Details are extremely thin on what is meant by a “MINI SUV”, so
let’s not panic just yet. In fact, other news sources are still using
the term “crossover” to describe this vehicle. Given both the success
and continued expansion of the Countryman, when the term “SUV” gets
used, what exactly are we talking about here? Is it a truly larger
vehicle than the R60? Or are we looking at something more off-road
focused rising out of that same platform? Anybody remember the
Beachcomber? This was our prediction back in January and for now, we’re
sticking with it as this “SUV” they’re talking about. Given that we
already know MINI has worked on internal Beachcomber concepts in both
five door, and Paceman-like three door variants (nicknamed the Canyon
inside MINI), it seems likely that any growth on the part of the
Countryman would be up, not out. That said, an extended wheel-base
Countryman (a Countryman Clubman?) also seems plausible, but that is purely a guess on my part.
