Munich, Germany – Mini has announced the Mini Crossover Concept, a new four-wheel drive concept model with four doors and four seats.
The concept vehicle includes a universal multifunction fastening rail, called the Mini Centre Rail, which extends between the seats on the centre console and offers unconventional storage options, and the Mini Centre Globe, a combined control and display unit formed as a globe for the integrated control of entertainment, communication, navigation and vehicle functions.
Longer and wider than other Mini models, and with a longer wheelbase, the vehicle offers extra cargo space and broadens the appeal of the brand to an even larger target group. The four doors are not symmetrical, but have a conventional arrangement on the passenger side, and on the driver’s side, a conventional door for the first row of seats and a lift/sliding door, moving along the outside, for convenient access and for loading the car from the side. The concept also includes a folding roof cover, extending throughout the entire length of the roof, which may be opened both from the front and from the rear.
The company has not announced plans for a production version.
