Although some people may find the 2017 Mini Cooper Paceman price a little too overwhelming, there are lots of value in terms of the sharp handling, distinctive style, and decent passenger space. Other compelling reasons include an entertaining drive quality, crossover-like ride height, highly customizable, an available all-wheel drive system, and reasonably fuel-efficient engines. The Paceman release date should be expected sometime in the first half of 2017.
One prime example of how a vehicle can manage to have slightly different versions of the same things is the 2017 Mini Cooper Paceman. Based on the previous-generation Cooper, the new model follows closely the basic silhouette in terms of dimensions. It is roughly 4.5” taller, and 15” longer than its progenitor. Therefore, it offers an improved ride height and passenger space for its backseat passengers.
Even with the injection of extra legroom for the backseat passengers, they will certainly need an expertise whenever they are getting in or out of the vehicle. That said, the Paceman might not be very practical, nor the most practical. Other downsides include a modest cargo space, a pokey acceleration especially with the base powerplant, less headroom, and a firm ride quality relative to what its competition offers.
On the upside though, the new 2017 Mini Cooper Paceman redesign brings about lots of appealing stuff including a crisp handling, a sport-tuned suspension system, an optional all-wheel drive system for added traction, and a lively acceleration. Its interior also offers substantial contemporary add-ons, though, some might argue it’s a mixed bag in today’s marketplace.
With the downsides discussed above in mind, we’d recommend you check out what the segment offers before committing to the 2017 Mini Cooper Paceman. Rivals include the Mazda CX-3, Ford Focus ST, Fiat 500X, Ford Escape, Mazda CX-5, and the Volkswagen CX-5.
