BMW chief designer Adrian van Hooydonk has revealed MINI is considering an expanded lineup that could include larger vehicles.

According to van Hooydonk, BMW thought MINI owners would eventually upgrade to a BMW when they needed a larger vehicle. The styling guru went on to tell Automotive News, "That hasn't happened, and therefore we needed the Countryman and the Paceman to open up the brand."

The addition of the Countryman has certainly helped sales and it has the brand considering even larger models. Nothing is official but van Hooydonk suggested the company could be considering a larger crossover. Our spy photographers have also snapped photos of a five-door Cooper which should appeal to customers looking for something a little more mainstream.
