From this month (March 2018), all new MINI models will be available with in-built 4G connectivity.
The refreshed Connected vehicle will allow drivers to access personalised services designed to make day-to-day mobility and planning even easier. New services including the Concierge Service, Real Time Traffic Information with navigation map updates and MINI Online will be added to existing features in the portfolio. These include Intelligent Emergency Call and Teleservices.
The first models to be made available with this new connectivity capability are the new 3-Door Hatch, new 5-Door Hatch and new Convertible.
MINI Connected Services will be available as standard on the MINI Countryman and MINI Clubman for UK customers, and optionally available as part of the MINI Navigation Plus package for 3-Door Hatch, 5-Door Hatch and Convertible models.
The newly available MINI Concierge Service can be contacted by the push of a button around the clock to source information and address data for the driver, research connections and offer practical tips during the journey.
Other highlight features include Time-to-Leave Notifications, Send to Car (for importing destinations from a smartphone to the car), Remote Services and – in electrified MINI models – a charging timer, charging station search facility and personal efficiency status display.
