2014 Mini Paceman ALL4 | Review, Price, Interior, Exterior, Engine. – Welcome to Neocarsuv.com, we will provide the latest information about the Mini Paceman ALL4. 2014 Mini Paceman ALL4 is one brand new car from Mini that was released in 2014. We will also review about the price, interior, exterior and engine of the 2014 Mini Paceman ALL4.
Mini’s PR spinmeisters are boldly proclaiming the upcoming 2014 Mini Cooper S Paceman as the first premium grade “Sports Activity Coupe” ever created. But whatever they want to call it and however they want to bill it, the Paceman is something of an outlier, much like the Countryman upon which it’s based.
The choice of all wheel drive MINI models is poised for further expansion in March 2013. That’s when the MINI Paceman will be launched, boosting to eight the number of models available with ALL4 as standard or as an option. The first Sports Activity Coupé in the premium compact segment sees ALL4 optionally teaming up with the diesel engines in the MINI Cooper SD Paceman (105 kW/143 hp) and MINI Cooper D Paceman (82 kW/112 hp), as well as the petrol unit under the bonnet of the MINI Cooper S Paceman (135 kW/184 hp). Also primed for action is the MINI John Cooper Works Paceman. Fitted with the all-wheel-drive system as standard, it converts the power of its 160 kW/218 hp, race-developed engine into extreme driving fun with supreme assurance in any situation. All models come as standard with a six-speed manual gearbox, while a six-speed automatic can be ordered as an option.

Engineers say that the production Paceman will out-accelerate comparable Countryman variants to 60 mph by roughly 0.2 seconds, with a top speed upped to 135 mph. Mini says fuel efficiency will remain exactly the same as the Countryman, which is rated at 25-27/31-35 city/highway mpg, depending on configuration. In Europe, Mini expects to charge a 1500 euro premium (around $1850) on a comparable Countryman that starts at $22,450 in the States.

In models equipped with ALL4, the DSC system also comes as standard with DTC (Dynamic Traction Control) mode, which allows controlled slip through the driven wheels to ease moving off on loose sand or deep snow. Added to which, when the stability system is deactivated (in DSC Off mode) an electronic locking function for the front axle differential comes into play. In tight corners it brakes a spinning wheel as required to enhance handling. Known as Electronic Differential Lock Control (EDLC), this system enhances the car’s traction without adversely affecting its steering properties.
In maintenance of its sporting pretensions, the Paceman is strictly a four-seater, its left and right seats separated by a reconfigurable center console. Ingress and egress are easy and there is plenty of room for four adults. Compared with the Countryman, cargo space is further compromised. The Paceman’s trunk will be even smaller than the Countryman’s 14 cubic feet with the seats in use and 41 cubic feet with the backrests folded. For reference, the VW GTI offers a maximum of 46 cubic feet and a seats-in-use volume of 15. The ergonomically challenged dashboard with its grotesquely oversize speedometer carries right over, but one major improvement in the Paceman will be seen soon on the Countryman as well: The virtually inaccessible window switches migrate from the center stack to the doors.

All of which means ALL4 can now offer drivers of eight MINI models a noticeable boost to traction, directional stability and agility through corners. With four all-wheel-drive variants and the choice between manual or automatic gearboxes, the MINI Countryman makes its own contribution to the impressive variety of the brand’s ALL4 range. ALL4 is available as an option for the MINI Cooper S Countryman, MINI Cooper SD Countryman and MINI Cooper D Countryman, while the MINI John Cooper Works Countryman sends its eye catching power through all four wheels as standard.
ALL4 was developed specially for MINI models and, since its introduction in 2010, has broken new ground and won over additional target groups. The all-wheel-drive system uses an electromagnetic centre differential to distribute drive seamlessly between the front and rear axles. In normal driving situations ALL4 diverts up to 50 per cent of the engine’s power to the rear wheels, rising to as much as 100 per cent in extreme conditions, such as on ice and snow-covered surfaces. The control electronics of the MINI ALL4 system are integrated directly into the DSC (Dynamic Stability Control) management unit, enabling drive to be channelled through the wheels as required in a matter of milliseconds.

The rake also reduces headroom for the rear captain’s chairs by 0.4 inches. From what we could tell, the drop is barely noticeable: I’m 5’10,” and my head didn’t touch the scalloped ceiling. Rearward visibility, however, is compromised with the low roof/thick C-pillar combination. The stylized helmet also penalizes rear trunk capacity by 0.7 cu-ft to 15.8 cu-ft with the rear seats up. While elbowroom when seated in the two back buckets isn’t a problem, the same can’t be said for your knees. Much like in the Countryman, Mini’s rail system splits the foldable seats and can be fitted with useful accessories (cup holder, storage bin, armrest, etc.).
