Mini Mini Review

MINI ups the pace - Mini Mini Review

YOU can’t say MINI has not been trying to entice us to buy with so many models now based on the same platform.

The latest is the Paceman – a sort of three door coupe version of the Countryman – with a lowered roofline on the same longer wheelbase, giving plenty of room for four.

MINI's trademark go-kart handling is bound to be part of its appeal of course but in this case, there will be the option of all-wheel drive to make it even better.

Lowered sports suspension will also be standard, but I would go for the standard ride height and better comfort, which is a no-cost option.

There will be four engine options - two petrol and two diesel - all with a six-speed manual gearbox, or an optional six-speed automatic.

Petrol power comes from the existing 1.6-litre turbo with either 122 or 184bhp and diesel from 1.6-litre 112 or 2.0-litre 143bhp.


A new interior specific to the Paceman might make it stand out, but the big central speedo- come-everything-else display is still included.

However, electric window switches have been moved to the door and the two individual rear seats have been designed for maximum comfort.
