Autotelegraaf is reporting that MINI is planning on debuting the new MINI cross-over (potentially named the “Crossman” this September at the Paris Motor Show. While we have our doubts about the exact information, the article goes on to say that the Crossman will measure just over 3 inches (8 cm) higher and around 157 inches (400 cm) – 9″ longer than the standard MINI coupe which is roughly 146 inches in total length.
Despite what Autotelegraaf is reporting, our sources are telling us that what will actually be shown this fall will be a lightly disguised “concept” similar to the Traveller concepts shown a few years ago that previewed the Clubman. We expect the final production cross-over to remain behind closed doors until just before it’s public debut until 2010 – likely the latter half.
You can read more on the new cross-over in the MF R60 section.
