A great spot by the MINI-oriented Motoring File website means that we’ve been ‘treated’ to a pre-Paris reveal of its the marque’s next model. The story, which was published here, shows the MINI Paceman in its natural environment, south east London.
The new car, which is a more lifestyle-focused version of the Maxi, sorry, Countryman, comes with two doors, a sloping roof and dramatically raked side-windows. It’s closest rival is likely to be the Range Rover Evoque, although the Paceman is expected to be cheaper. Like the Countryman, the Paceman will not be built in the UK, but in Graz, Austria.
