Updates are minimal, with MINI’s primary focus to improve efficiency and reduce CO2 emissions. Exterior changes amount to a black surround on the headlights and rear lamp cluster, but buyers can opt for a chrome finish as a no-cost option. Two new exterior colours and light alloy wheels are also now available. Inside, the only changes are new anthracite-coloured dials.
Under the skin, all petrol and diesel Paceman models now meet EU VI exhaust emission standards. The Paceman S is now more powerful, developing 190bhp up from 184bhp in the outgoing model. Despite the power increase, CO2 emissions are also down from 143g/km to 139g/km. Emissions across the range have been cut to 137, 111 and 119g/km for the Cooper, Cooper D and SD respectively.
To help boost efficiency further, MINI has tweaked the underside of the car to optimise the air flow, in addition to adding low-rolling resistance tyres across the range.
Standard kit also includes air-conditioning, MP3 compatibility, DAB radio, Bluetooth and rear parking sensors as standard.
