We’re expecting that more than any other, the upcoming 5-door MINI variant will significantly impact the brand’s popularity, especially with American buyers. Mixing a bit of the Countryman’s 4-door practicality with the smaller footprint of the F56, the F55 will give MINI buyers that little bit more utility than the current Clubman.

Well today we get yet another spy shot look at what we can expect from the F55. Some anonymous photog sent a pair of body shop photos to Auto Express. Now that we’ve seen the F56 for real, it’s much easier to imagine what to expect in the F55 from these photos. See them both over at Auto Express.

Expect the debut next autumn with the F55 going on sale in early 2015.
