KBB Expert Review

Vehicle Details Interior  Dashboard, center console, gear shifter view photo

The Countryman and Paceman interiors are as charming as those in other Minis. There's the big round speedometer in the center, plus a bunch of small switches and buttons, a round tachometer, round air conditioning vents, round door pulls, more round things here and there – it's certainly distinctively Mini. Other Minis have the power-window switches low in the center console, but in the Countryman and Paceman, for better or worse, they're on the doors. For 2014 the Countryman has a bench as the only rear-seat choice and the former rail has been replaced by a couple of cup holders with a 12-volt outlet.

Exterior   photo

If the goal was to design bigger Minis they would look just like the Countryman and Paceman: Take the well-known Mini styling cues, morph and squeeze them around a bit, add another pair of doors for the Countryman, make the Paceman roofline low and sporty, throw in a lot of curves and swoops, and there you are. Different, but still Mini. As with other Minis, there is a wealth of accessories that allows any owner to make any Mini as individual as he or she cares, from wheel choices to stripes and including the in-your-face John Cooper Works versions.

Notable Standard Equipment

There are three trim levels for the 2014 Mini Countryman and Paceman: Cooper, Cooper S and John Cooper Works. The primary differences are engine power outputs (121, 181 and 208 horsepower, respectively), and accompanying wheel and tire fitments and trim items. Standard equipment includes a 6-speed manual transmission, Leatherette seats, AM/FM/CD/HD 6-speaker radio with auxiliary input, climate-controlled glove box, remote entry and a lengthy assortment of the expected convenience items and government-mandated safety features. All Minis include no-cost maintenance for three years/36,000 miles and 4-year/unlimited-mileage roadside assistance.

Notable Optional Equipment

As is Mini practice, the Countryman and Paceman can be ordered in a million configurations. Many of the combinations are wrapped into the trim levels. In addition, the Mini Connected package, with or without navigation, includes an infotainment system with color screen. Other options include a panoramic sunroof, heated front seats, a harman/kardon sound system, parking sensors, leather and the John Cooper Works interior and exterior packages. Much of the individualizing can be done online, and contemplating your new Mini on the website ( is an entertaining experience in its own right.

Under the Hood

Powering the 2014 Mini Countryman and Paceman are the same engine choices as used in the smaller models. The base engine is a 1.6-liter inline 4-cylinder of 121 horsepower, which is adequate, but just so. The turbocharged Cooper S version makes 181 horsepower and defines sprightly, and the John Cooper Works model cranks out 208 horsepower and delivers performance that is more than merely sparkling. The base models are front-drive only, the Cooper S versions can be front-drive or all-wheel drive and the John Cooper Works models are AWD only. A 6-speed manual gearbox is standard equipment, and a 6-speed automatic is available. Minis require 91-octane fuel.

Pricing Notes

With a Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) starting a little over $22,000, the 2014 Mini Countryman is attractively priced, but trim upgrades and options quickly create increases. The Cooper S Countryman is around $26,000, while the John Cooper Works edition is near $35,000. The 2014 Paceman starts over $23,000, with the John Cooper Works version over $35,000. At their base prices, the Countryman and Paceman are in line with such crossover SUVs as the Honda CR-V, Toyota RAV4 and Ford Escape; higher than the Kia Sportage, Nissan Juke and Mazda CX-5; but lower than the premium compact SUV Buick Encore. Before buying, be sure to check the Fair Purchase Price to see what others in your area are paying for the 2014 Countryman or Paceman. Like other Mini vehicles, predicted resale value is a bright spot for both the Countryman and Paceman, with residuals expected to hold up very well.
