sgCarMart – The very mention of the Paceman is bound to rub certain people the wrong way. Die-hard MINI fans out there will probably pop a blood vessel when they look at a Paceman for the first time, and critics may dismiss MINI's latest product as yet another attempt to generate revenue from style-conscious motorists.
Unveiled at the 2011 Detroit Motor Show as a concept, MINI claims that the Paceman will appeal to 'young, modern, extrovert urbanites' who want to stand out from the crowd.
The Paceman is essentially a three-door version of the Countryman with a unique sheet metal after the A-pillars, although MINI describes it as a unique blend of an SUV, a coupe and a hatchback, thus its sports activity coupe moniker in the premium small and compact segment.
The idea behind the Paceman - the seventh model in MINI's ever-expanding lineup - is to create a new segment by combining the performance of a MINI hatch and the practicality of a Countryman. But it's apparent that the Paceman also brings something else to the table - a style of its own.
