Owners of new 2019 MINI models can now enjoy the new generation MINI Connected with built-in 4G SIM technology to enable owners to integrate their MINI more seamlessly into their digital lifestyle.
Safety and convenience
The New MINI Connected includes relevant services to maximise safety and convenience, offer up-to-date information, superb entertainment and staying connected to the people who matter most, even while on the road.
Unique to the BMW Group, MINI, like BMW, also features the Intelligent Emergency Call Response when the crash sensors for the seatbelt tensioners and airbags are activated, or when data from the yaw-rate sensor indicates an accident. This triggers an automatic call to the MINI emergency call centre, where the system provides relevant data to ensure the best possible response. The Intelligent Emergency Call can also be triggered manually to request help for other road-users.
TeleServices and MINI Online
Other features include TeleServices which transmits relevant vehicle data to MINI and the MINI service partner, who will then inform owners if their car requires maintenance or when the service appointment is due. In the event of a breakdown, issues can be resolved via remote diagnosis or by organising local roadside assistance.
There’s also MINI Online which provides useful information such as news and weather that can be read out via the audio system. Meanwhile, the newly available MINI Concierge Service supports owners with any request while on the move at the touch of a button. Using the built-in 4G SIM card, the service establishes a telephone connection to the MINI call centre whenever required, free of charge.
Synchronising the redesigned MINI Connected app (for Apple and Android devices) with a personal calendar can turn it into a personal mobility assistant and help drivers get to appointments on time.
“The BMW Group has over 20 years of experience in developing innovations that connect the driver to the car and to the world they live in. This expertise is now introduced in all MINI vehicles here in Malaysia with MINI Connected. In the age of personalisation and digitalisation, MINI Connected presents the best of both worlds with extensive connectivity capabilities and personalised services,” said Harald Hoelzl, MD of BMW Group Malaysia.
