Mini To Unveil SUV at Paris Motor Show

The original Mini, as its name implied, was an incredibly compact vehicle that was designed to zip around town in the most efficient of manners. It was also wildly amusing watching Mr. Bean drive that thing. When they decided to revive the brand with the current Mini Cooper, people got pretty excited.

They went a little bigger with the launch of the Mini Cooper Clubman and now they’re set to go even bigger at the Paris Motor Show where we expect to see the official unveiling of the Mini Crossman CUV. The crossover utility vehicle is “jacked up”, riding about 80mm higher than standard Minis. The engine will be the same 1.6L powerplant found inside the Cooper and the Clubman.

The Mini Crossman will be manufactured by Magna Steyr and they hope to produce about 80,000 units each year. The new platform will allow for both AWD and FWD drivetrains.
