MINI has launched the production version of its Paceman at the Paris Motor Show, making it the BMW-owned brand’s eighth model line.
The new three-door SUV-coupe crossover is based on the MINI Countryman, but the Paceman’s three doors and sleek coupe profile set a much more sporty tone.
Notable on the exterior are the tail-lights, which are horizontally mounted – a first for MINI. The bold Paceman lettering across the centre of the bootlid is also a new departure for the brand.
The seating layout is 2+2 only, while the electric window controls move from the centre console to the armrests.
There’s a choice of two petrol engines and the two turbodiesels – all are available in either two or four-wheel drive. The Mini Cooper Paceman will hit UK dealers next spring, priced from £18,940.
