2012 MINI Canyon

Mini will unveil a three-door version of the Countryman crossover for 2012. It will target models like the Range Rover Evoque and will be inspired by Mini’s concept car that debuted in 2005. The Canyon will also inspire a production version of the Beachcomber that will feature a stripped-out interior and removable roof panels.

The 2012 Canyon will be built on a shortened version of the Countryman’s chassis giving it two doors and a striking exterior design which features a sporty coupé-like roofline. The next Canyon will feature a dramatic roofline and two-seat interior. Also on the interior the car will feature all the latest technologies, leather and Alcantara, placing the Canyon above the Mini Countryman in the line-up.

The next crossover will be powered by a 208bhp 1.6-liter turbo engine from the JCW car. A 201bhp 2.0-liter diesel from BMW’s
X1 is also likely to be offered. Canyon will feature a new ALL4 four-wheel-drive system as standard.

This three door version is somewhat a new concept for me. But i think if I’m going to buy a SUV I would choose other than this even of they will use the ALL4 four-wheel-drive system.

How can they call it the Canyon? There is already a GMC Canyon!

BMW/Mini Cooper needs to concentrate on getting the quality of its core car back up.

It’s a good thing that they put the 4wheel drive system as a ddefault when you buy a Canyon.
