Jul 07, 2014 - 6:00 PM - by

The 2015 MINI Paceman debuted earlier this year, but now we have our first detailed look at the high-performance John Cooper Works variant.

The British automaker has released over 150 new photos detailing the 2015 MINI Paceman JCW, which is powered by a 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine with 218 hp and 207 lb-ft of torque. All models of the 2105 Paceman are launching this month and include the Cooper Paceman, Cooper S Paceman, Cooper D Paceman and Cooper SD Paceman.

The standard Cooper Paceman will come with a naturally-aspirated 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine providing 122 hp and 118 lb-ft of torque while the more powerful Cooper S Paceman features 190 hp and 177 lb-ft of torque.

All models of the 2015 MINI Paceman are available with ALL4 all-wheel drive.

2014 MINI Cooper vs Ford Fiesta 1.0L

Is a turbo three for you?
by Luke Vandezande

Would you buy a car with a three-cylinder engine? Believe it or not, the North American three-cylinder revolution has begun.

Well, sort of… You can get the Ford Fiesta with a three-cylinder in any trim level you want as long as it’s the mid-level SE model with a manual transmission and virtually no options. Otherwise, it’s back to the same old four-cylinder as before.

MINI, on the other hand, is going all in by offering a turbocharged three-cylinder as the only engine in the Cooper Hardtop.

So which company has it right? Are turbocharged three-cylinders really good enough to replace four-cylinders as the engine of choice or is Ford being smart in treating its smallest engine as a niche product for customers who put high mileage above all else?
