With the new Paceman, Mini expanded its range offering a more spacious coupe to attract even more buyers.
The Paceman was rather the two-door version of the Mini Countryman and was designed for the users who found the regular Mini Cooper or the Clubman to be too small.
The Paceman was sportier than the Countryman, featuring a lower ground clearance, different rear quarter panel, a lowered roofline and other subtle styling difference to make it look tougher.
The Paceman was available in three trim levels: the base, the S and the John Cooper Works.
The base model featured 17-inch alloys, air-conditioning, front sport seats, vinyl upholstery, cruise control, Bluetooth connectivity and a 6-speaker audio system.
The Paceman S added more sportiness to the model, with a more performant turbocharged engine, sports seats, a dynamic traction mode for the stability control system and fog lights.
The most agile within the 3 trim levels was the John Cooper Works, model that added 18-inch alloy wheels, an even more powerful engine, a tweaked suspension and specific interior styling details.
The extensive list of stand-alone options included adaptive xenon headlights, a tweaked suspension even for the lower trim levels, rear parking sensors, a panoramic sunroof, rain-sensing wipers, heated front seats, leather upholstery, an upgraded 10-speaker Harman Kardon audio system and special interior color schemes.
