2015 MINI Paceman review: Our expert's take

Vehicle Overview

The four-seat two-door Mini Paceman shares its underpinnings and wheelbase with the four-door Countryman; like the Countryman, it also has available all-wheel drive.

It comes in Cooper Paceman or Cooper S Paceman variants, signaling a normally aspirated or turbocharged four-cylinder engine. Manual or automatic transmissions come with either car, but the Cooper S Paceman is the only one with available all-wheel drive.

Cute Smart . Easy handling hugs the road.

Plenty of head and legroom. Seats fold down in back doe larger cargo needs. Miss the back up beep options and rear cameras in other makes but the car is small you can see everything.
