“When hooked up to your smartphone with the relevant apps MINI Connected provides an endless stream of digital information – and entertainment. Follow your friends on Facebook, tweet about your travel destination or check in on Foursquare when you get there. Stay up to date with the latest RSS news feeds, stream music from radio stations from all over the world with web radio or look up the nearest pizza place via Online Search. With optional voice-control, you can even have your MINI read things out for you so you can keep your hands on the wheel and eyes on the road. With more and more MINI Connected ready apps constantly being developed, your MINI Connected experience will get better with every mile you drive.”

“A MINI isn’t just a car. It’s a MINI. That’s why it’s packed with features you won’t find in any other car out there. The Driving Excitement feature is the easiest way to really amp up the fun when you’re taking your MINI for a spin. The Excitement Analyser, for instance, assesses how safely drivers can accelerate and steer the car, and how well planned their gear changes and braking can be. The MINIMALISM Analyser records driving data that will personally help drivers environmentally streamline their driving style in a way that’s as fun to use. While the analyser runs in the background, the driver and their driving style set the beat with the Dynamic Music feature and its 13 exclusively designed MINI tracks. The Mission Control feature gives MINI drivers the ability to interact directly with their car. MINI will let them know outside air temperatures, or give them a friendly reminder to fasten their seatbelt and other situation-dependent messages. Your MINI finally has the character and personality you always knew it had.”
