Mini saloon - The Mini is no longer mini

3 posts in this topic

BMW are considering making a saloon version of the Mini. When they started building their new version of the classic Austin/Rover/BL Mini, a lot of Mini purists weren't happy because of the sheer size of it, claiming it lost the spirit of what a Mini was supposed to be, a Mini. I wonder if they will rename it the Maxi in a nod to the old Austin Maxi? What are your opinions on the new design?

I'm in two minds about this particular Mini version- on the one hand it looks like something Uncle Fred can use as live bait on his next fishing trip, and on the other hand it reminds me of a cross between a Z4 and a lawn mower.

I do agree with you though; whatever it is, it is not a Mini.

I like the maxi idea to be honest as company can have two option named very conveniently based as per the sizes: Mini and Maxi, how cool will it sound.

Although it sounds bit funny, but they are unique as no other car brand has same naming convention.
