Our colleagues from IndianAutosBlog have imagined a very possible look for the upcoming five-door hatchback version of the recently launched all-new MINI.

Now that MINI has released the third (modern) generation of its namesake model, it's no wonder many have already digitally envisioned other body styles which are in the pipeline. We already saw a potential styling approach for the coupe, roadster and convertible, while today we have a look at the five-door hatchback derivative.

The more practical MINI was grabbed on camera by our spy photographers several times so it's not that hard to imagine its appearance. It will be one of the eight to ten models that will form the new MINI lineup and will come with a stretched wheelbase to provide more room for those sitting in the back. It is expected to be a bit taller than the standard version and will have a small window after the C-pillar.

A market launch is likely to occur sometime next year.
