Orange is for stop-and-go. Red signals stationary traffic. A yellow or red warning appears in ‘Traffic information’ the moment there is news available for a specific route. Details of the delay and possible detours are provided when clicking on ‘Traffic information'.

mini connected - intelligent emergency call mini connected - intelligent emergency call


If you are not able to directly call for help in an accident, it’s good to know that MINI can. With the optional, intelligent Emergency Call system, your MINI automatically sends a distress call to the locally available mobile services. A SIM card and integrated telematics unit transmit relevant data such as the exact GPS coordinates of your MINI, chassis number (VIN), type of collision (e.g. whereabouts of impact), status of airbags and seatbelts, number of passengers and direction of travel. Specially trained personnel will then establish contact with you, inform the appropriate emergency services so that help can reach the scene as fast possible. They will give you support by telephone – in your own language wherever possible. This function can also be activated manually.
