An Aussie Review Of The 2014 MINI Paceman JCW

Keith Didham reviews the 2014 MINI Paceman John Cooper Works for Australia's carsguide.com.au and finds it to be a "fun" car.  Here is part of his opinion:
The Mini displays a degree of bump oversteer when running in sports mode, thanks to the firm-ish stick-to-the-road ride; the passenger side door mirror is partly hidden by the high window sill; the boot floor gets surprisingly warm, thanks to the exhaust; access to the rear (we drove a two-door) is a tad tight; and that Mini trademark in the maxi-size speedo (OK, it has other instruments embedded) in the centre of the dashboard is, well, let's call it dumb. Thank goodness the Mini has a digital speedo in front of the steering wheel.

Surprisingly, the Mini can swallow a maxi-size load once you fold the rear seats down. There's no spare wheel (Mini uses run-flats) so boot space isn't bad compared with similar size cars.
