United Kingdom's Auto Express has photos of a new, next generation five door MINI on the production floor at Oxford as described by Dietmar Zimmerhackl, Senior Vice President MINI Product Line, at the recent LA Motor Show:
"You can see from looking at the standard hatch that we will need to expand the wheelbase just to fit another set of doors in."According to the article.
The five-door hatchback is tipped to be the most lucrative member of the new MINI range, aimed at young families desperate for extra space. “Some people want a MINI with the ease of five doors but they don't want it to be as big as the Countryman. That's our market here," Zimmerhackl revealed.
