MINI not only released photos and the press release this week for the new Paceman but the specifications as well. They paint a picture of a car that is about 20 lbs lighter than the Countryman and essentially the same length. Like the Countryman the Paceman could either be considered a relatively heavy MINI (saddled with the same power outputs) or a very light crossover.
The numbers show a car that shouldn’t be all that different from the Countryman in performance and feel. Yet we’re hearing that’s exactly what they are. We’ll know more once we drive the car this fall. But until then check out the numbers after the break.
