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.

Oct 22 2014 10:29am CDT | Source: Autoblog

Filed under: MPG, BMW, MINI, Legislation and Policy After the huge problems that Hyundai/Kia experienced with its mislabeled fuel economy labels, you'd think that any time an automaker has to adjust its mpg numbers, heralds would be shouting from the rooftops. But, after Ford admitted to three big mistakes with its numbers for the 2013 C-Max Hybrid and Mercedes-Benz had to lower the fuel economy rating for the C-Class, ...

Video: Tribute To The Original Mini Cooper

The present-day Mini Cooper may be more of a fashion accessory than an affordable, fuel-efficient vehicle, but that wasn’t always the case. The original Cooper was created in response to Britain’s oil crisis of the late 1950s and came in a compact, affordable package. It was UK’s version of the Volkswagen Beetle; it was a people’s car.The tiny economy car debuted in 1959, seven years after Morris and Austin merged to form the British Motor C ...

Oct 7 2014 2:00pm CDT | Source: Top Speed

The Alfa Romeo MiTo is arguably one of the most under-appreciated compact cars of our time. It’s a solid performer that has been on the market for a few years, but it doesn’t get nearly the same amount of love as the Mini Cooper. The Italian automaker hopes to change that with the introduction of the MiTo Junior, a special edition model that made its debut at the 2014 Paris Motor Show.The MiTo Junior pays homage to the old Giulia GT 130 ...

Oct 6 2014 7:52am CDT | Source: Autoblog

Filed under: Government/Legal, Hatchback, Mini The Mini brand and its products have typically been a runaway success for BMW, but sales of the retro hatchback dropped a drastic 20.5 percent last month, and have been doing such pretty much all year. The reason, according to Jalopnik, is that the new model has been held up due to EPA certification. Mini told our compatriots, "Sales have dropped because our supply has been so limited. MY 2015 Mini Hardtops have also not been able to g ...
