    'As the new [URL=''%5Dfive-door MINI[/URL] hit the road this week, head of MINI design Anders Warming stressed the brand was still keen on the idea of a tiny city car, but “won't reveal anything more [to the world] until [a viable design] is ready”.

    The Rocketman concept (below) starred at 2011's [URL=''%5DGeneva Motor Show[/URL], hinting at a new MINI rival to the [URL=''%5DSmart ForTwo[/URL] and [URL=''%5DToyota iQ[/URL]. While its wide-eyed front end has inspired the new MINI hatch and five-door, the idea of a new entry-level model appeared dead in the water due to the high cost of developing it.
    [LEFT][COLOR=#000000] But Warming suggested to us that the Rocketman was still on the table. “For sure, a MINI should always be a small car, so [a new city car] would be appropriate for the brand,” he said. “At the moment, we don't have the right tech solutions, but we are working on it. We don't yet have a final solution, you could say.”
