The soon to be launched Mini Paceman isn’t much of a secret since the British carmaker not only previewed the car with a prototype at the 2011 Detroit Motor Show but back in July this year, it also released a handful of photos of a barely disguised pre-production model.
The Paceman is a bit more than just a three-door version of MINI's five-door Countryman crossover, as the designers have altered the body from the A-pillars and back. It sports a much sleeker roofline with a raked rear tailgate, while it's also around 13mm lower and 20mm longer than the car it is based on.
MINI will reveal the new Paceman to the public at this month's Paris Motor Show with sales expected to start next year.
