These are the first images with the upcoming MINI Paceman without wearing any sort of camouflage. The images were taken by Motoringfile from the MINI Space, which is the online version of MINI’s print magazine. This is the two-door version of the Countryman and it is expected to make its public debut at the end of the month in Paris, before going on sale next year.
It has the same wheelbase and platform as the five-door model but comes with a lower stance as it is 0.4 inches closer to the road, while its roof is sitting 1.7 inches lower compared to the Countryman. In addition, the new model is 44 pounds (20 kg) lighter and comes as standard with the ALL4 all-wheel drive system. It will be offered with all the versions available for the Countryman, so expect a Paceman Cooper, Cooper D, Cooper S and Cooper SD.
No official details regarding the price tag of the 2013 MINI Paceman but most likely in Germany it will be 1,500 Euros more expensive than its five-door sibling.
