The MINI Paceman : The first Sports Activity Coupé in the premium compact segment.


Jakarta. The MINI brand is once again combining the expansion of its model range with a foray into a new vehicle class with the first Sports Activity Coupé in the premium small and compact segment – the MINI Paceman.


Driven by the same hallmark MINI go-kart feeling that the British premium brand is renowned for, the MINI Paceman comes with powerful dynamically stretched coupé lines and a variable-usage interior with an exclusive ambience. With its two doors and large tailgate, plus two full-size individual rear seats, the seventh model in the MINI family complements the elegant sportiness of its proportions with a new rendering of the familiar MINI interior.


“The MINI Paceman qualifies itself as a premium compact Sports Activity Coupé that offers sporting flair, practicality and rugged versatility. As a pioneer in the urban environment, the character of the MINI Paceman is vividly imbued with the innovative and inimitable style of the MINI brand. It targets at a modern group who appreciates a car with a confident appearance and one that offers infectious driving fun at the same time,” said Ramesh Divyanathan.


Design: powerful stature, sporty and elegant coupé lines.

The innovative concept of a compact Sports Activity Coupé is expressed in an exterior design that faithfully embodies the MINI Paceman’s multifaceted driving properties within the template of the established MINI design language. The front end exudes muscularity and presence, while dynamically sweeping lines and powerfully curved surfaces lace the flanks of the car with sporting elegance. The coupé-style roof, swooping downwards towards the rear, sits almost seamlessly atop the passenger compartment and its distinctive contours fit neatly into the coupé mould. The most eye-catching new feature of the rear end is the taillights which, in a first for MINI, feature a horizontal design.


Interior: exclusive ambience, impressive variability.

The MINI Paceman has been designed as a four-seater. Sports seats for the driver and front passenger are included as standard, and the pair of individual seats in the rear offer impressive shoulder room and headroom, outstanding lateral support and exceptional comfort. The side window controls, meanwhile, are integrated into the prominently three-dimensional door trim. The high-opening tailgate of the MINI Paceman and its low boot sill allow the luggage area to be accessed in comfort. Load capacity stands at 330 litres, increasing to 1,080 litres when the rear seat backrests are folded down.


The drivetrain: powerful engines.

The MINI Paceman comes with the powerful and efficient turbocharged petrol engine as MINI Cooper S Paceman (184 hp). Mated to the 6-speed Automatic Transmission Steptronic, the MINI Cooper S Paceman reaches 100 km/h from 0 in 7,8 seconds.


The chassis: a new take on the go-kart feeling.

The MINI Paceman’s cutting-edge chassis - consisting of a MacPherson spring strut front axle and forged cross members in tandem with a multi-link rear axle - underpins its hallmark MINI agility. The new model comes as standard with lowered sports suspension and DSC (Dynamic Stability Control). Electric Power Steering with Servotronic function likewise enhances the ever-present go-kart feeling on board the MINI Paceman.


Comprehensive safety equipment and high-quality comfort-enhancing features.

The high torsional rigidity of the MINI Paceman’s body plays an important role in both its agile handling and its impressive passive safety. Its standard-fitted safety arsenal includes front and side airbags, as well as side curtain airbags for both rows of seats. All seats are fitted with three-point inertia-reel seat belts. Front seat occupants will also find belt tensioners and belt force limiters, while in the rear ISOFIX child seat attachments are in place should they be required.


The MINI Cooper S Paceman comes with high-quality standard equipment including, automatic air conditioning, , harman/kardon hi-fi loudspeaker system (640 watts), electrically adjustable exterior mirrors, Park Distance Control, the two-part Centre Rail and full leather seats – underlines the car’s premium character. Comfort enhancing equipment, meanwhile, includes a sports leather steering wheel with gearshift paddles, multifunction buttons and cruise control, an electrically operated glass roof, radio MINI Visual Boost and xenon headlights. Added to which, MINI Paceman customers can also make use of innovative MINI Connected on-board functions such as web radio, Facebook and Twitter usage, Dynamic Music, Driving Excitement, Mission Control and the MINIMALISM Analyser.


The MINI Cooper S Paceman is introduced at Rp. 709.000.000,- off-the-road.

All MINI vehicles purchased from Maxindo come with MINI Service Inclusive, offering a five-year or up to 70,000 km free regular maintenance and two-year warranty without mileage limitation.
