New Mini to debut Nov. 18, 2013

BY GERRY MILES

To make the next small thing a big thing, Mini sent out a PR pic of its next model that will be unveiled Nov. 18 on the day of Sir Alec Issigonis’s 107th birthday at its Oxford plant and two days later in Tokyo. It will go on sale in the first quarter of 2014.

Issigonis introduced the world to the Mini in 1959 with its compact design aided by the transverse-mounted engine, front wheel drive, wheels pushed out to all four corners to maximize interior room – such as it was then – within a small footprint.

Stay tuned.
