Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP), also known as "sticker" price, is a recommended selling price that automakers give a new car that is above the invoice price paid by the dealer. It is a price that does not include any options that can be added to a particular car style. When shown as a range, the prices are starting MSRPs, without options, for multiple styles for that model.
This price range reflects the Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value for all trim levels, but not necessarily all available options.
The Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value represents the amount an auto dealer might ask for a specific vehicle; the actual sale price will vary. A vehicle's popularity, condition, warranty, color and local market conditions are factors involved in determining a final price. The retail value is not a trade-in or private party value.
The Suggested Retail value assumes that the vehicle has been fully reconditioned and has a clean title history. The Suggested Retail value also allows for advertising, sales commissions, insurance and other costs of doing business as a dealer. Most vehicles offered at this price have passed an inspection, and some may carry a warranty. Vehicle mileage is assumed to be normal or below normal.

The four-seat Mini Paceman represents the seventh body style in Mini's quickly multiplying lineup. It shares its underpinnings and wheelbase with the four-door Countryman; like the Countryman it also has available all-wheel drive.
The Paceman comes in Cooper Paceman or Cooper S Paceman variants, signaling a normally aspirated or turbocharged four-cylinder. Manual or automatic transmissions come with either car, but the Cooper S Paceman is the only one with optional all-wheel drive.
(Skip to details on the: John Cooper Works Paceman) New for 2014 Heated mirrors and washer jets are now standard. The unusual Center Rail sliding-console system has been replaced by standard dual cupholders for the backseat with a 12-volt power outlet and iPod holder. The Comfort suspension is now standard with the Sport suspension as a no-charge option.
A newly available City Package includes an alarm system, power-folding side mirrors, heated mirrors and washer jets, auto-dimming rearview and side mirrors, rear parking sensors and a proximity key.
