Mini has taken the covers off its new concept car, the Mini Vision, which is likely to show us how next year's hatchback will look.
The concept car – which is actually a 3D hologram – was unveiled by Mini's head of design Anders Warming in Munich.
It looks very similar to the outgoing Mini, but the hexagonal radiator grille harks back to the original Mini and incorporates front fog lights.
The Vision retains the hallmark features of the Mini brand such as the floating roof and chrome strip along the body.
The inside keeps the retro appearance of the last model with its trademark central speedo. Warming says the elastic door straps are 'a nod to the brand's British heritage'.
When the new model arrives next year, we expect it to have CO2 emissions below 100g/km for petrol versions and 80g/km for diesels.
