Over the last few weeks, the rumormill churned out that a MINI Sedan is in the works. This would be the first of its kind for the British marque and will take the MINI brand into a new segment. According to MINI’s product manager, Ralph Mahler, this car wouldn’t necessarily be attractive to markets such as the U.S. for example, but would appeal to new ones, with great potential, like China.

In Asia, the sedan is still the main choice for most people and introducing a MINI in this guise could prove to be a daring and, why not, successful move.25914213784 f7de7bca23 b 750x450

As for keeping the heritage of the brand intact, MINI says that won’t be a problem, as “the sedan concept is in our history.  So we have roots there,” according to Mahler. He is, of course, referring to the Riley Elf and Wolseley Hornet models that are not as widely known as the MINI hardtop is.

The rendering here was done by Theophilus Chin and has taken cues from the Paceman, a model that will be phased out from production in the following months.
