Mini Unleashes Seventh Addition to Lineup
|   Saturday, August 11, 2012
Mini has been relentlessly trying to bring out several versions of the original Mini Cooper and so far has done an impressive job doing so. Other than the original two door vehicle, the car has mutated into a clubman Wagon, a van like version of the wagon, the mini cooper roadster and the 2 seat coupe. And let's not forget the 4 door Mini Countryman.

Now the Mini has once again given birth to another remarkable vehicle, the Mini Paceman Cooper S which said to hit American showrooms very soon.
Mini has clearly invested a lot of effort and money in producing a sportier and attractive version of the Mini Countryman. Completely restyled after it's concept version in Detroit last year , the Mini Paceman has been styled to be much more sleek, powerful and attractive for the young sport lovers.

It looks nothing less than a shrunken crossover of a sedan and an SUV, much like a Land Rover but the new Mini Paceman has been completely configured to run on all 4-wheel drive for increased traction; A unique power boost not seen much in the previous models. With a 1.6 liter engine the car is said to give out nearly 120 horsepower but the sports version of the Mini Paceman, the Mini Paceman S is said to have a super charger that will allow the car to give out nearly 181 of horsepower. Despite the extensive amount of energy already offered in the car, the drivers are waiting to hear word if John Cooper Works will be getting his hands on the model. JCW has had remarkable success with their involvement in the previous Mini Countryman JCW. If so, drivers are expecting to see a 1.6 litre super charged 211 horsepower engine in the works.

The interior of the car has also received some tinkering. The cabin of the Mini Paceman features bucket seats, allowing much room and space for the passengers and an identical dashboard to the one in the Mini Countryman. Even the structure and platform of the car seem similar to the Countryman except its roof is nearly 2 inches lower, figures since they expected to make the car much swifter and a toy for the drift lovers. Further to suit it's racier concept, the Mini Paceman has completely new Chassis, with lower stance and shock absorbers that will be supported by a lower center of gravity.

IN comparison with the Countryman S the driving experience of the Mini Paceman is not at all special, but it is much different than it's inspiration. It will most definitely please a keen racer while he is drifting across the track. There is also said to be more turbulence along rough roads in the Paceman than there was in the Countryman. After back to back comparison with the CountryMan the Paceman has yet to deliver the driving excellence of it's older brother and these works are currently being implemented as we speak. The production plant is set to be in Graz, Austria, same as the Countryman range.
