Mini John Cooper Works Paceman (2014) review: 37 facts and highlights

1. better fuel economy (city)

Fuel economy is a measurement of fuel efficiency, based on how far you can travel with a certain amount of petrol (gasoline). A lower fuel economy means the car will be cheaper to run.
9.4l/100 km
Peugeot 301 Berline (2014): 0l/100 km

2. better fuel economy (highway)

Fuel economy is a measurement of fuel efficiency, based on how far you can travel with a certain amount of petrol (gasoline). A lower fuel economy means the car will be cheaper to run.
7.6l/100 km
Peugeot 301 Berline (2014): 0l/100 km

3. higher maximum torque

Torque is a measurement of an engine’s power, closely related to horsepower. More torque indicates a more powerful car, and is also a good indication of its acceleration.
260Nm
BMW 5 Series Gran Turismo 535i (2014): 400Nm

4. Has fully independent suspension

This allows all four wheels to move up and down independently, providing a smoother ride when, for example, going over bumps in the road.

5. better fuel economy (combined)

Fuel economy is a measurement of fuel efficiency, based on how far you can travel with a certain amount of petrol (gasoline). A lower fuel economy means the car will be cheaper to run.
8.7l/100 km
Peugeot 301 Berline (2014): 0l/100 km

6. shorter length

4.12m
Renault Twizy EV 13kW (2014): 2.34m

7. longer wheelbase

The wheelbase is the distance between the center of the front and rear wheels. A longer wheelbase provides the car with more stability and a smoother ride (although a shorter wheelbase can provide more responsive handling).
2.6m
BMW 5 Series Gran Turismo 535i (2014): 3.07m

8. greater cargo volume (seats down)

A larger cargo area is more practical as it allows you to transport more things. With some vehicles you can put the rear seats down in order to gain more space for cargo.
1079l
Fiat Doblo 1.4 (2014): 3200l

9. Has Bluetooth

Bluetooth is a wireless technology that allows you to easily transfer data between different devices, such as smartphones, tablets and computers.

10. greater cargo volume

A larger cargo area is more practical as it allows you to transport more things.
331l
Mini Clubman (2014): 1068l

11. higher Euro NCAP rating

The European New Car Assessment Programme (Euro NCAP) carries out safety tests for new vehicles, providing an overall rating for each car’s safety. It covers different areas such as safety for an adult occupant, child occupant or pedestrian.

Ford Fiesta ST (2014): 6

12. larger fuel tank

A larger fuel tank means that you have to stop to refill less often.
47l
Kia Rio LX (2015): 73l

13. Has a turbocharged engine

A turbocharger compresses the air entering the cylinders, allowing more air (and therefore more fuel) to be added - resulting in a more powerful explosion. This leads to an increase in horsepower without increasing the size and weight of the engine.

20. lower coefficient of drag

The coefficient of drag is one measurement of how well air travels around a vehicle. A lower value means it is more aerodynamic and the engine doesn't have to work as hard. It can result in faster speeds and lower fuel economy.
0.36Cd
Toyota Prius Two (2014): 0.25Cd

21. more cylinders

Although there are many aspects that determine the power, a higher number of cylinders is generally a good indication of the potential power of the engine.
