MINI might be changing the way we think of minivans by the year 2020. The British automaker is considering expanding its lineup to include a five-door station wagon, a van, and possibly even a notchback sedan.

The all-new MINI Roadster will hit dealerships this month and is the sixth MINI model. Next on the list could be a station wagon based on the new BMW Group front-wheel drive platform that is debuting with the second-generation MINI Cooper hardtop in 2014. The MINIvan (see what we did there?) would share the same platform as the current Countryman.

The only model that is currently up in the air is a notchback sedan that MINI is considering for the Chinese market. According to a BMW inside source, “The MINI sedan is now being hotly debated.”

If these rumors were to be confirmed, one could look back to what MINI’s global brand boss, Kay Segler, said back at this year’s Detroit Auto Show. Segler announced that three models would be added to the MINI lineup by the end of the decade, but at that time didn’t express what those models would entail.
