You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

Rear bucket seating is the only configuration available, making it strictly a four-passenger vehicle. Perhaps that won't matter since the Paceman is clearly aimed at active singles and couples, not folks with kids to ferry. It does better when it comes to carrying cargo with 24 cubic-feet of space or 38 with the rear seats folded. That isn't anyone's idea of a hauler, but it's vastly better than the Cooper or anything with a conventional trunk.

Powertrains are shared with other MINIs, starting with a 1.6-liter four-cylinder with 121 horsepower, matched to a manual or optional automatic transmission, both with six speeds. As expected with an engine this size, fuel economy is strong at up to 35 mpg on the highway, but acceleration ranks as below average.

Performance picks up with S model, which uses a turbocharged version of the 1.6-liter. With 181 horsepower on tap, the S offers brisk pickup with just a small drop in fuel economy. The turbo is the natural choice for all-around performance and drivability in the Paceman. All S models can be ordered with MINI's all-wheel drive system, known as ALL4.

Buyers looking for all-wheel drive and maximum go-power will find it in the John Cooper Works model. The JCW employs an upgraded version of the S's turbo with 208 horsepower and an overboost function that yields more torque during full-throttle acceleration. You also get a sport-tuned suspension and exhaust system, plus sportier interior trim.

Though it doesn't offer the sheer utility of other small crossovers and hatchbacks, the Paceman carries on the MINI tradition of precise handling, efficient sportiness, and unmatchable character.
