The announcement of the 2016 Clubman is not even one week old and we are already moving on to other news. A little more than a month ago, the F60 Countryman was spotted going strong on the ‘Ring. We’ve already shared plenty of information regarding the next Countryman, but this video gets us one step closer to the official debut of the fourth superhero. continued →

P90151083-MINI Superleggera Vision Roadster ConceptThis week, Autocar decided  there’s still hope that the Superleggera will enter production. While enthusiasts probably begin to grow frustrated by these rumors, Autocar’s take is based on an actual conversation with BMW Board member, Peter Schwarzenbauer. But reading the article, the more interesting tidbits do not concern the concept we all love, but rather the rest of the MINI lineup. continued →

Today BMW fans are either celebrating a new model or mourning the passing of their small rear wheel drive crossover. Either way you’re looking at the first front wheel drive based BMW to be sold globally. This new X1 also has something in common with all future MINIs. Like the forthcoming Clubman and Countryman it is based on the the larger version of the front wheel drive UKL platform. This means it’s not just a new X1 but a sneak peak at a number of things we’ll see in the 2016 Clubman and 2017 Countryman. Just what are they? Read on. continued →

Premium does not equal high cost. Nor does a move further upscale mean MINI will turn its back on the style and performance that has made the brand such a success over the years. Now with that out let’s get to the why, how and when. continued →


Spied: F60 Countryman Plug-In Hybrid Caught Winter Testing

MotoringFile Sections: F60 Countryman, In the Press Feb 9th, 2015 9 Comments

mini-countryman-plug-in-hybrid-spied-front-three-quartersAnother week, another set of spy photos from Automobile Magazine. This time, the upcoming F60 Countryman was caught winter testing, but interestingly enough this is not the most interesting bit of the story. If you look closely at the photo above, you will see a “Hybrid Testing Vehicle” sticker on the front passenger door. About a year ago, we gave a detailed overview of the plug-in system that the BMW Group plans to bring to the MINI brand. And while our initial assumption was that F54 Clubman would be the first model of FXX generation to receive this drivetrain, the new Countryman appears to be in the lead to become to first plug-in hybrid MINI ever. continued →

Spied: F60 Countryman Winter Testing

MotoringFile Sections: F60 Countryman, In the Press Jan 24th, 2015 5 Comments

F60_countryman_2Back in September, we shared our insights regarding the next MINI Countryman. The most successful MINI – after the Hardtop that is – will share the same extended UKL platform as the future BWM X1 and could come as a five and seven seater vehicle. In addition, the F60 Countryman will most likely boast similar engines currently seen across the FXX lineup, with possible diesel and plug-in options offered throughout the lifecycle of the car. Very few details regarding the exterior design have been available until now, but our colleagues at Autocar just revealed interesting tidbits on the matter. continued →

foto_0000010520140113163537Unfortunately, we don’t have the details of MINI’s strategy in that regard, but words from Peter Schwarzenbauer – left on this picture and BMW AG Board Member – reported yesterday by Automotive News revealed interesting facts about the future of our favorite brand. While the Five Superhero Cars plan isn’t news to avid MotoringFile readers, we have yet to find out what exactly those five cars will be. However, these new tidbits can help us make an educated guess and they seem to indicate that an all-electric MINI might be part of the pack. continued →
