The MINI Cooper S Paceman is getting the same engine, but in a turbocharged version, which is developing 135 kW and 240 Nm of torque. This is enough to allow the model to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 7.5 seconds for the manual an in 7.8 seconds for the automatic version. Average fuel consumption in the Cooper stands at 6.5 L / 100 km and at 6.6 L / 100 km in the Cooper S.
