Courtesy of MotorAuthority via MotoringFile, we now have a more clear view of what the next generation MINI's interior will look like. Putting aside some of the trim details (BMW steeringwheel, misfitting shiftknob boot, etc) on this prototype tester, this is a real deal. The next Countryman will feature an interior derived from the above design theme with more sophisticated, grown up feel. More detailed insight is available at MotoringFile.
At the start of MTTS 2012, Dr. Kay Segler has confirmed that MINI Paceman will be the name of the upcoming Countryman coupe. Likely to be unveiled at this year's Paris auto show, it will be available in the stateside sometime next year.
