Of course, it wouldn’t be a MINI United unless we got the chance to talk to the main man in charge, Dr. Wolfgang Armbrecht, Senior Vice President of Brand Management at MINI. He gives us the lowdown on the latest MINI updates. Or, as much as he could. Pay special attention to the part about the Crossover and the “optional” four wheel drive feature. Also, in what should be music to some enthusiasts’ ears, note that Dr. Armbrecht stated that in the future MINI would be focusing on “the trend toward smaller cars”. Keep in mind this statement followed some discussion of the Crossover, a larger MINI, but the statement can be taken as a hopeful hint of where MINI may be going next.
