The Mini Crossover Concept is a new model variant for the first time measuring more than four metres in length, with four drive wheels, four doors and four single seats. These features alone place the new car right in the line of vision of new target groups seeking to combine the individual style of the brand with enhanced versatility within the interior and innovative functionality throughout. A universal, multi-function fastening rail, the Mini Centre Rail, extending between the seats on the centre console of the Concept, offers unconventional storage options, but also provides a consistent link between the front row of seats and the rear. A further highlight within the Mini interior is the innovative central instrument in three dimensional finish, the Mini Centre Globe. This combined control and display unit formed as a globe featured for the first time in an automobile, sets new standards for the integrated control of entertainment, communication, navigation, and vehicle functions.
The innovative character of the new car comprises its body design as well as the drivetrain, the interior and the control concept. Indeed, offering options and versatility of this kind, the Mini Crossover Concept opens up new dimensions in mobility also beyond urban life. The Mini Concept clearly expresses this principle, its all-wheel drive serving to give the new model an even wider range of practical use in new areas and a new experience on routes already driven. But in doing so the Mini Crossover Concept is not limited to the usual status of a conventional all-wheeler. Rather, to offer its additional mobility potential even more consistently, the Concept Car comes with numerous design features making it an all-round talent for a unique experience in everyday life, for enjoying leisure time to the utmost, for adventure travels of all kinds and for travel planning.
