CAR TALK

Mini Rocketman
Ok, so it’s an awful name but this is the coolest Mini since Alec Issigonis penned the original. Unlike the Minis in the current range, this one – called Rocketman – is a real mini Mini at last. Launched last week at the Geneva motor show, the car has a 3+1 seating layout and points to how future Minis will look.

VW Bulli
This VW Bulli concept is a spiritual successor to the iconic VW T1 bus of the 50s and 60s. Unveiled last week at Geneva, the bus has six seats, including a stowable rear bench seat and reclining seats that allow the interior to transform into a compact camper. Oh, and it has an iPad-controlled entertainment system so it must be cool.

Suzuki Swift S-Concept
If hot hatches are your thing this concept previews the hottest sport version of the Suzuki Swift yet. Suzuki has lowered the body by 30mm and the car is wider by 60mm than the standard Swift. That big rear spoiler gives the car a very dynamic look. Inside, it has a sporty steering wheel, Recaro Sport seats and carbon fibre trim.
