These are the first official teaser pictures of the upcoming Mini Countryman 4x4.
Although the video stills reveal few details, they confirm that the recent Mini Beachcomber concept was essentially a stripped-down version of the production car, which will be unveiled at the Geneva motor show in March and go on sale this September from around £17,000.
The new model, which will most likely be called the Countryman, is a shade over four metres long and shifts Mini into more family-orientated territory.
The Countryman will be the first of the BMW-generation Minis to be built outside of the UK. Instead of being made at Cowley, the Countryman will be manufactured by Magna at its Graz plant in Austria.
