While big, round center display is a trademark feature of Mini's current line-up, in the Crossover Concept, Mini turned this display into the Center Globe, a sort of 3-D version.
Displays are "stratified" in different levels and highlighted to varying degrees, depending on what's needed at the time. The view can look entirely different from the drive and passenger's perspectives, allowing the passenger, for instance, to check e-mail while the driver sees navigation information.
The driver and passenger can interact with the globe using its touch-sensitive surface, a seperate trackball or controls on the steering wheel.
The car's current speed, meanwhile, will always be shown around the outer edge of the bulging display screen.
