The updated Mini is not a mini as it completely misses the whole point of the original mini, which was to get the most space in the smallest package. The BMW version is a vaguely mini shaped Ford Escort.
Same goes for the "new beetle". It's not a beetle, it's a Polo in drag.
FIAT got it right with the 500, even down to including a twin-cylinder engine option.
If you want to see what Alec Issigonis would have produced, were he still around to design the updated mini, have a look at the Daihatsu Cuore VI. And to see what it would have looked like as a mini, what Daihatsu did with it to make the Trevis...
