Mini updates range for 2017 with new instruments and Apple CarPlay

Mini infortainment

Mini has updated its model line-up for 2017 with a range of new design, functionality and infotainment improvements.

From July, all new Mini models will feature an enhanced cockpit instrument display with a new night design and a fuel level display that offers greater precision.

Operation of Mini Driving Modes and the head-up display will also be revised. Changing from the standard setting to Sport or Green mode will now be facilitated by means of a toggle switch positioned underneath the air conditioning controls.

In a brand first, Mini Clubman and Mini Countryman will offer Apple CarPlay and an alertness assistant will be introduced on the 3-door hatch, 5-door hatch and convertible models.

The alertness assistant will be included with the optional Mini Visual Boost screen, Mini Navigation or Mini Navigation XL. If the distance covered or the driver’s behaviour indicates that the driver may be losing concentration, the system encourages the driver to take a break with a graphic displayed on the central display screen.
