The Mini Paceman is a compact, 3-door crossover SUV based on the Countryman crossover. The car was introduced as a concept car first at the 2011 North American International Auto Show. Production of the concept was confirmed later in 2011,[1] with the production model unveiled in late 2012.[2] Like the Countryman, the Paceman is offered with a choice of two- or four-wheel drive (known as ALL4), and with 1.6 L petrol or diesel and 2.0 L diesel Inline-four engines in various states of tune.[2]

Models[edit]

The model derivatives follow a similar pattern to the Mini Hatch, with a choice of Cooper/Cooper D, Cooper S/Cooper SD and John Cooper Works derivatives. The Cooper petrol 122 PS (90 kW; 120 bhp) and the Cooper D 112 PS (82 kW; 110 bhp), the Cooper S petrol 184 PS (135 kW; 181 bhp), the John Cooper Works 221 PS (163 kW; 218 bhp) and the Cooper SD diesel producing 143 PS (105 kW; 141 bhp). The availability of models varies between markets. The All4 all-wheel-drive option is available on variable models, again depending on the country. The Cooper SD offers a great combination of efficiency and performance with a return of 57.6mpg and a capability of 0-62mph in 9.3 seconds.[3]

Production[edit]

Unlike most of the Mini range, the Paceman is manufactured not in England, but in Graz, Austria by Magna Steyr alongside the Countryman.[1]
