Thanks to its chic design and low company tax rates, The MINI Paceman, set to launch early next year, has caught the eye of Business Car Manager and is set to cause a stir with other company car owners.

Four MINI Paceman models to choose from - two petrol, two turbodiesels

The new MINI Paceman, is expected to turn heads when it finally launches early next year, especially company car owners.

Based on the MINI Countryman – that's the larger four-door MINI with four-wheel drive ability – the Paceman is a coupe version of the Countryman, but still with space for four adults.

With a steeply sloping rear roof, the new three-door MINI Paceman looks like a shrunken Range Rover Evoque.

And with prices starting at £18,970, the cost is shrunken too in comparison with the Evoque.

There will be four models available when the MINI Paceman goes on sale in March 2013.

    MINI Cooper Paceman: petrol 1.6-litre 122bhp, 0-62mph time of 10.4 seconds, economy 47.1mpg, CO2 emissions 140 g/km, company car tax band 20%
    MINI Cooper Paceman S: petrol 1.6-litre 184bhp, 0-62mph time of 7.5 seconds, economy 46.3mpg, CO2 emissions 143 g/km, company car tax band 20%
    MINI Cooper D Paceman: diesel turbo 1.6-litre 112bhp, 0-62mph time of 10.8 seconds, economy 64.2mpg, CO2 emissions 115g/km, company car tax band 18%
    MINI Cooper SD Paceman: diesel turbo 2.0-litre 143bhp, 0-62mph time of 9.2 seconds, economy 61.4mpg, CO2 emissions 122g/km, company car tax band 19%

MINI says the Paceman has been created to appeal to a new type of design-conscious customer – that will be most small

But with company car tax rates as low as 18%, we reckon business drivers will be wanting one of these as their next company car!

Optional all-wheel drive transmission will be available on the Paceman, and lowered sports suspension is standard – a more regular suspension and ride height are available as a no-cost option, says MINI.

All four launch MINI Paceman models will have a six-speed manual gearbox; a six-speed automatic with Steptronic function for manual control is an option.

A John Cooper Works Paceman model is also under development.
