MINI Crossover To Be Named Monte Crossman

In an interview with Auto Motor und Sport, MINI CEO Kay Segler let it slip that the new MINI crossover/SUV will be called the Crossman, and not the Mini Monte as we'd all kind of hoped it would be. Crossman just sounds like a cross-dressing super hero... or maybe a super hero with David Cross' humor and good looks. That could work.

As reported earlier, Magna-Steyr will be building the Clubman-based mini-utes starting in 2010. The company is set to produce as many as 80,000 per year with many of the taller wagons set for US consumption. What do you think of the name? [Auto Motor und Sport via AutoBlog]
