MINI Open To Making Bigger Cars

LeftLane reports:
. . . "I'm not sure who set the traditional size limits for what a MINI should be? MINI doesn't have to mean small in size. There are brand lines set by traditionalists and historic customers, and I respect that, but at the same time the world moves on," said Sebastian Mackensen, the brand's senior vice president, in an interview with British magazine Autocar.

Mackensen stressed that customers, not brand purists, will ultimately have a say in how big future MINIs will be. However, he also hinted that the car maker isn't currently planning on going much bigger than the new second-gen Clubman (pictured) that was introduced last week at the Frankfurt Motor Show. . . .
