Before revealing last week that they would be introducing a new model with more legroom for passengers, MINI was dropping not so subtle hints on the auto show circuit with these concept cars. The new models won't be available for awhile (MINI says sometime within the next three years) but I'm liking the direction they're playing with, which seems to be a cross between the current MINI and an Aston Martin.
