MINI Unveils 2015 Paceman Range
2015 MINI Paceman offeres fresh design, optimised aerodynamics and revised engines. The Sports Activity Coupe was unveiled at Auto China in Beijing. The new model includes a distinctive and highly expressive body design. Of course – it carries all of the characteristics typical for a MINI. At the front it is equipped with large headlamps and hexagonal radiator grille contour. Its elongated silhouette on the other hand reinforces its sportiness. At the rear we see lights which are horizontally arranged for the first time on a MINI.
New trim color is available – it is caled Piano Black. Chrome Line Exterior trim 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 also available. On the other hand, the contrasting Chilli Red roof is offered exclusively for the MINI John Cooper Works Paceman. Vaarious colors are also available for the sport and bonnet stripes.
As a standard, MINI offers a range of new light alloy wheels with reduced weight and LED fog lights. Precisely, the Cooper and the Cooper D Paceman come equipped with the 16-inch light alloy wheels in 5-Star Air Spoke Design. In addition, the 17-inch light alloy wheels in the new 5-Star Triangle Spoke Design were specifically created for the Cooper S and the Cooper SD Paceman. They are also available in a two-colour design. MINI John Cooper Works Paceman runs on 18-inch light alloy wheels in Twin Spoke Black Burnished Design as standard.
Inside, 2015 Paceman benefits from acoustic optimization. Speed and display dials are now anthracite-coloured in the style of the MINI John Cooper Works Paceman across all models. In addition, the model will also include the new ALL4 all-wheel drive system. MINI ALL4 distributes drive power at continuously variable levels between the front and rear axle by means of an electromagnetic centre differential.
The engines offered in the range are listed below along with their details. They can be combined with an optional six-speed automatic transmission instead or the standard six-speed manual. The suspension technology included in the car features the combination of McPherson spring struts and forged wishbones on the front axle, a multilink rear axle and electromechanical power steering.
