The MINI Countryman brought about many sessions of controversial banter to the MINI brand amongst enthusiasts on whether a larger than usual four-door vehicle fit within the MINI brand. But whether the spirit of it is right or wrong, it’s probably here to stay, and won’t be part of certain MINI models that might not get renewed with the next life cycle. And the Countryman family has now been extended with a coupe sister called the MINI Paceman.

Here’s a gallery of the Countryman next to its sleeker two-doored cousin, the MINI Paceman, which will be launched in Malaysia later this year. Which do you prefer, the Countryman or the Paceman?
