Tiny Traveller: Mini set to unveil woody wagon concept at Frankfurt show
BOB GRITZINGER
Posted Date: 9/7/05


If our information is accurate, chances are good the fun folks from BMW’s small-car subsidiary, Mini, will unveil a “concept” version of this car at the Frankfurt motor show.

We hear Mini will call its Frankfurt woody wagon concept the Countryman, but when the bigger, boxier Mini hits the market it will likely carry the Clubman or Traveller moniker, or both. Details are sketchy, but this new model will likely appear in 2007 as an ’08 model, built on the extended wheelbase Mini five-door hatch due in 2006 as an ’07 model.

Look for Mini to continue its retro theme by reaching into the past for Traveller’s vertically split barn door in place of a rear hatchback. The Traveller also may sport rear-hinged rear side doors to further boost the utility of its expanded back seat.
