If you thought that with hatchback, convertible, wagon (Clubman), crossover (Countryman), Speedster and coupe models, BMW’s MINI brand was shoehorning a lot of product into a relatively small market segment, get ready for yet another MINI, the Paceman, introduced as a “concept” to the media at the ’11 NAIAS. Essentially a two door Countryman with the roof chopped in a manner that evokes the Land Rover Evoque, MINI describes the Paceman as the “first Sports Activity Coupe in the small premium segment”. I suppose that makes it an X6 for the MINI set. The Paceman is a concept in name only since BMW has indicated that it will indeed go into production, though not before the previously announced Coupe and Speedster hit the market.

The Paceman inherits the Countryman’s full-time ALL4 AWD system, powered by a John Cooper Works branded 1.6L turbo engine capable of 211 HP and 192 pound-feet of torque, working through available automatic or 6 speed row-your-own transmission.
