Mini Crossover Concept unveiled before Paris debut |

Officially unveiled today, the Mini Crossover Concept will be making its world debut at next month’s Paris Motor Show. The concept follows the styling from the other models in the MINI range, the Cooper and the Clubman, and will be starting point for the British company’s upcoming crossover, the Crossman. It actually looks like a Cooper on steroids, but still, that doesn’t mean it’s ugly, on the contrary, it’s quite interesting.

The concept also comes with some new features, such as the asymmetrical door arrangement (regular doors on the passenger’s side, while on the driver’s side we have a regular front door and a sliding back door, which allow easier access for people, dogs, luggage or whatever you want to transport), the folding roof cover extending throughout the entire length of the roof, which can be opened both from the front and from the rear, the new MINI Center Globe (the round Central Display allows you to control all entertainment, telecommunication and navigation functions, plus the speedometer function around its outer circumference) or the MINI Centre Rail, a fastening rail that extends from the dashboard all the way to the tailgate of the car. You can read more about the car in the official press release.

So, what do you think about the car? To be honest, I was quite skeptical about Mini building a crossover, but after seeing this concept (can’t wait to see it live at the French show), I think they really have a winner here.
