2016 MINI Paceman review: Our expert's take

Vehicle Overview

The four-seat two-door Mini Paceman crossover SUV shares its underpinnings and wheelbase with the four-door Countryman. Like the Countryman, it’s available with front- or all-wheel drive.

All Pacemans have a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine, and the ones in the Cooper S and John Cooper Works performance model are turbocharged.
