The Countryman remains the company`s big brother, as Warming also mentions that the new Clubman will be as big as it should be for a parking lot anywhere in the world.

This is actually an official response to the rumors being launched back in November, stating that the BMW subsidiary would come up with a bigger Mini than the average size.

The company has already changed its sizing policies, coming with bigger Minis now, but the subsidiary doesn’t rule out the possibility of developing a smaller version the Rocketman concept for instance.

With this in mind, the manufacturer is trying to bring back the original “mini” cars to the audience, as a recall of the old time`s sake.
