Car Tech Video: Mini adds another to the family with the Mini Cooper Paceman

1:44 /

At the 2012 Paris Auto Show, Mini unleashes another car to its already growing family, the Mini Cooper Paceman. It's big like the Mini Countryman but with two doors, two engine choices, and the same interior you've seen in other models.

-What's up guys! This is Antuan Goodwin with cnet.com on the floor of the 2012 Paris motor show. We're taking a look at the Mini Cooper Paceman. Now, the Paceman is a 2-door version of the Mini Countryman. That's Mini's sort of big/small crossover thing. Basically, this has 2 fewer doors and it kind of adapts that sort of sloping backwards ball cut from the Mini Cooper. Now, this car is gonna be available in the US market with at the very least one of the gasoline power trains. One that's gonna be a 1.6 liter 121 horsepower gasoline engine. The other is gonna be a turbocharged 1.6 liter engine that output 181 horsepower. Now, both of those vehicles are gonna be available with mini's all 4 all wheel drive system. It's gonna be the second model in minis lineup that's gonna be available with that and despite the fact that it looks like a shorter version of the Mini Countryman, it's about the same length, same wheel base, still seats 4. Along with that 1.6 liter and 1.6 liter turbo, we can expect at some point in the future, a John Cooper Works version that's even hotter than this. In the cabin, you've got pretty much your standard fare Mini interior. It's got that big dinner plate pedometer right in the center of the dashboard, but on the right side, it does come Mini's navigation and entertainment system that has that Mini connect app integration with your iPhone. I've been Antuan Goodwin on the floor at the 2012 Paris Motor Show. We've been taking a look at the new Mini Cooper Paceman.
