Automobile.com reports "http://rumors.automobilemag.com/6655906/news/rumor-room-for-seven-in-mini-countrymans-future/index.html"


"According to Auto Express, Mini has plans to install a third row in the Countryman, bringing total seating capacity to seven. In our initial tests of the Countryman, we noted that it's not short on rear-seat accommodations. For a more commodious Countryman, Mini upper management says that "we could take the wheelbase from 2.60...to around 2.70 [meters]."

Is a stretched Countryman a stretch too far for the Mini brand? Or is it a step in the right direction for the growing families of Mini enthusiasts?"
