    Interesting article about MINI's future line-up.

    From the descriptions in the article....not sure any of these appeal to me! But will have to see what the BMW boffins come up with!

    Quite like the appeal of them downsizing the Mini again and the concepts look quite funky.

    The Traveller name also sounds appealing, does that mean we are going to need the old ronseal wood protection again??

    All rather interesting for what the future holds. I’m not sure about it all but will see how it pans out.

    The size of the modern MINI hatch has never been an issue for me and the only criticism I've ever heard levied against it is by those who maintain it should be the size of the classic. Whilst I admire that MINI are keen to reduce the size of the core MINI, I'm not sure whether I'd actually go for one. The current F-series 3-door is still pretty compact whilst having a decent amount of room.

    That having been said, I did predominantly use my F56 hatch (and previous R56 hatches) as a 2-seater, so maybe a smaller MINI isn't completely out of the question for me.

    What would be beneficial though is MINI having a more affordable car to sit under the current hatch.

    NMS overnight runs are going to be interesting in 10 years time, to see who is first to get to the charger points

    Feet were made to fit car pedals. If we were meant to walk, we'd have pogo sticks for legs
