For The Mini Paceman gives you a slightly elevated driving position, yet it resists body roll well and is far from uncomfortable. Residuals should be strong and you get a decent amount of equipment.

Against It’s neither as good to drive, nor as classy, as the best coupe and hatchback rivals. Also, it costs more than an equivalent Countryman despite its lower door count.

The Mini Paceman gives you some of the practicality of the Countryman while retaining some of the style of the hatch, but the Audi A3 and VW Scirocco cost similar money and are much better cars.

Buyer's notes

Target Price team says:

The Mini Paceman is a three-door version of the Countryman that’s been extensively restyled to give it a sportier look.

Four engines are available: 121bhp Cooper and 181bhp Cooper S petrols, and 110bhp Cooper D and 141bhp Cooper SD diesels.

The amount of kit you get will depend on your engine choice, but all versions come with air-conditioning, rear parking sensors, Bluetooth and a DAB radio with a USB input. That’s not bad considering that Mini is often quite stingy with equipment.

Being a Mini, there are also has a dizzying range of options and accessories to choose from. We’d recommend that you take Mini up on their offer of the TLC servicing package. For a nominal, one-off fee, this takes care of all the costs from your first few services.
