Since the BMW`s important subsidiary British based MINI has encountered rough times in the past few years, especially for the 2014, the German carmaker has recently decided to size down the MINI lineup.
This way, BMW would prefer less models but higher-end MINI products, this way reducing costs and reviving the entire MINI fleet. Out of eight, only five models will be left on the market.
Rumors have been long stating the keeping on the market of the three-door and five-door versions of the Countryman crossover, the Clubman wagon as well as the classic hatchback. Now, the rumors are confirmed by Peter Schwarzenbauer, the head at MINI.
