One of the exciting vehicles debuting at the Detroit Auto Show next week is MINI’s preview of their upcoming crossover. Dubbed Beachcomber, the new MINI Concept introduces us to some of their future models.

The four-seater concept car was unveiled back in December and many believe it is a preview of the production MINI Crossover that will be unveiled this year at the Geneva Motor Show.

Built on an all new platform, MINI Beachcomber Concept has its roots back in the 1960’s Mini Moke, but with the new concept, MINI is finally moving away from the current round headlamp design.

The less conventional upright, tall and flat nose has a Moke influence and it has been designed to meet the new strict pedestrian safety regulations.

The new concept measures 4007mm and the 2.6m wheelbase also offers great rear legroom compared with similar-sized cars.

As we mentioned, Beachcomber debuts next Monday at the Detroit Auto Show and we will be there to bring you live coverage.
