MINI’s capacity to be quirky and off-beat has struck again, only this time, we’re not quite sure why they resorted to putting one of those child instructional videos on their car.
We’re talking about MINI’s new Mission Control System, which, for all intents and purposes, are computer voices that "evaluate a vast range of vehicle, driving situation and vehicle environment-related signals and supplies the driver with relevant information and instructions in customary MINI style." It doesn’t sound remotely annoying based on the description, but we invite you to wath this video made by Car and Driver when they drove a Mini 50 Camden Editions to try out the the MCS.
We honestly didn’t know if we were listening at the MCS or an audio-recorded tape of Sesame Street because, quite frankly, you wouldn’t be able to tell the difference.
