Here's our best look yet at the upcoming five-door version (codenamed F55) of the new generation Mini hatchback series, spied completely uncovered while being transferred on a trailer by a poster over at the Dutch Newminiclub forums.

It's hard to tell from these night shots, but previously spied prototypes of the car appear to sport shorter front doors and a slightly longer wheelbase than the traditional three-door version (F56) of the BMW Group's third generation "New Mini", which premiered at the Tokyo and Los Angeles motor shows in November last year.

The Mini-loving crew over at Motoringfile says the five-door F56 should be at least 50mm (2+ inches) longer than the three-door F56, with the newly found space aiding (mainly) rear passenger legroom and to a lesser degree, the cargo area. Mini may offer both a two-seat and a traditional three-seat bench layout for the rear compartment.

Under the hood, the F55 will be offered with the same engine lineup as the F56, centered on the new 1.5-liter three-cylinder and 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharged units.

The F56 three-door model will be the first of the new Mini hatch series to launch in the market this spring and will be followed by the F56 five-door version towards the end of the year or early 2015, and the Cabriolet (F57) next year.

If this is the case then maybe it should be an option. But i really have no complaints with the gas cap. I find it rather unique.

Is it unique but it also look like some horrible aftermarket mod only ricers would go after. But because of how amazing Mini's are, it's something I can live with, definitely not a deal breaker.
