What's New in the 2015 MINI Cooper Paceman?

The Paceman receives only minor changes for 2015, including some exterior color revisions and a new base-level wheel design. 

Which Cooper Paceman is the Best?

The front-wheel-drive, turbocharged Cooper S Paceman hits the sweet spot in terms of value, performance and fuel economy. We would want a manual transmission and the panoramic sunroof in our Paceman, which makes for a pretty sweet ride at a pretty reasonable price. Find a Mini Paceman for sale


How Much Does a 2015 MINI Cooper Paceman Cost?

The Paceman comes in three trim levels: the base-level Paceman, the mid-level Cooper S Paceman and the sporty John Cooper Works Paceman.

The base-level Paceman ($24,500) includes a lot of standard equipment. Features include 17-inch alloy wheels, power accessories, air conditioning, premium vinyl upholstery (dubbed leatherette), cruise control, a CD player, an auxiliary jack, Bluetooth and a USB port. Base-level Paceman models are only offered with front-wheel drive.

Step up to the Cooper S Paceman ($27,900), and you'll get a turbocharged version of the base model's engine. The result is 181 hp and 177 lb-ft of torque, an increase of 60 horses and 61 lb-ft. Fog lights and sport seats are also standard.

Topping the range is the high-performance John Cooper Works Paceman ($36,600), which is only offered with all-wheel drive. The JCW model boosts power by another 27 horses and also adds a sport-tuned suspension and a performance exhaust.

Standard features only tell some of the story. Mini also offers plenty of options, ranging from wheel choices, paint colors and interior scheme, to a panoramic sunroof, rain-sensing wipers, leather upholstery, heated front seats, satellite radio, a navigation system and Mini's Mini Connected infotainment system. All-wheel drive is also optional on the Cooper S Paceman.

2015 MINI Cooper Paceman vs the competition

Kia Sportage -- The stylish Sportage lacks the Paceman's 2-door design and cool interior vibe, but it compensates with an excellent available 260-hp turbocharged engine.

Land Rover Range Rover Evoque -- If you don't mind spending the extra coin, the baby Range Rover delivers a more upscale driving experience, although it's less fun.

Volkswagen Golf GTI -- The GTI arguably has a higher-quality cabin than the Paceman, and it's not as quirky -- in case you find the Paceman to be a little over-the-top.
