Mini , after the submission of a new, more practical Clubman , I have decided to make the following Countryman «authentic» SUV. According to the British magazine Autocar , the next iteration Countryman takes inspiration from the race car Mini Dakar Rally and show a rough appearance than today’s models of the brand.
It is expected he will be more spacious and practical, as it is based on a new platform, one which is based on the Clubman. This means new SUV is 4.25 m in length and at least 10 mm would be wider than the previous model. All-wheel drive will be the same as that of BMW 2-Series Active Tourer .
And Mini is planning a “hot” version of the new Clubman with a 300-horsepower engine and four-wheel drive to compete with VW Golf R Estate , equipping the vehicle propulsion “high performance” equally compact crossover BMW X1 .
