With the image of the Mini Coupe, presented in the Frankfurt Auto Show in September, still fresh in our mind, we have yet another compressed crossover, which combines the toughness of an off-road vehicle with the style and comfort of a mini-car, to count on. Slated to be launched at the 2010 Detroit Auto Show, the Mini Beachcomber as its name suggests is a new crossover concept with an open-top and open-sides for a thrilling ride in and around the city. Introducing a new all-wheel-drive system, the ALL4, the radically open body four-seater presents a raised suspension with large wheels for enhanced ground clearance. Though we are short on technical details, but the MINI Beachcomber will possibly generate power from the turbocharged four cylinder engine. For further info and technical specs you’ll have to wait for the 2010 Detroit.
