MINI to Reveal New Tech, Driving School at NY Auto Show

MINI won’t be bringing any world debuts to the 2013 New York Auto Show, but that doesn’t mean the company doesn’t have anything to announce.

The brand says it will announce “several new partners whose apps will be fully integrated with MINI Connected,” to offer more in-car app connectivity to its drivers. Details about which apps will be on the way are still unavailable, but current options include Twitter, Internet radio stations, Facebook and news updates.

Details about a new performance driving school will also be released during MINI’s press conference next week in New York. That will likely include information like pricing, but the brand already said it will be in addition to the new driver training already offered. This program will be for drivers 18 years or older and will be held at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

The Bond Street Clubman will be in New York as well after making an appearance earlier this month in Geneva.
