New 2010 MINI Crossover Concept

MINI has show the first photo of the new Crossover Concept, which will be unveiled at the Paris Motor Show next month. BMW’s approach from concept to production in recent years has been to make minimal changes, the exterior design we see before us will stay pretty much the same but for a more conventional door set-up when the production model is launched in 2010.

These initial metaphors give us a cloudless indication of how future MINIs will be styled, and if BMW‘s reputation for making only a few revisions from model to production secure proper, this is very close to the perfect product.

Measuring about six inches wider and taller than the Clubman, the Crossover Concept features a five-door body method, but that’s where the similarities end. The right rear door has a conventional crux, but the left door slides out and back, minivan-panache. The rear inlaid ditches the Clubman‘s dual doors and is instead fixed with a track panel that opens to the right. Sources propose that the model’s door arrangement might be nixed behind something more traditional when it reaches production.

Power specifications and obtain border levels have yet to be bare, but suppose the Crossover to carry the same genuinely aspirated and turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder engines as its Cooper counterparts, BMW’s Efficient Dynamics practice (with father-stop tech) and naturally, all-controls-energy.
