If you are not satisfied by the new MINI Paceman, you should take a look as this version, as you will change your opinion about this new vehicle: ladies and gentlemen, this is the MINI John Cooper Works (JCW) Paceman.
As expected, the car uses the same engine found on the MINI John Cooper Works (JCW) Countryman and we are talking about a 1.6-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine delivering 218 hp and 280 Nm of torque (207 lb-ft) between 1,900 and 5,000 rpm (this can be increased to 300 Nm of toque (221 lb-ft) for short periods between 2,100 and 4,500 rpm using the overboost function).
With these numbers the Paceman JCW sprints from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 6.9 seconds and has a top speed of 226 km/h or 140 mph for the manual version and 224 km/h (239 mph) for the automatic version.
Still, average fuel consumption in the EU test cycle is 7.4 litres (automatic: 7.9 litres) per 100 km / 38.2 (35.8) mpg imp. The engine is bolted to a six-speed manual gearbox as standard, while a six-speed automatic can be ordered as an option.
Regarding the looks of the new car, we find the well-know JCW body kit consisting of a new front bumper, new side sills, rear bumper with integrated exhaust system and a rear roof spoiler. The design is completed by the 18-inch light-alloy wheels.
