the MINI Paceman has always offered athletic design and a sporty driving experience. Now with the unveiling of the new version at the Auto China Beijing show, there is even more on offer to appeal to design-conscious customers.
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 an additional 190 hp. MINIMALISM technology contributes to reduced fuel consumption and emission figures in all other model variants, as well as enabling increased figures for acceleration, in-gear acceleration and top speed. All variants of the new MINI Paceman meet the EU6 exhaust emission standard.
The MINI John Cooper Works Paceman also joins the refreshed line up with an output of 218 hp and fitted with MINI’s ALL4 all-wheel-drive system as standard.
The innovative MINI Paceman includes a distinctive and highly expressive body design which embodies the properties of hallmark MINI design.
The upright front section, with its large headlamps and hexagonal radiator grille contour, afford the Paceman a purposeful look, while the elongated silhouette reinforces its sportiness. Its distinctive character is also underscored by the rear lights which are horizontally arranged for the first time on a MINI.
In certain models the radiator grille of the MINI Paceman now features a specific contour and grid structure. The new MINI John Cooper Works Paceman can be identified by a horizontal radiator grill rib in red, with the John Cooper Works logo positioned on the honeycomb pattern. The MINI Cooper S Paceman also features a curved ‘S’ in red on the front radiator grille.
In addition to the coupé style doors, other striking features include the aggressively sloped roof which is available in a contrasting colour. The flowing roof line, falling off to the rear, and the tapering side window graphic create a stretched, wedge-like silhouette.
The new Piano Black Exterior trim affords a high-end look to selected surfaces. It is to the surrounds of the headlamps and rear lights, on the diagonal links between the A columns and the front wheel arches and on the optional roof rails and the cross-rib in the radiator grill on the MINI Cooper Paceman. Chrome Line Exterior is also available as a no cost option.
New colours for the MINI Paceman include Jungle Green metallic and Midnight Grey metallic. Black or white 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.
Light alloy wheels come as standard in all model variants of the MINI Paceman. Newly designed for the MINI Cooper and the MINI 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 the MINI Cooper SD Paceman are also lighter than their predecessors. They are also available in a two-colour design. MINIMALISM versions of these wheels are also available featuring tyres with reduced rolling resistance for reduced fuel consumption and exhaust emission levels.
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. The structure of their light sources in full LED technology helps make the front view of the new MINI Paceman distinctively expressive.
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 exclusive ‘lounge’ ambience of the second row is likewise enhanced by the armrests in the side rear trim panels. The new MINI Paceman benefits from acoustic optimisation which has reduced road noise against the outgoing model.
Adding to the sporty flair inside the cockpit, speed and display dials are now anthracite-coloured in the style of the MINI John Cooper Works Paceman across all models, while the John Cooper Works model bears the logo in the central instrument. The standard trim of the new MINI Paceman likewise includes chrome touches around the ventilation controls, clearly reflecting the car's refined premium characteristics.
