2015 Mini Cooper to Get New Driver Assist Technology

Heads up display among the new technology

Some details have leaked about the 2015 Mini Cooper and the driver assist technologies that will be coming with it. Most of the new driving technologies will come directly from BMW and are expected to eventually expand to the entire Mini line. The vehicle will have a camera mounted in front of the rear view mirror and will bring with it a collision and pedestrian warning system.

The system will automatically engage brakes at speeds of up to 35 mph. The camera will also be used in the adaptive cruise control and high beam assist systems. The adaptive cruise control working speeds ranging from 20 to 85 mph allowing the system to automatically regulate the distance between vehicles in front of the Mini.

The car will also get a new heads-up display featuring a small folding display unit mounted between the windshield and steering wheel. The screen will offer speed limits and navigation props. The car will also get a rearview camera and parking assistance system.

2015 Mini Cooper S Hardtop 4-Door Driven: A Regular Mini WITH FIVE DOORS

Sep 14 2014 2:47pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

Although most Mini models to date have had rear accommodations, those seats suggested more practicality than they actually delivered. The latest Mini Cooper hardtop, for example, is about as well-suited to carrying adult passengers in the back as a Little Tikes Cozy Coupe—and that thing doesn’t even have back seats.
