The New Mini Paceman

Due here in March 2013 the all new MINI Paceman has been unveiled. Styled as a coupé interpretation of the Countryman this new version is the seventh different bodystyle to come from one tiny car. Based on the five-door Countryman crossover the Mini Paceman has two fewer doors than the Countryman

Packed with MINI character and obvious design cues which tie it to the rest of the range the Mini Cooper Coupe sports a roof clearly influenced by the coupe and has a rising waistline, lowered suspension, more muscular rear quarters and a revamped rear end.

Two petrol and two diesel engines will be offered initially, with a high performance John Cooper Works version due later. All come with a six-speed manual gearbox, or the optional six-speed automatic with Steptronic function for manual control.

For petrol buyers, the MINI Cooper Paceman features a 1.6-litre 122bhp unit offering a 0-100kms time of 10.4 seconds, fuel economy of 47.1mpg with CO2 emissions of 140 g/km. The MINI Cooper S Paceman uses the same engine, tuned to deliver 184bhp. It will sprint to 100kms in 7.5 seconds. Fuel economy is 46.3mpg and emissions are 143g/km.

For those who prefer diesel, the MINI Cooper D Paceman uses a 1.6-litre 112bhp turbocharged engine with a 0-100kms time of 10.8 seconds. It will provide owners with a frugal 64.2mpg fuel economy and 115g/km emissions. The flagship diesel is the MINI Cooper SD Paceman, which gets a 2.0-litre 143bhp engine. Its 0-100kms time is 9.2 seconds. Fuel economy is 61.4mpg with an emissions figure of 122g/km.

For buyers who want the reassuring grip that comes with four-wheel drive, MINI’s ALL4 system is available on the Cooper D, SD and Cooper S Paceman, models. And for those seeking the ultimate in MINI performance and desirability, a John Cooper Works Paceman version is in development.

Inside the interior has been designed specifically for this model and there is seating for four with generous levels of head, shoulder and knee room. Load space is a very decent 330 litres with the rear seats in place and 1,080 litres with them folded.

It will go sale on 16 March 2013 with prices starting at just €27,660 (OTR).
