The Mini Cooper S Coupe may not be on the top of the list of sports cars or luxury cars, but this car is a hands-down heavyweight when it comes to technology. While in-car entertainment systems are commonplace these days, the unique placement of it in the 1.6-liter four-cylinder Cooper S sets this car apart.

A 6.5-inch high-definition display is embedded in the center of the speedometer. The car comes equipped with Bluetooth, the ability to integrate your smartphone into the system and a USB/iPod adapter. Drivers can control the system using the car's joystick, voice activation or steering wheel buttons.

You won't have to worry about bringing your car charger with you when driving the Cooper S because there's a phone charger in the center armrest. Need to access Facebook, Twitter, Google or Web radio while you're on the road? Download the free Mini iPhone app.

Cutting-edge technology isn't only reserved for the cabin of the Cooper S. To take your Cooper on the open roads, pop it into sport mode, and it will automatically adjust settings to give you rapid acceleration, response and tighter steering.
