We saw the Mini Crossover Concept earlier this month way ahead of its Paris Motor Show reveal next month. Mini has just sent us over a couple of videos giving us a closer and detailed look at the Crossover Concept.
Besides a look at the overgrown Mini Cooper-like exterior, Mini gives us a closer look at the ‘Mini Center Globe’ (4:46 into the video). The Mini Center Globe is what Mini calls a “new version of the central instrument of the future.’
Probably the only thing the Mini Center Globe doesn’t do is tell your future. Besides that it’s a touch-sensitive multi-function display that controls all the major entertainment in the Crossover concept, Bluetooth, navigation. It also acts as an ignition starter. Instead of using the traditional key ‘all’ the driver has to do is place something called a Keyball into an opening on the top of the Mini Center Globe and that’s it. When you’re done driving simply press the Keyball and it’ll slide out of the Center Globe. Just don’t go playing catch with your Keyball.
