    Someone leaked shots of what is clearly the new MINI Cooper crossover and they show off everything about the new car — except whether its called the Mini Countryman or Mini Crossman.

    MINI Logo

    Do you think the MINI logo on the boot is large enough? :rolleyes: :popcorn:

    I remember the guys on Top Gear giving their "ugliest car of the year" award to the Clubman. They were very wrong, of course, but methinks they'll have plenty to say about this one.

    Why so sad, Mr Frowny Face? Did you see an Escalade with a bigger emblem than yours?

    On another brighter note, is that a non-Pepper white paint color?

    Also, I have to say that it isn't an abomination. It looks pretty good for what it is. The back emblem is crazy enormous, but what else was Mini going to put back there, more plastic fake vents? And I would love to see the end of the front-fender-vent fad.

    As I say every time a new Mini variant comes out: It doesn't make my R53 any different. Mini can build anything and everything, manual or automatic, gas or diesel or electric, big or small - my car will still be great.

    It's not bad, just needs a little slam for highway driving and the twisties, good to go. :)

    "twisties" and "Crossman" don't seem that compatible! :arf:

    I think it looks good, but honestly I was hoping a bit bigger. I know it's a MINI, but I wanted something I could take to the lumber yard.

    I do like that white.

    I would think lowered, bigger wheels, the AWD could probably hold it's own in the twisties.

    Now that's what the R56 was supposed to look like from the get-go!!!!!!!!:aureola:

    Oh boy:eek6:

    Kidding aside, I like that it looks aggressive and a little bit angry. As always, I'll reserve true judgment until I see it in the flesh and metal.

    :Thumbsup: On the lower anterior portion of the passenger front door are several(3) chrome figures and a red #4. Can anyone make those out? Might give us more info. Jason

    My wife likes my Mini Margi for me but not for herself. "It's too low,it's too small,it's not a four door, whine,whine." This vehicle just might be the answer.I'll have to show it to her.:Thumbsup::devil: Jason

    I just want to know if that is a X1 chassis under the Mini body. The non Pepper White is probably because it is a concept photo, but darn does it look good. That front is going to look funny with a scoop for a turbo.

    Why would it need a scoop? The dual exhaust would also suggest this one is a turbo.
