From March 2018, all new MINI models will be available with in-built 4G connectivity. The refreshed MINI Connected will allow drivers to access personalised services designed to make day-to-day mobility and planning even easier – and, in so doing, integrate their MINI seamlessly into their digital lives.

The first models to be made available with this new and extensive connectivity capability are the new MINI 3-Door Hatch, new MINI 5-Door Hatch and new MINI Convertible. Existing features in the portfolio, such as Intelligent Emergency Call and Teleservices, will be joined by new services including the Concierge Service, Real Time Traffic Information with navigation map updates and MINI Online.

Update heralds the arrival of the latest digital services in MINI models.
The new in-built 4G SIM card and updated MINI Connected app will allow MINI drivers to access a variety of new digital services. 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 MINI 3-Door Hatch, MINI 5-Door Hatch and MINI Convertible models.

The newly available MINI Concierge Service provides an excellent source of assistance while on the move. The Concierge 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 (push messages to the driver’s smartphone to assist punctual departure), Send to Car (for importing destinations from a smartphone to the car), Remote Services (e.g. for locking the car’s doors from a smartphone) and – in electrified MINI models – a charging timer, charging station search facility and personal efficiency status display.

The spread of digital connectivity options offered by the MINI brand is rounded off by Apple CarPlay, which is offered as standard with MINI Countryman and MINI Clubman models in the UK and optionally available as part of the MINI Navigation Plus package for MINI 3-Door Hatch, MINI 5-Door Hatch and MINI Convertible.

CO2 emission information.

The values for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and energy consumption shown were determined in a standardised test cycle according to the European Regulation (EC) 715/2007 in the version currently applicable. The figures refer to a vehicle with basic configuration in Germany and the range shown considers transmission (automatic or manual) and the different wheels and tyres available on the selected model and may vary during the configuration.

The values of the vehicles labelled with (*), are already based on the test cycle according to the new WLTP regulation and are translated back into NEDC-equivalent values in order to allow a comparison between vehicles. More information on the transition from NEDC to WLTP test procedures can be found here.

These figures are intended for comparison purposes and may not be representative of what a user achieves under usual driving conditions. For plug-in hybrid vehicles and battery electric vehicles the figures have been obtained using a combination of battery power and petrol fuel after the battery had been fully charged. Plug-in hybrid vehicles and battery electric vehicles require mains electricity for charging. The CO2 emissions labels are determined according to Directive 1999/94/EC and the Passenger Car (Fuel consumption and CO2 Emissions Information) Regulations 2001, as amended. They are based on the fuel consumption, CO2 values and energy consumptions according to the NEDC cycle.

A guide on fuel economy and CO2 emissions which contains data for all new passenger car models is available at any point of sale free of charge. For further information you can also visit this link.
