Essentially a Countryman coupe, the Paceman is designed to appeal to young, modern, extrovert urbanites.

With the North American International Auto Show just around the corner, MINI has released the first details about the Paceman concept.

Essentially a Countryman coupe, the Paceman is designed to appeal to "young, modern, extrovert urbanites" that enjoy standing out from the crowd. As such, the crossover features a bold front fascia, a sloping roofline, and 19-inch alloy wheels.

Inside, the four-seat cabin has leather upholstery, a full-length center rail system, and unique door panel trim.

Under the hood, a turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine produces 155 kW (211 PS / 208 hp) and 260 Nm (192 lb-ft) of torque. It sends power to the ground through a permanent all-wheel drive system.

While the Paceman is technically a concept, the company hinted it "could become another building block in the ongoing development of the brand and its product portfolio."
