It looks like MINI is ready to unveil their new crossover vehicle sooner than we thought.

Rumors are running rampant that as early as next week, MINI will be ready to show the whole world their very first crossover vehicle. While there isn’t an exact date as to when this happen, a number of sources have indicated that the unveiling is likely to happen before the Frankfurt Motor Show.

The company had initially intended to unveil the crossover vehicle at Frankfurt next month, but apparently the company figured that lifting the veil on the car sooner than expected could drum up public interest leading up to the highly-anticipated motor show.

The MINI Crossover, which, according to a number of sources, has been given the name ‘Countryman’ is MINI’s first foray into the SUV market.

It would be interesting to see how the general public reacts to the car when it is officially unveiled. For the most part, the car has received positive reviews from people who have seen renderings and spy shots of the car.

The new crossover vehicle is definitely a ground-breaking step for MINI, especially since they’re a brand that has rarely – if ever – ventured outside the hatchback market. If the MINI Countryman proves to be as good as advertised, then it wouldn’t be too far off to assume that it could end up selling like hot pancakes.
