Will BMW kill off the 3 door hatch MINI?
Sources say that many within BMW believe that they should kill the 3-door hatch when the current generation ends production in 2022. It's said that the convertible cancellation will happen around the same time (another rumor), which leaves us with 5-door models for the future. Well, what do we know so far? Read below:


Sales of 3 door hatchbacks have been dwindling in Europe and are traditionally not as sought after in China. Traditionally the US hasnít been a bastion of sale for such cars either. But the traditional MINI 3 door hatch had been a big seller. In December of 2012 for instance it sold a staggering 3,011 units. Fast forward to last month and MINI USA only sold 867 units.
