Ever wanted a pickup, but found the midsize trucks too big? Then, take a look at the MINI Paceman Adventure concept. This might be the versatile vehicle of choice for couples with active lifestyle. The Paceman does offer the ALL4 all wheel drive system and the Adventure concept goes a bit further with off-road goodies, such as: a snorkel air intake, off-road lights, and a sturdy roof-rack that can handle a full-size spare tire. There is even a hitch in case you want to tow small trailers.
The bed area is miniature, but two bicycles will surely fit with the tailgate folded down.
The MINI Paceman Cooper S is powered by a 1.8L turbocharged four-cylinder with 181 horsepower and 177 lb-ft. The torque comes in early, at 1,600 rpms, so the Adventure mini-pickup should be able to do many truck-like tasks.
