Mimics Countryman facelift unveiled in NYC.
Having unveiled the refreshed Countryman in New York, Mini has whisked the wraps off that model's coupe counterpart in Beijing. Unsurprisingly, the refreshed Paceman adopts all the changes Mini made to the Countryman. That is: a new hexagonal grille, LED DRLs and fog lights, a new set of 16- and 17-inch alloys, a few new paint colors (including Piano Black Exterior seen here), a choice of stick-on stripes for the hood and roof, and optional high-gloss black trim.
Modest interior upgrades include revised instrumentation and chromed-out switchgear, as well as the latest version of the Mini Connected infotainment system. All powertrain configurations continue unchanged save the Cooper S that is boosted by 7 hp to 190 hp. There's no room for the budget-oriented One model either, making the 122-hp Cooper the base model, with the John Cooper Works sitting at the top of the range with 218 hp.
