conventional canvas top and will share overall looks, engines and underpinnings with the Mini Cooper.

SPOTTED IN ACTION

Mini is also testing its next-generation Clubman.

The most striking change is the size of the car which has clearly grown for the new generation - especially in width.

Overall length has been extended to make room for the front-hinged rear doors as opposed to the rear-hinged, half-door seen in the first generation.

Engines will be borrowed from the Cooper which will include the two-litre turbo.
