Land Rover has jumped ahead of it's SUV rivals with the impending introduction of the 2-door Evoque. Now BMW are ready to offer their own version with the introduction of a coupe based on the recently launched Countryman.

Not yet confirmed by the bigwigs at BMW, the MINI Countryman Coupe would go for a conventional 2-door layout or possibly four-door incorporating a set of rearward opening doors.

The new model will be targeting a retail price of about £20,000, putting it well below the Evoque which is expected to cost another €10,000 on top of this figure.

Another model currently on the table is the Minissimo – an entry-level city car with a 2+1 layout.

Porsche does it for fun so, why not BMW for MINI? Besides, the Countryman is gonna be a sure-fire hit like forthcoming coupe and roadster!

Funny how none of you remember that new generation of MINI is just getting started, when you look at the Mini brand of years past, they had the coupe, the pickup truck, the panel van, the mooke... I myself would love to see a 2 door Crossover. Shame shame on not knowing the history...

Agree with everyone who has posted so far. I'd much rather see a real proper small Mini in the same vein as the Spiritual concept of many years ago than a 2 door off roader. Suzuki X90 anyone?

WHO IS IN CHARGE OF THESE COMPANIES? Marketing nerds who will push anything and everything to get ahead is my guess. I could only imagine how good the industry would be if people who actually liked cars were in charge!

Oh boy, here we go... Isn't the NAME MINI don't mean anything? BMW, have you read the dictionary? n., pl., min·i. -Something that is distinctively smaller than other members of its type or class. -A miniskirt. If your not planing in getting into fashion design with a briton-bavarian miniskirt for the pretty lady, STICK TO THE DEFINITION! The only thing that make sense is the Minissimo, due that it is more in line with the REAL definition of MINI. (definition thanks to http://www.answers.com/topic/mini)

They're only considering it? Well I hope one of the decision-makers reads WCF, so that it means something when I say DON'T DO IT BMW!! I can't even bring myself to call you Mini anymore! You're just a sub-division of BMW that makes expensive, stylish cars. I know you enjoy playing silly buggers with niche cars BMW, but stop tarnishing a beloved British name already!

They are jeopardizing the Mini brand, making it undistinguishable.

Ah, I can see the glare of money in their eyes by offering this useless bullshit to the fanatic Mini fans. What's the point in this? I understand buying a Ferrari or a Aston Martin (pointless cars but still worth having) but not this, this isn't even worth it. Hate replies are imminent.
