I'd rather they introduced "safer" purchase variants than went too far with watering down the basic MINI concept to broaden the appeal of the hatch model.
Agree, MINI is now a brand, not a car, as long as they have strong guidelines as to what MINI stands for it should be safe

Marketing guys always make product decisions, based upon the user feedback on what they want, then the engineering guys make the product do those jobs and suggest the new things that the users haven't even thought about
