SAFETY.

 

THE CLEVER DRIVING APPROACH.

 
 

Your new MINI Paceman, your bodyguard: various sensors recognise dangers before they actually arise, allowing you to react in good time. In tricky situations, you are supported by the intelligent suspension and braking systems.
Maximum security on four wheels: in the event of a crash, a wealth of safety equipment provides you with optimum, all-round protection.

 
 
 

ASC+T.

 

Automatic Stability Control + Traction (ASC+T), prevent the front wheels from spinning, guaranteeing ideal starting conditions and plenty of traction.

 
 

ACTIVE SAFETY.

 

PREVENTION.

 

Thinking on its feet. The new MINI Cooper SD Paceman has the latest safety technology built-in so it can react to the driving conditions, come what may.

 
 

BRAKING SYSTEM.

 

Latest generation 4-sensor ABS brakes with Cornering Braking Control and Electronic Brakeforce Distribution provide control and stability while cornering, braking at high speeds and when you're loaded up. The new MINI Paceman's brakes are perfectly adapted to suit the power of the model, and its braking system is designed to cope with repeated intense use, without noise or juddering.

 
 

DSC.

 

Using multiple sensors, Dynamic Stability Control recognises critical driving situations and reacts early to prevent skidding, oversteering and understeering. If required, it automatically applies braking force to individual wheels at the front or rear for maximum stability.

 
 
 

DTC.

 

Activate the Dynamic Traction Control with one touch to safety tackle snow-covered tracks or loose sand with great stability. Electronic Differential Lock Control recognises when the wheel slip is too high on the inside wheel when cornering, and applies braking force for optimum handling.

 
 
 

DYNAMIC BRAKE LIGHT.

 

Dynamic brake lights fitted to new MINI Paceman models generate a conspicuous warning signal for traffic behind, when sudden, powerful braking is required - in the tail end of a motorway traffic jam, for example. Automatically activated hazard warning lights then help diffuse the critical situation.

 
 
 
 

PASSIVE SAFETY.

 

PROTECTION.

 

The latest safety equipment and new design features prepare all new MINI Paceman models to combat any challenges that come their way.

 
 

BRILLIANT LIGHTS.

 

Optimum light on straights and bends alike – thanks to the optional bi-xenon headlights, which adapt to the direction of the road.

 
 

STRONG TYRES.

 

Changing flat tyres in dangerous situations becomes a thing of the past with the built-in Tyre Pressure Indicator. But, if you get one, optional Runflat Tyres on 17" and 18" wheels can keep you driving with a flat tyre for up to 80km at speeds of 80km/h. Keeping you in control even with a sudden loss of tyre pressure.

 
 

FAST AIRBAGS.

 

In addition to driver, front passenger and side airbags, curtain airbags come as standard. These pillow-like airbags cover the top half of the side windows in the front, guaranteeing impact protection and safeguarding against injuries from flying glass.

 
 

RIGID BODY.

 

Front, back and sides, the rigid body protects the precious cargo within. High-strength, hot-formed steel adds extra safety against side-on collisions, a hybrid steel-plastic front panel adds strength around the engine and wheel arches, and structural measures in the front roof section ensure maximum safety for occupants in the case of rollover.
 
In case of a frontal collision a steering column with integrated crash deformation element allows the steering wheel to move forwards towards the instrument panel up to a maximum of 80mm.
This safety feature in combination with the seat belt and frontal airbag reduces the risk of injury to the driver’s chest.

 
 
 

AGILE CHASSIS.

 

Relax into the road. With the multilink rear axle, each wheel reacts independently, meaning than an uneven road surface doesn’t disrupt the whole chassis, and you enjoy superior handling, safety, and a smoother ride.
