A More Capable Countryman In The Offing

AutoGuide.com sources AutoCar for this info:
As for the Countryman, this vehicle is expected to be transformed into something far more rugged than its current iteration. Supposedly, it will take design cues from the company’s X-Raid, which is a four-time winner of the Dakar race. But any changes they make will not be just in the styling department; the vehicle is also likely to get more capable.

Based on MINI’s UKL platform, which underpins the Clubman, the next-generation Countryman is expected to be longer, wider and appreciably more capacious than today’s model. All-wheel drive will be provided by the same system found in BMW’s 2 Series Active Tourer.
