MINI Paceman Concept
Last year MINI previewed a two-door version of the Countryman with the Paceman concept. Now MINI’s Kay Segler has confirmed that the two-door version of the Countryman will arrive early next year and will keep the Paceman name. Segler recently told a crowd of MINI fans “We will continue to expand the MINI family,” he said. “The MINI Paceman is the world’s first sports activity coupe in the premium compact segment.”


Segler also stated that the production version of the Paceman will be unveiled sometime this year, which means that we will probably see it at the 2012 Paris Motor Show in September.
Expect the Paceman to be powered by the same engine lineup as the rest of the MINI lineup when it arrives in the U.S. next year.
