You might be reaching out to your pocket, ready to buy the Mini Paceman. Don’t, Mini has just decided to call it wraps on the odd Mini Paceman and it all makes sense, it just doesn’t belong there. The Paceman is a 3-door crossover SUV that was based on the Countryman crossover unveiled back in 2012 and offers a 1.6-liter petrol or 2.0-liter diesel engine.
It’s not the first Mini to die, previously; Mini pulled the Roadster and the Coupe versions from the market. The news came in when “Steyr” – The company that builds the Mini cars announced it was about to start sharing the build of the next-gen 2017 BMW 5-seires. Yes, the Mini isn’t built in either BMW or Mini plants, so there is no more room for the oddity and it makes sense to drop the Mini Paceman.
This move cements Mini’s approach on eliminating body types that aren’t selling much or even attracting buyer interest. The 5-door Clubman seems to be doing well and is safe for now.
