2014 MINI Paceman review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2014 Mini Paceman?

The 2014 Mini Paceman is a compact two-door car with seating for four. It is available in three trim levels: Cooper, Cooper S and John Cooper Works. Based on the four-door Mini Hardtop, it competes with models like the Ford Focus and Mazda3.

What's New on the 2014 Mini Paceman?

For this model year, the Center Rail sliding console system has been eliminated in favor of two cupholders for the backseat. Heated mirrors and washer jets are additional standard features. Drivers also have the option of adding the new City Package, which features power-folding side mirrors, rear parking sensors, a proximity key and an alarm system.

How Does the 2014 Mini Paceman Compare to Other Compacts?

The Mini Paceman offers all-wheel drive, which is a convenient feature not often available in the class. However, it is not the only model from Mini that offers AWD; if you are looking for something more spacious, it may be better to opt for the Mini Countryman small SUV.

What Features on the 2014 Mini Paceman Are Most Important?

The 2014 Paceman is equipped with a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine rated at 121 horsepower. For a little more zip, drivers have the option of a 181-hp, turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder. This vehicle comes with a manual transmission, but a six-speed automatic is optional.

Standard features include 17-inch alloy wheels, a rear spoiler, front sport seats, a folding backseat and a tilt/telescoping steering wheel. Available amenities include front foglights, a panoramic moonroof, front seat heaters, automatic air conditioning, a navigation system and a Harman Kardon stereo.

Standard safety features include side-impact airbags for the front seats, all-disc antilock brakes, side curtain airbags and an electronic stability system.

Should I Buy the 2014 Mini Paceman?

This vehicle's stylish good looks, cargo space and roomy interior make it a compelling choice, but some drivers may be deterred by its firm ride and difficult-to-access backseat.

Another reliable car purchased from this dealer.

I think it is a great vehicle! I believe it will serve us well in the years to come. I will be driving 30 miles one way each day and needed a trust worthy vehicle. This is our second Mini and they have been just what we need!


Hope it will be the most reliable car I've owned!

Love the styling of my Mini Cooper paceman 2014 both inside and out. Mine had white rims and look great but lots of cleaning... Maybe different brakes would help. Some of the Bluetooth phone functions are clunky it should automatically connect/disconnect when entering and exiting with Android auto or car play! Also voice functions are clunky like most cars, just seems like they put super cheap mics in all cars no matter what brand or quality! Parts seem to be more expensive than most cars because it is a BMW import and also hard to find mechanics to work on them. The dealer couldn't accommodate me for a simple oil change!


A well-balanced, fun to drive package!

I purchased this car for business use, with long drives throughout eastern/central PA. Very comfortable on the interstates, plus a joy to drive on the beautiful country roads in central PA. Plenty of power and superb handling. Sure-footed in all weather. A great sound system to help pass the time. Surprisingly roomy interior to fit my 6'6' frame.
