Before we get into the driver assist technology in the 2017 MINI Cooper S Hardtop, it first needs to be said that people have always loved driving MINI cars, even before all the bells and whistles were introduced. It’s an experience comparable to none and once you drive one, you understand why. The fact that modern technology has led to many advancements in its design and capabilities only adds to the uniqueness that is the MINI brand. But these systems definitely don’t hurt:
- Parking Assist – This system automatically scans for appropriate parking spots, then steers the car perfectly into place, leaving the gas and brake power to the driver. Park Distance Control helps even further in tight spaces by sending an alert when objects are detected in the rear pathway.
- Heads-Up Display – The MINI head-up display helps keep the driver informed of pertinent information, like speed and fuel level, without having to take their eyes off the road. Information is displayed just above the steering wheel, directly in the drivers line of vision, thus ensuring optimal safety.
- Collision and Pedestrian Warning with City Braking Function – The collision warning system alerts the driver when there’s too little space between the MINI and the car in front of it or when the speed difference is excessive. At the same time, it detects potential pedestrians in front of the car. The brakes are automatically engaged, while visible and audible alerts are made to the driver.
