2013 MINI Cooper Paceman S ALL4 Review by The Auto Channel
It's called Heels on Wheels and they are testing cars from a woman's perspective, mostly done by Katrina Ramser, their San Francisco editor. This month she tested the new MINI Cooper S Paceman ALL4 and told us all about it.
As you probably already know, the Cooper S version had the 1.6-liter turbocharged engine's power output raised to 184 HP and 250 Nm (184 lb-ft) of torque. Since the badges on the car say ALL4, you'll figure out that it's also equipped with MINI's own all-wheel-drive system.
Being a test drive for women, style is a clear criteria to keep in mind and the Paceman has plenty of it. Due to its wide array of optional features you can get, the MINI can be done however you'd like, catering to your every need.
As far as safety goes, the Paceman is the only model in the British company's line-up that was regarded as a Top Safety Pick by the IIHS in 2013. Other aspects might turn you into a Paceman fan too but we'll let you discover them in Katrina's full article.
