    It's probably undergoing hot weather testing in the Cali/Az desert area. Death Valley is commonly used by auto makers for testing. GM has or soon had a place in Mesa. Ford is in Yucca. Nissan has a tract of land as well.

    Countryman Badge Destined For MINI Crossover?

    ACCORDING TO a trademark submission made by BMW, the company’s upcoming MINI crossover may wear the Countryman name.

    The timing of the submission strongly supports the theory that the Countryman moniker will be used by the high-riding MINI CUV, which is expected to debut at the Frankfurt auto show in September.

    The Countryman badge also has a history with the original Austin Mini, being used on the long-wheelbase wagon variants of the 1960s-era microcar. Given BMW-owned MINI’s recent revivals of other Mini names (Clubman, anyone?), the Countryman would certainly be an apt choice for the new crossover.
