Automobile Gets Its First Drive In The MINI Cooper S Paceman

Automobile Magazine's David Zenlea writes about the MINI Cooper S Paceman after his first drive in the vehicle and provides a large photo gallery. Zenlea's ultimate impression:
We're not sure how many more times Mini will be able to apply the same character cues to a new niche. We also wonder if there's a saturation point in the market for coupe-like crossovers. But that day of reckoning has not yet arrived. With a base price that will be higher than that of the Countryman but still thousands less than an Evoque, the Paceman brings crossover coupe styling to a new audience. More important, the Paceman is charming, eccentric, and fun to drive, exactly like a modern Mini should be.
