We’ll admit it; we made fun of MINI’s new ’Mission Control’ feature, saying that it has the feel of Sesame Street. And no, we’re not taking it back. There’s a fine line between fun novelty and just plain annoying and MINI’s ’Mission Control’ feature is teetering close to the latter.
That being said, Automobile Magazine associate editor Eric Tingwall proposes a slightly different voice to accompany us inside the 2010 Mini Cooper Camden: none other than KITT from the Knight Rider fame. Now, we admit, we were big fans of the original show with the Hoff himself playing the role of Michael so this hearing KITT’s voice isn’t as annoying as those three voices who always seem to be in quite a "jolly" mood.
