Its nothing to do with the X1. Probably based around the next generation MINI chassis. I have a MINI and its great to drive, and own - good comfort too. Indeed both my wife and I like the Clubman as well, but the standard suits us. This is probably a MINI suitable for 4 people and one you could drive comfortably for serious distances. One of the problems with bonnet designs for all cars are the EU pedestrian crash regulations. I think the real talking point is the need for the 3rd window, brought about by extra length and the full rear doors - thats where it looks a bit awkward.

It works as part of the new MINI range but it isnt in keeping with the history at all... the beachcomber was at least like the classic Moke.

rebadged X1? i don't think so. there's a lot of front overhang and the gap between the front wheel and the front door opener is pretty close.

A rebadged X1. Does anyone else notice how poorly the design of the structure on the rear window on each side. This car has really been thrown together in a sad attempt for market share...

NICE! it's better than i expected. for those who think the MINI name is slaughtered, etc etc, didn't the BMW's versions already done that? the size and weight of the BMW MINI are already not Mini standards. I am sure many MINI owners will be happy to move into this than an X1, Q3, MLK, or whatever SUV.

I'm stopping myself from flaming this car, simply because I've flamed BMW in every 'MINI' article recently. I'll just say that by selling this, the Mini name is officially slaughtered. This is a BMW X1 in drag. Bad drag.

The doors is not even frameless, the rear legroom and bootspace is still small. Low ground clearance. I can't believe that I am going to say this but I prefer the X1

Oh dear, what have they done to MINI? Aren't MINI supposed to rewrite the rulebook or revolutionize compact city cars or participates in Rallys? Finally I found an offroader that is uglier than the Cayenne.

Could use some bigger wheels, i think that's why it looks weird. Those wheels are just too small on it. Some nice 18" wheels and lower it a bit and it would be sexy.

It looks more like a grown-up MINI rather than a MINI 4×4. It’s a lot better than I thought it was going to look and I actually quite like it. Could be my next car. Is it me or does the decal on the side say ‘MX4??

This looks promising. Finally a SUV/SAV for grow-up Mini family :).

Looks like an over inflated Clubman. But to be honest, I actually like the retro-ness of it. It is something original compared to its rivals, the Tiguan and the ASX are pretty much similar.
