The MINI Paceman is a unique vehicle, there’s no denying that fact. Even those in the MINI camp aren’t completely sure how they feel about the vehicle - it’s not a hatchback, its not really an SUV - it sort of exists in a category all of its own.
Of course, one of the advantages to the vehicle’s original design is that it has few competitors. However that may all change following the release of the new Kia Niro, a two-door SUV coupe set to makes its debut at this years Frankfurt Motor Show. Early photos show the Niro to be a stout, rugged, athletic looking vehicle with Lamborghini doors. It’s lifted stance and large wheels add to the vehicle’s sporty appeal.
While similarities between the Paceman and this concept Niro are undeniable, we prefer the the smooth lines and German engineering found in the MINI. We imagine that the Niro will go to market at a price well below the Paceman’s MSRP, making it a worth adversary in the SUV-coupe space.
