The Paceman will launch in the USA with two four-cylinder petrol engines in Cooper and Cooper S models. Both models will feature a six-speed manual gearbox as standard, with a six-speed auto on the options list.
Cooper S variants will be available with four-wheel drive.
Recent success in America means that the US is Mini’s single most important market. It says much of its growth is attributable to the Countryman, which has attracted many newcomers to the brand. The Countryman-based Paceman is predicted to continue that trend.
