It looks like the Countryman coupé concept is off the drawing board at Mini’s design studio in Munich.
Here are the latest spyshots of what looks like a production prototype of the Mini’s answer to Range Rovers Evoque.
Strangely looking at the prototype pictured here it looks like the hint of suicide doors have been canned and they have gone for a 3 door variant unless Mini are hiding a further prototype in the Mini Research and Development center in Munich.
This will probably be the last revision of the current mini range on the old platform with the all new Mini allready appearing in prototype form.
MINI is adding a new model to the family, opening up a new look of that unmistakable MINI heritage.
The MINI Countryman bridges the gap between the classic concept of the MINI and a modern Sports Activity Vehicle.
Boasting enhanced opportunities in urban mobility and beyond, the MINI Countryman offers that unique driving pleasure so typical of MINI to new target groups requiring extra versatility.
As the only model in the MINI range with four doors and a wide-opening rear lid, the MINI Countryman provides even greater feeling of space for truly flexible use, a slightly elevated seating position, and optimised driving comfort.
And at the same time the MINI Countryman maintains that go-kart feeling likewise so characteristic of MINI, optional MINI ALL wheel drive offering an additional highlight for the genuine urbann offroader.
