Here are a few spy shots revealing the definitive look of the upcoming Mini Countryman Coupe, arguably one of the most ‘eccentric’ projects of the Anglo-German carmaker. The model is the final evolution of what we had seen with the Paceman prototype, meaning a compact crossover with a more ’sporty’ attitude than the standard Countryman model it is basically based upon. For this model the Mini designers decided to get rid of the rear doors, a choice that implied a change of the whole rear section of the car as well.
This new Countryman Coupe will position itself in the same niche of the market ruled by the Range Rover Evoque, although the different size and price-tag of these two models will have them competing in two different segments of the market. The model is scheduled to make its debut at the 2012 Paris Motor Show in September. Just as a reminder, the Mini Paceman measured 4.11 meters in length, 1.79 in width and 1.54 in height.
