The MINI Paceman's engine is specifically designed to provide engaging performances and driving dynamics.

Not everybody needs four doors, and while MINI offers many options to satisfy those who prefer four doors, the Paceman is definitely a great option for those who don’t. Its athletic shape, low profile and fantastic features make it an all-around superb vehicle. It is offered in a choice of two variants: The Cooper S ALL4, which has a starting price of $33,795, and the more powerful John Cooper Works ALL4, which is offered from $42,195.

While driving on the highway, fuel consumption drops down to 7.6 l/100 km on the manual transmission and 7.7 l /100 km on the automatic transmission.
