Back in March, we reported that the MINI Paceman concept shown at the Detroit Auto Show would be wearing the Countryman Coupe nameplate. Well, cross that off as MINI's senior vice president, Dr. Kay Segler said this week the Paceman will be the new name.

"The Mini Paceman is the world’s first sports activity coupe in the premium compact segment. It combines a clear appetite for extravagance and infectious driving fun in a style that only Mini could pull off with such authenticity.”

The new Paceman will be shown at the Paris Motor Show later this year, with sales beginning in 2013.

But who cares if they cannot get them built with Quality. Being at the bottom of the Quality pile based on the JD Powers Report, 157 defects per 100 cars built. That means at least 2 defects per car on 50% of them built. That is terrible.

Now they are going to build this and it implies to me that the defect level will go up. I have little faith they can build a car to last. No wonder I see so many 1 or 2 year old mini's on dealership lots.

My wife loves the size and style, but I would not risk her life in one ever with their lack of quality. Plus as I told her, it is not American made. English made but not American.
