Mini Cooper to get iDrive

BMW's 2007 Mini Cooper -- unveiled earlier this month -- will feature an optional computerized interface similar to the iDrive system offered on BMW brand cars. The software will be accessible via a small joystick located behind the shifter, according to MotoringFile. Like the standard iDrive interface, the Mini system will also feature voice control. No further details are available at this time. BMW did not detail the system when it announced the 2007 Mini.
