The Mini Paceman is a subcompact, four-passenger SUV based on the crossover Mini Countryman, built and sold by Mini. Launched as the Paceman concept in 2011 at the North American International Auto Show, production began later that year with a making model introduced in 2012.
In 2016, BMW affirmed that the creation of the Paceman would terminate by the end of 2016.
The Mini Cooper Paceman comes available in base, Cooper S and John Cooper Works (JCW) trim levels. The ALL4 all-wheel-drive system is optional on Cooper S and by default on JCW.
