The new Crossover will become the fourth variant in MINI's growing range - all based on the same look.

At over four metres long, the MINI Crossover Concept is far from mini, offering extra space and practicality with all-wheel drive versatility - a first for the brand.

Like the Clubman, it features an asymmetric door arrangement and four separate seats - with a conventional layout on the passenger side offset by a sliding rear door arrangement for the driver side.

The rear tailgate however features a single hinged layout unlike the Clubman, and boasts a unique frameless and retractable rear window.

A twist on a MINI trademark exists in the concept with the centrally positioned instrument cluster in a three-dimensional finish dubbed the MINI Centre Globe.

According to MINI, this combined control and display unit sets new standards for the integrated control of entertainment, communication, navigation, and vehicle functions.

It features ultra-modern laser projection technology allowing simultaneous presentation of pictures on various levels, with a varying focus and in powerful colours.
