New MINI Paceman launched

Styling and interior updates for new MINI Paceman 2014 crossover

The new MINI Paceman was revealed at the Beijing Motor Show and it shares many of the same updates seen on the new MINI Countryman at the New York Motor Show last week.

This means larger headlights, a hexagonal radiator grille, which features a red ‘S’ on Cooper S models, lighter alloy wheels, and a refreshed interior to bring the Paceman up to date with the new MINI hatchback.

The new Paceman also gets the same Piano Black trim on certain exterior features, including the lights and front wheel arches.

The car can be ordered in two new extra colours called Jungle Green metallic and Midnight Grey metallic, and can be specified with black or white contrasting roofs at no extra cost. The high-performance MINI John Cooper Works Paceman is available with an exclusive Chilli Red roof.

The Paceman uses the same engines as the Countryman, so efficiency and power improvements are identical. Paceman Cooper D CO2 emissions drop slightly to 111g/km from 115g/km, and the Paceman Cooper S produces 139g/km instead of 143g/km. The 1.6-litre petrol engine in the Cooper S also benefits from a small power increase, now generating 190bhp.

The whole Paceman range now gets the sporty anthracite-coloured instruments first seen on the existing John Cooper Works Paceman. Standard equipment will include LED daytime driving lights, tyre pressure sensors, a CD and MP3 hi-fi, digital radio, Bluetooth, and rear parking sensors.

Like the new MINI Countryman, all Paceman models will have the ALL4 four-wheel drive system available as an option.

The new MINI Paceman will be available to order from late spring, with the start of production scheduled for July. Prices are likely to increase by around £400 – the current model starts at £18,980.
