Since Mini was gotten by BMW, the British motoring icon has actually had a hard time to grow. When known merely as a service provider of fun, available, small-sized transportation, the brand has made a number of forays into uncharted area for many years, a few of which have brought success, and others-- not so much. Now, nevertheless, Mini says it has the best formula. Instead of offering myriad specific niche variants like it performed in the recent past, Mini is aiming to trim the fat to just 5 core model lines. 4 of these are currently known, including the hardtop, convertible, Countryman subcompact crossover, and Clubman five-door wagon. The last 5th pillar, however, remains a secret. That said, report has it a Mini Sedan is heading down the pipeline.
