2017 Mini Paceman Interior, Specs

Mini Paceman was introduced on the market in 2012, and as the name suggests, the vehicle is usually small in size. The compact crossover SUV suits people who love uniqueness and attention. Despite its size, Paceman has a lot to offer to its customers. Mini is in the process of releasing a new model, 2017 Mini Paceman, in order to ensure its customers enjoy the real modern-day charm of small-sized cars.

2017 Mini Paceman – First Impression:

You should expect a heavier Paceman this time round. This is because the car comes with increased dimensions and weightier materials. The entire exterior looks beautiful with a two classic color combination. We are also looking forward to more color choices to suit specific styles of people.

The trademark headlights of the automaker will be present in the front side of 2017 Mini Paceman. We have great expectation that the lights will get the LED technology. From photos taken during the testing stage, we can confirm the shape of the roof. It will be slopping from the front to back, but it will be raised up a bit to create a more spacious interior. The major highlight in the interior of 2017 Mini Paceman is the spacious cabin. The outgoing model has an issue with the space, but the automaker has solved this problem by creating ample space for passengers and their luggage. Five passengers will be able to travel comfortably in the new Paceman.

A well-equipped center console that extends to the back will be another thing of interest in the new Mini car. The automaker reintroduced the iconic round dials and adds digital controls on the console. Some related features we are anticipating for include navigation system and climate control system. We are also looking forward to a number of connection options.

Safety will not be compromised in 2017 Mini Paceman. The automaker will make sure the car is safe and secure by installing features such as airbags, safety belts, collision sensors and alert and parking assist.

2017 Mini Paceman – Under the hood:

Mini will power its new Paceman with two engines: 1.6-liter I4 and 2.0-liter I4. Expect the 1.6-engine to generate 185 hp and 150 lb.ft while the 2.0-liter to generate 210 hp and 180 lb.ft. There are unconfirmed rumors that a hybrid powertrain may feature in the new car. The engines will be mated to a 6-speed automatic or 6-speed manual.

The car will use a front-wheel drive, with an all-wheel drive being optional. It will take less than 9.0 seconds to accelerate from 0-60 mph. Expect to save a lot on fuel because the car is very fuel-efficient. Fuel consumption stands at 53 mpg city and 60 mpg highway.
