Mini CEO: Mini SUV to be called ‘Crossman’

So far we’ve known the upcoming Mini SUV, or SAV, as the Mini Colorado. However in a recent conversation with Auto Motor und Sport, Mini’s CEO said that the Colorado is only the working title. When the next Mini variant hits the roads in 2010, it may carry the name ‘Crossman.’

Engine sizes for the Mini SAV are expected to start at 1.4 liter and will go up to 1.6 liter. A 2.0 liter variant could also be in the works.

BMW will be outsourcing production of the SUV to Magna International. The Mini Crossman is expected to hit the roads around 2010 with 80,000 units planned annually.
