Mini Crossover Concept previews SUV version for 2010

Can a Mini be bigger than 4 m? This one can. Meet the new Mini Crossover Concept, a car that will anticipate in two years the SUV version of the little (at least it used to be) British car when it is officially presented this year at the Paris Motor Show.

The new Crossover Concept is 4.05 m long, 1.83 m wide and 1.60 m tall. Although its engine has not been revealed, the new small "SUV" will use the same engines that are in the rest of the Mini range, or else, 1.4-litre and 1.6-litre petrol engines delivering from 95 bhp to 175 bhp and a 1.6-litre turbodiesel producing 110 bhp. SUV is a way of saying, since the new vehicle is not expected to have 4x4 capabilities, but only all wheel drive. The new Mini crossover will be produced in Austria by Magna Steyr.
