As the world's first Sports Activity Coupé in the premium compact segment, the MINI Paceman has always offered athletic design and a sporty driving experience. The new MINI Paceman boasts fresh design details and a sportier interior finish, while at the same time offering an optimised balance between driving performance and fuel consumption. The new MINI Cooper S Paceman is also more powerful yet more efficient than ever, with its engine developing 190 hp. MINIMALISM technology contributes to reduced fuel consumption and emission figures in all variants, as well as offering better acceleration, in-gear flexibility and top speed.
The MINI John Cooper Works Paceman also joins the refreshed line up, with an output of 218 hp and benefiting from MINI’s ALL4 all-wheel-drive system as standard.
Expressive design with fresh details.
In addition to the coupé style doors, other striking design features include the aggressively sloped roof which is available in a contrasting colour. The flowing roof line, which slopes down towards the rear, and the tapering side windows create a stretched, wedge-like silhouette. The new Piano Black Exterior trim lends a high-end look to selected surfaces. These can be found on the surrounds of the headlamps and rear lights, on the diagonal links between the doors and the front wheel arches and on the optional roof rails.
New colours for the MINI Paceman include Jungle Green metallic and Midnight Grey metallic. Black or white contrasting roofs are available as a no cost option, while a contrasting Chilli Red roof is available exclusively for the MINI John Cooper Works Paceman. Sport and bonnet stripes are also available in various colours.
New light alloy wheels with reduced weight and LED fog lights as standard.
Light alloy wheels come as standard in all model variants of the MINI Paceman. Newly designed for the MINI Cooper and Cooper D Paceman, the 16-inch light alloy wheels in 5-Star ‘Air Spoke’ Design help increase the fuel efficiency of these models, with their reduced weight and optimised aerodynamic properties. The 17-inch light alloy wheels in the new 5-Star ‘Triangle Spoke’ Design for the MINI Cooper S and Cooper SD Paceman are also lighter than their predecessors. MINIMALISM versions of these wheels are available featuring tyres with reduced rolling resistance for improved fuel economy and reduced exhaust emissions. Meanwhile, the MINI John Cooper Works Paceman features 18-inch light alloy wheels in ‘Twin Spoke Black Burnished’ design as standard.
LED fog lights including parking and daytime LED driving lights are now standard across all MINI Paceman models. They provide an intense, bright white light with a much higher level of energy efficiency than conventional lamps.
Optimised acoustic comfort and refined premium characteristics for the interior.
The MINI Paceman is designed as a 2+2, with two sports seats for driver and front passenger and two individual seats at the rear offering excellent shoulder and head room, lateral support and comfort. The new MINI Paceman benefits from acoustic optimisation which has reduced road noise against the outgoing model.
Adding to the sporty feel of the cockpit, instrument dials are now anthracite-coloured in the style of the MINI John Cooper Works Paceman across all models.
Fast and efficient thanks to enhanced MINIMALISM technology.
All petrol and diesel engines now meet EU6 exhaust emission standards. In addition, the high degree of efficiency of the modern four-cylinder power units, and MINIMALISM technology, ensure that the balance between driving performance and efficiency has been fine tuned. Measures applied to boost efficiency include optimised air ducting in the underbody, lower friction wheel bearings and tyres with reduced rolling resistance.The new MINI Cooper S Paceman’s four-cylinder spark ignition engine with twin-scroll turbocharger, direct injection and variable valve control sees power increase from 184 hp to 190 hp.
MINI ALL4 all-wheel-drive system available across range.
The MINI Paceman is the second model in the range to offer MINI’s ALL4 all-wheel drive system. ALL4 distributes power at continuously variable levels between the front and rear axle by means of an electromagnetic centre differential and is available for all model variants.
All MINI Paceman models can be combined with a six-speed automatic transmission as opposed to the standard six-speed manual. The automatic transmission offers the possibility of manual gear selection with Steptronic – including shift paddles.
Fun, safety, comfort and networking at the highest level.
The unmistakable MINI go-kart feeling is guaranteed by the combination of McPherson spring struts and forged wishbones on the front axle, a multilink rear axle and electromechanical power steering. The integrated MINI safety concept comprises a crash-optimised body structure and a full range of active and passive safety features. This puts occupant safety on the same level as the MINI Countryman, which was awarded the top five-star Euro NCAP crash test rating. The new MINI Paceman comes with LED daytime driving lights as well as tyre pressure control on each individual tyre as standard which give the driver an early warning of potential loss in each tyre.
Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) also forms part of the standard equipment of the MINI Paceman. DSC including Electronic Differential Lock Control (ELDC) is fitted as standard in conjunction with the ALL4 all-wheel-drive system in the MINI Cooper S, Cooper SD and John Cooper Works Paceman.
Generous standard equipment and a wide range of options.
An extensive range of optional equipment is available on new MINI Paceman. There are numerous upholstery types, interior colours, interior trims and Colour Lines to choose from. Bi-Xenon headlamps with adaptive turning, automatic air conditioning, comfort access, electrically operated glass sunroof, a removable tow bar (on some models) with a trailer load of up to 1,200 kilograms, the MINI Navigation System, multifunction steering wheel with cruise control, Harman Kardon hi-fi speaker system and model-specific John Cooper Works accessories are all also available from the options list.
Standard features include air conditioning, MINI Centre Rail between the front seats and a high-end radio system comprising CD player with MP3 capability, AUX-in socket, DAB radio, Bluetooth, five speakers and rear Park Distance Control.
MINI Connected offers extensive smartphone integration.
With MINI Connected, the intelligent networking of driver, car and the outside world are combined through cutting-edge technology. The integration of entertainment and online functions offered by modern smartphones helps make driving a MINI even more convenient and entertaining. It enables the use of vehicle-specific functions such as Mission Control, Dynamic Music, Driving Excitement and MINIMALISM Analyser as well as online-based services.
