2014 MINI Paceman Values & Cars for Sale | Kelley Blue Book (2023)

The 2014 Mini Cooper Countryman and Paceman are the big Minis. Want a Mini but need room for the family? The Countryman is your pick. Want a sportier 2-door? Take the Paceman. The 4-door Countryman offers seating for five, a rear hatch and the versatility you would expect from a compact SUV. The 2-door Paceman has a sporty, distinctive look that matches that of the Mini Cooper Coupe, but with more room inside. Both are available with all-wheel drive (AWD) and a range of performance levels. While the Countryman doesn’t offer the cargo capacity of such as the Ford Escape or Honda CR-V, both it and the Paceman deliver the charming style and miles-of-smiles driving enjoyment that are built into Mini ownership.

Used 2014 MINI Paceman Pricing

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 KBB.com 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.

Driving the Used 2014 MINI Paceman

Minis have developed a reputation for go-kart handling but that’s actually unfair; Minis are much better than that. Go-karts ride like, well, go-karts. Minis, on the other hand, are among the most responsive production vehicles on the road, due to their light weight, small size and crafty suspension tuning, but they also deliver an entirely reasonable level of compliance and comfort. Still, even though the bigger Countryman and Paceman might lack a bit of the storied quickness of the smaller models, they are still snappy and crisp when dealing with pavement that goes thisaway and thataway. If you want more, the turbocharged Cooper S version should do the trick or, to go all the way, the John Cooper Works editions bring more than 200 horsepower. Whichever one you pick, every Mini that rolls off a showroom floor is almost guaranteed to bring smiles to the face of its happy driver.

Interior Comfort

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 Styling

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.

Favorite Features

What every Mini offers is driving enjoyment that is unique and unmatched in its ability to deliver giggles per mile for the money. Even if faced with a long commute, at least you get to tackle those bumper-to-bumper miles in a Mini.

In addition to the usual tech features, Mini’s system uses a driver’s smartphone and apps to play Web-based audio, access social-media sites and even utilize Google Send to Car, which emails destinations you’ve chosen beforehand. Furthermore, it’s presented on a color 6.5-inch screen housed within the Mini’s big central speedometer.

Standard Features

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.

Factory Options

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 (www.miniusa.com) is an entertaining experience in its own right.

Engine & Transmission

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.

KBB Vehicle Review and Rating Methodology

Our Expert Ratings come from hours of both driving and number crunching to make sure that you choose the best car for you. We comprehensively experience and analyze every new SUV, car, truck, or minivan for sale in the U.S. and compare it to its competitors. When all that dust settles, we have our ratings.

(Video) MINI COUNTRYMAN BLUE 42271miles

We require new ratings every time an all-new vehicle or a new generation of an existing vehicle comes out. Additionally, we reassess those ratings when a new-generation vehicle receives a mid-cycle refresh — basically, sprucing up a car in the middle of its product cycle (typically, around the 2-3 years mark) with a minor facelift, often with updates to features and technology.

Rather than pulling random numbers out of the air or off some meaningless checklist, KBB’s editors rank a vehicle to where it belongs in its class. Before any car earns its KBB rating, it must prove itself to be better (or worse) than the other cars it’s competing against as it tries to get you to spend your money buying or leasing.

Our editors drive and live with a given vehicle. We ask all the right questions about the interior, the exterior, the engine and powertrain, the ride and handling, the features, the comfort, and of course, about the price. Does it serve the purpose for which it was built? (Whether that purpose is commuting efficiently to and from work in the city, keeping your family safe, making you feel like you’ve made it to the top — or that you’re on your way — or making you feel like you’ve finally found just the right partner for your lifestyle.)

We take each vehicle we test through the mundane — parking, lane-changing, backing up, cargo space and loading — as well as the essential — acceleration, braking, handling, interior quiet and comfort, build quality, materials quality, reliability.
