BMW & Toyota To Build Starlet
BMW engineering, Mini handling and Toyota reliability. This is a recipe for success. Latest news from Europe says that BMW and Toyota Motor Corp. may expand their cooperation to include the joint development of a new addition to BMW’s Mini range.
BMW is considering an entry-level car for mini that will be called the Mini Minor. Toyota could launch its own version of the model, which may be badged as the Starlet which has been a docile nameplate for some years now.
If built, the Minor is expected to be smaller and less expensive than Mini’s core model, the three-door hatchback. Based on the showcar Rocketman, the new Mini Minor will be 3450mm long, which is 370mm shorter than the three-door hatch.
