Roman and Nathan of TFLCar.com got their hands on the new 2013 MINI Cooper S Paceman, the same vehicle that BMWBLOG has been testing in Germany for the past week. The ALL4 Paceman went on sale this year and it is offered in both petrol and diesel configuration.
Under the bonnet of the MINI Cooper S Paceman, the German engineers placed a twin-scroll turbocharger and direct injection to generate maximum output of 135 kW/184 hp at 5,500 rpm. Plus, peak torque of 240 Newton metres (177 lb-ft) is on tap between 1,600 and 5,000 rpm. An overboost function is at the driver’s disposal to provide particularly powerful bursts of acceleration, increasing torque to as much as 260 Newton metres (192 lb-ft) for a short time between 1,700 and 4,500 rpm.
All of which enables the MINI Cooper S Paceman to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h / 62 mph in 7.5 seconds (automatic: 7.8 seconds) on the way to a top speed of 217 km/h / 135 mph (212 km/h / 132 mph). Despite this smile-inducing acceleration, average fuel economy in the EU test cycle stands at an impressive 6.1 (7.1) liters per 100 kilometers / 46.3 (39.8) mpg imp and CO2 emissions are just 143 (166) grams per kilometer.
In this fun and interesting TFLcar video we find out just how fast the newest MINI all-wheedrive Cooper S will go from 0-60 MPH in a real life testing situation.
