New Mini Variants on the Way

This image was lost some time after publication.

According to leaked documents obtained by Edmunds Inside Line the next Mini, due in 2007, will come in six flavors. In addition to the current three-door and cabrio models, the line will include five-door, roadster, pickup and wagon models, in two wheelbase lengths. Brits of a certain age will remember the vanlike Mini Clubman and British Leyland Mini pickups, to which the new models would be a kind of homage. The extended, five-door model will have rear-hinged "suicide" doors in the rear, and the roadster will have a removable hardtop. But don't run out and sell the apple cart right yet — we won't see any such line extensions until at least 2008.
