So the above Mini Paceman has been approved for preoduction, and why not? It is a coupe version of the successful Countryman. It may not be called the Paceman when it arrives, but whatever it is called, it is a natural progression. Also in the future, the good folks at Autocar have rendered their thoughts (with insider guidance) about the next version Cooper, and it’s spinoff Clubman ( below). Very nice. Who says the future looks big???
