"MINI Trades Its Soul For Cabin Comfort"

That is how CNET captions its review of the 2013 MINI Cooper Paceman.  Here is its opinion summary:

The good: The Mini Connected app brings many informative and fun connected features in to the 2013 Mini Cooper S Paceman. The turbocharged engine delivers a good mix of economy and power. The Paceman retains Mini's unique styling language. 
The bad: The Paceman gains size and weight, sacrificing Mini's go-kart handling. The navigation system uses an odd color scheme and has limited zoom levels. The Mini Connected app only works on the iPhone. 
The bottom line: A stylish and easy driving car with many fun, connected features, the 2013 Mini Cooper S Paceman works fine for mundane driving, but enthusiasts should stick to its smaller sibling.
