The next generation MINI isn’t expected to see much exterior design change. That according to one of the most reputable auto publications in the world, Automotive News. And if that sounds vaguely familiar, it’s because we’ve been beating the same drum here at MotoringFile for well over a year. However the folks at Automotive News have a bit more of an definitive source, Kay Segler, MINI Worldwide Vice President of Brand Management. Here’s an excerpt from the article:

>Pointing to the success of Porsche and Mini, Segler said, “Some brands and some products need to do things differently.”

>But Segler said the Mini’s interior might see major changes as the vehicle evolves over the coming years. “Maybe you could be more adventurous when it comes to the interior,” he said.

>The styling theme created for the Mini 45 years ago and adapted to the current car remains popular.

>Segler says the proof is the brand’s sales and continued demand for the car. Depending on the country, Mini customers wait two to six months for delivery. In the United States, the wait is nearly four months.
