MINI Paceman Leaked

Quote:

Official spy photos of the Mini Paceman were released by the company recently which showed off the car sporting a bit of camo, but now we have full photos of the new three-door Countryman.

The Paceman sits 0.4 inches lower than the Countryman and loses 1.6 inches in overall height, giving it a more aggressive coupe stance than the standard car. Mini has confirmed that there will be two engines available, which will make 120 hp in the standard car, and 181 in the Paceman S. It has also lost 44 lbs compared to the standard Countryman, which will make it a quicker car.

Watch for the online debut of the Paceman next week, and the official debut at the 2012 Paris Motor Show.

If they stuck a proper engine in the JCW version of this, I'd have one.

You mean a BMW M3's twin turbo and 4 wheel drive?

That would work! :D

But seriously, with 211bhp the Countryman JCW is grossly underpowered - even the Works hatch is starting to look slow and underpowered when you consider the competition (Mégane Renaultsport 265 for example). It's main redeeming feature is the handling, but that's one of the most obvious MINI traits which the Countryman is lacking.

It needs a highly tuned 4-pot 2-litre turbo, or a nice grunty 5-pot 2.5-litre turbo (à la the Mégane, or the old Focus ST respectively) - either that, or they stick a proper BMW engine in. Imagine this thing with ALL4 and the 135i engine in it? 300bhp, with massive scope for aftermarket tuning - I'd be down the showroom tomorrow with my deposit in hand!

Yeah, I like it. Nice colour too.

Matchu Sep 11th, 2012 12:23 PM

Aye indeed....nice looking Mini :-)

Blackhawks Sep 12th, 2012 03:29 AM

BMW's N20 engine would be more than fine. Is that too much to ask for from the MINI beancounters?

hello,i m Lin

Chellwil Nov 6th, 2012 08:21 PM

so, is this basically a 2 door version of the countryman. it has the same basic looks but hard to judge the size from this pic.

Blackhawks Nov 7th, 2012 06:51 PM

Nice eye Chellwill - you are correct!

I think everything is the same as the Countryman A-frame forward and the biggest change will be the sloped roof (aka Range River Evoque style). It also has a nice bulge around the rear fenders, new rear lights, and ugly P-A-C-E-M-A-N lettering on the hatch door.

I can't wait to see it in person!

bonton7 Nov 23rd, 2012 12:36 AM

Hmmm
 
Like the countryman, this will probably grow on me. As of now ... blech.

Blackhawks Nov 27th, 2012 06:38 PM

I'd like to see it side-by-side with an Evoque for a perspective on size. I seen another Evoque this week and they look awesome. Except you get a Ford designed engine!
