MINI Paceman (2013)

The new MINI Paceman has arrived – designed as a coupe version of the popular MINI Countryman with five versions available from launch. The MINI Cooper Paceman starts at just £18,970 on the road.

The Paceman is the seventh member of the MINI family which also includes the Hatch, Clubman, Convertible, Countryman, Coupe and Roadster.

In the UK you have the choice of 4 - four-cylinder engines, two petrol and two diesels’. All are equipped with a six-speed manual gearbox, or the optional six-speed automatic with Steptronic function for manual control.

In the MINI Cooper Paceman the 1.6-litre 122bhp petrol engine has a 0-62mph time of 10.4 seconds, fuel economy of 47.1mpg (official combined cycle) with CO2 emissions of 140 g/km. The MINI Cooper S Paceman uses the same engine, but it is tuned to deliver 184bhp. It will complete the 0 - 62mph sprint in 7.5 seconds. Fuel economy is 46.3mpg (official combined cycle) and emissions are 143g/km.

Two diesel engines are available – the MINI Cooper D Paceman uses a 1.6-litre 112bhp turbocharged engine with a 0-62mph time of 10.8 seconds, a combined fuel economy of 64.2mpg and 115g/km emissions. The flagship diesel is the MINI Cooper SD Paceman, which gets a 2.0-litre 143bhp engine. Its 0-62mph time is 9.2 seconds and a combined fuel economy is 61.4mpg with an emissions figure of 122g/km.

For those seeking the ultimate in MINI performance, the 218bhp John Cooper Works Paceman accelerates from 0-62mph in 6.9 seconds.

MINI’s trademark go-kart handling is a key part of the Paceman’s appeal, enhanced by the optional all-wheel drive transmission. MINI’s ALL4 system is available on the Cooper D, SD and Cooper S Paceman, models.

All models feature lowered sports suspension as standard although regular suspension and ride height are available as a no-cost option.

Although the MINI Paceman is strictly a four seater the two individual rear seats offer generous levels of space and comfort and have been styled around a lounge concept. A two-section version of the MINI Centre Rail storage and attachment system – first seen in the Countryman comes as standard. A full-length variant is available as an option.

Practicality hasn’t been sacrificed at the expense of the contemporary styling - the rear seats fold down and the rear load carrying capacity expands from 330 litres to 1080 litres. The high opening tailgate offers extra convenience.

Occupant protection includes front and side airbags. Side curtain airbags are fitted in both the front and rear. ISOFIX child seat attachments in the rear and a tyre pressure warning are on every Paceman.

Driver aids include Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) as standard across the range, with Dynamic Traction Control (DTC) including Electronic Differential Lock Control (EDLC) on the MINI Cooper S Paceman, Cooper SD Paceman and Cooper D Paceman ALL4.  16-inch and 17-inch alloy wheels are standard, with 18-inch or 19-inch on the options list.

The MINI Paceman is equipped with the following standard equipment - air conditioning, powered door mirrors and front sports seats. Options will include Xenon Adaptive Headlights, Park Distance Control, an electrically operated glass roof plus the MINI navigation system. Advanced infotainment functions are available via MINI Connected. A range of optional equipment packages will also be available.

There are eight paint finishes available including the new Brilliant Copper, Blazing Red and Starlight Blue. There is an extensive choice of bonnet stripes, upholstery choices, interior surfaces and Colour Lines.

The MINI Paceman went on sale in the UK on the 16th March 2013.
