Summer may come and go, but the engineers at MINI never cease updating the MINI lineup to make it even more efficient, connected, and fun to drive. To that end, they’ve created a series of updates designed to take the MINI lineup to the next level.
Firstly, from July 2018 onwards the MINI Clubman and Countryman can be specified with an advanced 7-speed dual-clutch transmission that not only decreases fuel consumption, but also increases your driving excitement with standard paddle shifters mounted to the steering wheel. These paddles allow you to manually select the transmission gear for easy passing maneuvers or to simply hear the engine growl.
Next up is the new Connectivity Package available for the MINI Clubman starting in July 2018. This package bundles an 8.8-inch touchscreen with Connected Navigation Plus, a MINI Touch Controller, Real Time Traffic Information, as well as a navigation map update via the integrated SIM card.
In terms of sound, the Connectivity Package will also include a Harman Kardon hi-fi speaker system with 12 speakers and an 8-channel digital amplifier for a grandiose output of 360 watts. A DAB tuner is also included, which allows the reception of digitally transmitted radio stations to be played with unmatched sound quality.
But that’s not all, this incredible package also includes Apple CarPlay, MINI Connected XL, and Wireless Charging to top it all off! Rest assured, that if you want your Clubman to be fully integrated into the world around you, this is the package to get.
Finally, MINI has promised that two of their models in the premium compact market will be fitted with automatic driving lights as standard. By simply turning the knob to “A” on the appropriate stalk, light sensors in the vehicle will dictate when your MINI’s lights will activate. As an added bonus, these sensors are sensitive enough to detect whether you’ve entered a parking garage or a tunnel and automatically activate the lights.
