Funky, unique styling; good ground clearance; available all-wheel-drive; good handling
The MINI Paceman is a unique car, but it still shares its engines with the rest of the MINI lineup. The base engine powering Cooper models is a 1.6L 4-cylinder engine making 121 horsepower. The Paceman Cooper S is powered by a turbocharged version of the same engine, producing 181 horsepower. The top-of-the-line Paceman John Cooper Works again features the same engine but with even more tuning, to produce a stout 208 horsepower and 192 foot-pounds of torque. All engines are mated to 6-speed manual transmissions with 6-speed automatics being optional.
There are four basic trims for the Paceman: Cooper, Cooper S, Cooper S ALL4 and John Cooper Works ALL4.
The base Cooper offers 17-inch wheels, a leather steering wheel with audio and cruise controls, stainless steel pedals, an onboard trip computer, remote entry, air conditioning, a climate controlled glovebox, power windows, Bluetooth and an auxiliary input jack for an MP3 player.
Cooper S versions get the more powerful engine along with a rear spoiler, a flat black grill, power adjustable outside mirrors, color-adjustable ambient lighting and leatherette upholstery. The Cooper S ALL4 features all-wheel-drive, in addition to all the amenities offered on the Cooper S.
The John Cooper Works also comes with all-wheel-drive, helping to more effectively utilize all of the 208 horsepower the car makes. The John Cooper Works edition is equipped with sport-tuned suspension, 18-inch alloy wheels, speed sensitive wipers and heated mirrors and washer jets.
As is typical of MINIs, the Paceman offers many customization and luxury options. Most of the interior trim, along with the roof, are offered in several colors, ensuring that every Paceman ends up looking somewhat unique. Luxury options include a Harman/Kardon sound system, heated seats, a panoramic sunroof, a navigation system and 6.5-inch display, power folding mirrors, rear park distance control and several types of leather seating.
MINI considers safety on the Paceman to be of great importance, and MINI's engineers have come up with plenty of solutions for keeping occupants safe. Electronic brake distribution and stability control systems work with anti-lock brakes to keep the Paceman on the road in extreme conditions, while seven airbags and a crash sensor do their job in the unfortunate event of an accident.
The 2016 MINI Paceman is unchanged from last year's model. The only differences are a slight reshuffling of trim packages and the discontinuation of a couple of color choices.
The 2-door MINI Paceman is a unique vehicle in its category. The diminutive hatch's virtues are versatility, fuel economy, handling and trademark MINI styling. With a trio of available engines, the Paceman can be equipped as anything from a compact and economical runabout to a "hot hatch." No matter which engine buyers choose, they will be treated to the classic MINI driving experience, complete with a high quality interior and surprisingly good handling. Prices start at around $23,500.
