Review Summary
Whether you like the term or not, MINI is famous for its go-kart handling with direct steering that responds immediately you turn the wheel. The Paceman is no different and through the twisty stuff the MINI Paceman is a lot of fun.

Review Summary
The MINI Paceman mixes MINI Countryman practicality with a bit of MINI Coupe style to good effect.

Review Summary
Within the Mini Paceman range, the Cooper SD ALL4 exists in that sweet spot where acceptable economy and emissions meet strong performance.

Review Summary
The MINI Paceman is an intriguing proposition. It offers decent rear space and powerful engines, but without the practicality of five doors or the driving appeal of the hatch.

Review Summary
Assuming you insist on having a MINI of some sort, you can get more space with the Countryman and a better driving experience with the hatchback. The Paceman is a compromise between the two, and in our view not an ideal one.

Review Summary
The light steering doesn’t offer much feedback, but body roll is well controlled.

Review Summary
At a stretch, we can see a point to the 4WD versions, but really though, this is an unnecessary diversion. And not a very pretty one, either.

Review Summary
Well made, but the Paceman can't quite decide if it wants to be a practical SUV or a sporty coupé. The result is that it does neither very well.
