We can’t wait to see how the Paceman drives, because while the power seems adequate and the excellent MINI six-speed manual is standard (six-speed auto is an option), the Paceman sports a longer wheelbase and higher center of gravity than the conventional Cooper – characteristics that may dilute its trademark driving dynamics.
But then again, maybe they won’t. The Paceman comes with a bevy of driving aids such as MacPherson spring strusts, a multi-link rear axle, Stability and Traction Control and 16-19 inch alloy wheels. It may be larger than the Cooper, but the Paceman is still a two-door MINI and that’s enough to pique our interest.
