PostSubject: MINI Paceman Re-named as the Countryman Coupe   14th March 2012, 15:52

We’ve known for awhile that MINI was looking to re-name the Paceman but until now we’ve not hear anything specific about the name. We theorized that MINI could go with something as simple as the Countryman Coupe but had no definitive source to back it up. However the folks at Car and Driver do as they recently heard from a source at MINI that the Paceman will indeed be renamed the Countryman Coupe. It makes perfect logical German sense to us. But we want to hear your thoughts? Should MINI have been more adventurous with the name or does the Countryman Coupe sound right to you?

Looking forward to the countryman roadster

Just like I can't see room for the Convertible & The Roadster, if this is a 3 door version of the 5 door MINI, what does that make the hatch?

The MINI Paceman concept from last year is to be launched officially later this year to go on sale in 2013, possibly to be known as the 'MINI Countryman Coupe' but some sources are also suggesting the return of the Mini-Metro name to the Mini range is under serious consideration.......

"It’s a name that translates well across European, American and Asian markets, and perfectly reflects the young go-getting urban feel that the car is trying to achieve. So, could the UK price lists witness the return of the MINI-Metro name in 2013?"
News : MINI-Metro name set to return?
More details on AROnline:

http://www.aronline.co.uk/blogs/2012/03/16/news-mini-metro-name-set-to-return/

"The MINI brand was also able to achieve a new sales volume high in 2011. In total, 285,060 units of the MINI (2010: 234,175 units) were sold, 21.7% more than in the previous year. The MINI Countryman performed particularly well, with sales up more than six fold to 89,036 units (2010: 14,337 units). The MINI Coupé was launched in September 2011 as the fifth model in the MINI family and recorded a sales volume of 3,799 units up to the year end."

It's got that squashed back-end link the new Land Rover?
