LONDON — Promising that the next-generation 2014 Mini Cooper will be "the new original," BMW is teasing the third-generation car in a new YouTube video.

The 37-second video shows key design details of the 2014 Mini Cooper, including what appear to be LED headlights. Earlier, Mini said the car will feature "completely new engines and chassis technologies," one of which is believed to be a new three-cylinder engine developed by Mini owner BMW, but there also will be 4-cylinder power for the new-generation Mini.

Mini recently previewed the 2014 Mini Cooper's design with its Mini Vision concept.

The 2014 Mini Cooper is set for a debut on November 18 at the Mini plant in Oxford, England, followed by simultaneous reveals at the 2013 Tokyo Auto Show and 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show. The November 18 date is described as a nod to Sir Alec Issigonis, the creator of the Mini. Mini said the date marks "107 years to the day since the birth of the man who started an automobile revolution."

The new Mini Cooper will go on sale in the first quarter of 2014.

Edmunds says: Just a little something to whet the appetite for one of the most anticipated cars of the year.
