Laziest mini concept ever

http://www.topgear.com/uk/car-news/m...man-2012-02-20


The mini clubvan.

Seriously? What a half arsed attempt, the drivers side rear door is even more pointless than it was on the clubman.

Like a Kane's of granard job.

It could replace the Focus and Corolla van!
Looks like a bit of a pointless stunt to me. Too small for sheets of ply or bales of hay.

They usually get focus vans where I work, now it's all 2012 Astra vans (old model type)

Its a van, who cares?? It will sell well with owner type small businesses though, who want to stand out from the crowd!

Saw a basic one of those with steel wheels the other day. If ever there was a car bought for the badge that was it. Painfully ugly.

I don't think they even fit properly into some medium vans (like the Trafic). Its an obvious genesis for Mini, plenty of people will buy it.

No more lazy than Ford making a van out of the Focus.
I see this selling very well!
