Here’s a quick update on what to expect and when to expect it for the US market. As we mentioned previously, MINI will be holding off introducing the R56 to the US market until December production. That means the cars in the US are expected reach some dealers by late January.

The R56 will make it’s world debut at the Paris autoshow in late September and in the US at (drum roll please)…. the LA autoshow in early December.

Dealers from around the world will get a chance to sample the new car in Rome Italy (both on the road and on the track) sometime shortly after the Paris introduction in October.

Cars for the rest of the world will reportedly begin production in late September and early October.
