    Come closer. That’s it, a little closer to the page, because
    we have something we need to whisper in your digital ears: this, fellow
    petrolheads, is the BMW Concept Active Tourer, and it is front-wheel-drive.

    That’s right, a front-wheel-drive BMW. Makes you shudder
    inside a tad, doesn’t it? It might just be a concept set for the Paris Motor
    Show in a couple of weeks time, but make no mistake, this is the future for
     Munich.

    Yes, they’ve been knocking out front-drive hatches for
    donkeys’ years in the shape of the Mini, but this is the first time a proper
    modern BMW’s front wheels have got themselves a full time job. It’s meant to
    account for a massive sales chunk of BMW’s future, so it’s quite important.

    And as such, it’s taking both barrels and aiming squarely at
    the Mercedes-Benz B-Class. It’s dimensions, barring a little extra width, are
    nigh on identical, and that front, transversely mounted engine, says BMW,
    allows for more generous interior space.

    Ah yes, that engine. It’s a brand-new 1.5-litre turbocharged
    petrol three-cylinder unit, derived from Bee-Em’s magnificent 3.0-litre
    straight-six (yes, maths fans, it’s half), that will see service in all future
    BMW ‘Efficient Dynamics’ models, and powers only the front wheels. It’s coupled
    to an electric motor that fires on the rear axle capable of powering the car on
    its own. All in, the Tourer produces 190bhp, is capable of 0-62mph in less than
    eight seconds and maxes out at 120mph. All this, and it emits less than 60g/km
    and returns around 113mpg. Woah.

    Inside there’s “open-pore” laminated wood, lots of soft and
    smooth leather, an eight-inch display for sat nav and hybrid information, a
    head-up display for the driver, a panoramic sunroof, a rear setup able to split
    40:20:40, and some neat touches like mobile ‘Tablet’ clips for the rear
     passengers.

    And is it just us, or does this Beemer actually look quite
    smart, almost handsome? Yes, the grille might be huge but we’re used to that
    now, plus those 20s sit nicely and the overall stance sits pleasingly.

    This is BMW getting quite serious about practicality, so
    tell us, which premium mini-MPV would you plump for: this, or the Mercedes B-Class?

    And as such, it’s taking both barrels and aiming squarely at the Mercedes-Benz B-Class. It’s dimensions, barring a little extra width, are nigh on identical, and that front, transversely mounted engine, says BMW, allows for more generous interior space.

    Ah yes, that engine. It’s a brand-new 1.5-litre turbocharged petrol three-cylinder unit, derived from Bee-Em’s magnificent 3.0-litre straight-six (yes, maths fans, it’s half), that will see service in all future BMW ‘Efficient Dynamics’ models, and powers only the front wheels. It’s coupled to an electric motor that fires on the rear axle capable of powering the car on its own. All in, the Tourer produces 190bhp, is capable of 0-62mph in less than eight seconds and maxes out at 120mph. All this, and it emits less than 60g/km and returns around 113mpg. Woah.

    Inside there’s “open-pore” laminated wood, lots of soft and smooth leather, an eight-inch display for sat nav and hybrid information, a head-up display for the driver, a panoramic sunroof, a rear setup able to split 40:20:40, and some neat touches like mobile ‘Tablet’ clips for the rear passengers.

    And is it just us, or does this Beemer actually look quite smart, almost handsome? Yes, the grille might be huge but we’re used to that now, plus those 20s sit nicely and the overall stance sits pleasingly.

    This is BMW getting quite serious about practicality, so tell us, which premium mini-MPV would you plump for: this, or the Mercedes B-Class?

  14. Come closer. That’s it, a little closer to the page, because we have something we need to whisper in your digital ears: this, fellow petrolheads, is the BMW Concept Active Tourer, and it is front-wheel-drive.

    That’s right, a front-wheel-drive BMW. Makes you shudder inside a tad, doesn’t it? It might just be a concept set for the Paris Motor Show in a couple of weeks time, but make no mistake, this is the future for Munich.

    Yes, they’ve been knocking out front-drive hatches for donkeys’ years in the shape of the Mini, but this is the first time a proper modern BMW’s front wheels have got themselves a full time job. It’s meant to account for a massive sales chunk of BMW’s future, so it’s quite important.
