Neither of the concepts were actually presented at Geneva, but these CGI's were shown on a screen on the stand.<p>Both of these things look real cool, but isnt the second one (the mini-moke look-a-like) going to be considered as a standard car?

I like the CrossUp, but not the Tender.

Interesting concepts, the Tender reminds me of the Moke, great idea. The Crossup is okay, kind of weird with a big overhang.

Where does Mini goes with their cars? I mean, they give new designs of their mini every 1-2 years.. what next? an SUV mini?

An SUV could well be the next Mini, the mini SUV is an excellent niche market in the UK, dont know about other places.
