Autocar Reviews The MINI JCW Paceman All4

Autocar does a first drive review of the MINI JCW Paceman All4 and decides:
From an enthusiasts’ point of view, there's quite a bit to like about the John Cooper Works Paceman All4. It is a genuinely engaging car to drive, with impressive grip, great traction, tenacious handling and a surprisingly good ride.

But at £29,440, it really should offer more. Its engine is eager in nature, but the hard-working four-cylinder unit ultimately fails to provide the bullish-looking three-door hatchback with the sort of performance its illustrious name suggests it should. We also have reservations about its suitability as a long-distance proposition. Tyre roar, even on the smooth Danish roads on which we drove, proved excessive, making it a chore at motorway speeds.

Smart buyers will choose the Cooper S Paceman All4 and pocket the £7090 difference.
