It’s not exactly what we would call mini anymore
Mini wants to market this as an “authentic SUV” and to do that it will make it even bigger than its predecessor. It will be both longer and wider than before and these images show it’s not exactly what we would call mini anymore. Styling-wise, it will be an evolution of the old one and there might be a rugged derivative with more capabilities of tackling unpaved roads. This one is set to receive additional plastic cladding, jacked up suspension, and a standard all-wheel drive arrangement.
