I normally dislike three door cars, all that clumsy climbing about but it suits the mini (I'm awaiting delivery of my Cooper D) so this 4 door version looks just a bit silly. Weirdly more bloated than the Countryman or other larger models.
The front doesn't look correct but from the front doors back it looks ok. Jeep did the same with the wrangler and the 4 door out sells the 2 door. Mini needs to keep developing just to keep the money coming in. In NZ Mini is not a brand which goes out to find customers. They have tried to market the young but the young don't have the this kind of money. Now housing is so expensive their is less money around and interest rates are about to climb.
I would have thought the convertible and would have been out first before the 5 door.
