Edmund’s Insideline.com takes a look at what may be on tap for the next MINI. While there’s nothing new here that we haven’t read in countless articles before, it’s another nice summary of what we may see in the way of body styles with the next generation MINI. Here’s an excerpt:
The new Mini will come in two wheelbase lengths, allowing the development of three new versions. The long-wheelbase versions will be a Clubman five-door, with rear-hinged rear passenger doors like the Mazda RX-8 and van-style twin rear doors, reminiscent of the 1960s original Mini Countryman wagon.
There will also be a three-door wagon with flexible cargo space, and a two-door pickup, which would see a revival of the Mini Moke name. The original Moke was a utilitarian, stripped-down Mini off-roader.??>In addition, there will be a new short-wheelbase roadster derivative, which will have a removable hardtop in place of the cabrio’s canvas roof.
