The new 2013 MINI Paceman is small modern crossover…at least as measured by the XL size of today’s American Crossovers.

But the newest MINI is no so mini when measured in historic terms.

It is in fact absolutely gigantic when compared to the original MINI.

Not only is the new 2013 MINI Paceman gigantic by historic standard, but you could almost fit the old MINI into the new one.

Of course in a country of towering pickups, the old MINI could be nothing more than just a speed bump for a Ford F-1250.

Is there room in the market place for a truly mini MINI? We think so. Go old school MINI and go small again…Please.
