MINI has confirmed its new Paceman will hit Australia with a pair of petrol options: a 'base' Cooper and the sportier Cooper S.

Revealed in September, the Paceman will be offered overseas with petrol and diesel engines, but a focus on the coupe's sporting image will see local options limited to petrol options only.

The engines available to Australian buyers will be familiar to fans, the Cooper powered by a 90kW/160Nm 1.6 litre mill, and the Cooper S getting a more powerful 135kW heart.

MINI promises a 10.4 second sprint to 100km/h in the Cooper, while the S model lists a 0-100km/h time of 7.5 seconds.

In Cooper form, the Paceman will offer combined fuel consumption figures of 6.5 l/100km, while the Cooper S lists a very close 6.6 l/100km.

A John Cooper Works version is also expected, and we can likely expect the same 160kW/280Nm engine that drives the JCW-enhanced Countryman.

While local pricing is still to be confirmed, it is likely the Paceman's tag will carry a small premium over its five-door Countryman stablemate.

Six-speed manual and automatic transmissions will be available, and the Cooper S will get MINI's ALL4 all-wheel-drive system.

On the design front, the Paceman carries much of the Countryman's style, while showing off a chopped and tapered roofline and an all-new rear-end design.

Although it has two fewer doors, the Paceman is no smaller than its Countryman donor car, measuring the same 4110mm in length and 1789mm width.

The cabin of the Paceman offers seating for four, and rear storage capacity is listed at 1080 litres with the back seats down, and 330 litres when upright.

By comparison, the Countryman's squarer roofline and taller glasshouse ensures a more capacious rear area, listed at 1170 and 350 litres.

Keeping the Paceman in-line with its sporting looks, MINI has gifted the three-door with a 10mm lower ride height an a re-tuned chassis for improved handling.

Pricing and specific features for the Paceman will be revealed in the coming months.
