FULLY ELECTRONIC POWER STEERING
Some have used words like "super-responsive" and "precise" to describe the feel of driving a MINI. Others have preferred such descriptions as "Unfreakingbelievable!" Either way, you experience an amazingly direct feel of the road whenever you grab the wheel.
Besides giving you great all around control, since the Electronic Power-Assisted Steering (EPAS) system is fully electronic, modifications to its feel can be made right in the middle of motoring by your MINIs central computer. Whether its working in tandem with the Sport Button or automatically adjusting to your driving speed, so you get smoother steering for maneuvering into parking spaces and firmer steering for high speeds.
On top of all that, it improves engine performance and reduces fuel consumption.
