BMW baut einen viertürigen Mini

BMW once again is expanding its fleet of small range of cars with plans on creating four-door versions of the Mini in 2014. “The increased length and wheelbase allow a larger four-door version of the Mini for the first time,” a BMW spokesman confirms to “Auto Motor and Sport” magazine.

Said to have been developed carefully, the new Mini will feature new elliptical full-LED headlights, chrome strips on the door trim and a black roof mount. Under the hood BMW wants to introduce a new engine family that puts consumption and emissions as new standards in its class. The new Mini will also be lighter due to the increased use of aluminum in its make.
