Mini teases its SUV


Video: Measuring over four metres, with four doors, four-wheel-drive and four single seats, the fourth variant of the Mini brand is shown off in this teaser video

Showing very limited detail, the Mini Countryman (or Crossman) can be seen driving in a psychedelic world.

A few details did slip out, such as the headlights and rear window wiper.

The Countryman will be Mini's SUV and will feature petrol as well as diesel options.

The engine lineup is expected to include a 1.6-litre four-cylinder and turbocharged variant. Six-speed manual and automatic transmissions are also expected.

The Mini Corssover Concept (white car pictured) was first revealed at the 2008 Paris Motor Show.

The Mini Countryman/Crossman is expected to go on sale near the fourth quarter of 2010.
