2013 MINI Cooper Paceman Road Test & Review: Final Thoughts
I fully acknowledge the Paceman is an interesting concept, and likely to sell quite well.
Still, I wonder what the Paceman would’ve been like if they’d based it on the standard Cooper Hardtop rather than the Countryman.
In other words, I believe there’s a market for a Paceman-sized version of the Cooper Hardtop. That way, they’d have a larger four-seat car with the look everyone likes and truly sporty handling and the sharper road manners of the Cooper Hardtop.
But frankly, I never really “got” the Countryman.
I mean it’s, like, a Crossover MINI.
I have yet to see anybody take one off road.
