MINI Countryman Coupe Looks Production Ready in Spy Photos

MINI Countryman Coupe Looks Production Ready in Spy Photos

The MINI Paceman concept was revealed to us at the 2011 Detroit Auto Show, and will hit dealer showrooms in early 2013 badged as the Countryman Coupe. 

Our latest batch of spy photos show the Countryman Coupe out testing in what is sure to be very close to production form. The Coupe will run with the same engine options as the standard countryman, utilizing a 121 hp 4-cylinder or a turbo 4-cylinder that makes 181-hp. The Countryman Coupe may also be offered with the 1.6-liter inline four cylinder sourced from the John Cooper Works Countryman, that makes a total 211-hp.

The Coupe appears to have a slightly lower suspension than the standard Countryman, and will likely offer a sportier feel than the standard car, as two door coupe variants usually do. The ‘S’ badge is displayed on the side of the test car, tipping off that the car will probably be offered with a sport package, and a JCW variant.

The back end styling of the Countryman Coupe differentiates the car the most, taking cues from the Range Rover Evoque and BMW X6 with the rear sloping roof line.
