2014 MINI 5-door Spied for the First Time - Is This the Traveller?

MINI is developing a new 5-door version of their third-generation MINI and here we have the first spy shots of this new model, that is expected to arrive in 2014.

The prototype was caught testing in South Germany and reveals a longer wheelbase compared to the 3-door third-generation MINI, that is expected to debut in early 2013. It also has a higher roof line and classic rear doors, unlike the Clubman which has two short suicide doors at the rear.

Details are limited, but this new MINI model is rumoured to be called Traveller and should arrive in early 2014.

  • I’m not digging the greater slope on the rear window of both this car and the 2-door hatch mules we’ve seen. Much prefer the more upright rear end. At first glance though, this car looks like a 2-door, and on closer inspection just looks like a smaller Countryman. Very curious to see the final version.

    So the 2-door hatch has the same rear? It’s starting to look like a Scion with a big butt. Guess I’ll have to hope for a shooting brake style Clubman…

      They are still putting lots of cladding on this F series Mini.  Those are the same taillights that we’ve seen before, and the grill is still the R series added on, I believe.  And, I imagine they’ve played with the rear roof line a bit too.  Wait and see, there will be more spy cars seen as we get closer to production date.  I’ve also heard that production on the F series will be moved up, like they did in 2006 for the new then, R 56 series.
