Mini Cooper five-door

The two-door Mini Cooper is getting two additional portals in its next generation. A coming five-door Cooper S with central exhaust has been spotted out testing, the idea being that it will pose a better challenge to other small, premium hatches in the segment like the A1 Sportback. Based on the same UKL platform that will support the production version of the BMW Concept Active Tourer, the wheelbase has been lengthened to make more room for rear passengers.

It should start the auto show circuit at some point next year, getting buyers ready for its production in 2014. We'll find out then if it gets a special name and how it fits in with – or perhaps replaces – the Clubman.

Hit the jump for our full spy shot gallery.
