Photos of the production car, which is expected to be unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show in March, show a connection with the Mini Beachcomber concept shown at the recent Detroit show.
Apart from the high-riding stance, the car has “All4” badging to indicate that it’s all-wheel drive. Unlike the barn-style rear doors in the Clubman, the four-wheel drive appears to have a conventional rear opening hatch.
Like the front-driver, the all-paw version is expected to have petrol and turbo-diesel engines. The car is expected to go on sale in Europe later this year and possibly Australia early next year.
