After revealing the Pininfarina Grand Lusso concept in Italy last week, BMW is now said to be readying the 1 Series based mini MPV. Taking the boat in a new shallow, BMW will make this MPV a seven seater which will compete with the B Class which is positioned aggressively against the 1 Series. This model is said to make a global debut by next year at Geneva 2014 Motor Show.
The differences between the BMW Active Tourer Concept of 2012 Paris Motor Show and the new 1 Series makeover are the longer rear doors and the stretched rear roof. Hence one can also call it as 1 Series GT while looking at its ergonomics.
However, launch dates are still in the dark but we hope the bespoken model plate to make initial debut in the standard wheelbase only, followed by stretched version at a later stage, expectedly till 2015.
