With the BMW Z4 grabbing most of the attention these days, we ignored the other BMW’s new model, the Progressive Activity Sedan, or short, PAS. Nothing has changed from the previous photos we posted, but after seeing the latest artist renderings, I have a pretty good idea what direction BMW will take the PAS. Quoting a BMW source, the “The Progressive Activity Sedan is an individual solution for the progressive individual who has become bored of a regular sedan and SUV but with no compromise on driver enjoyment.”

The first rendering we posted in this article, seems to fit the profile. The BMW Progressive Activity Sedan will have crisp sharp lines , shallow glasshouse , very aerodynamic swooping roof in the form of a coupe and long bonnet more like a car. Think coupe-like roofline, but a little taller compared to the X6. We also know that it will be longer than the X6, measuring around 192.91 inch.

We also learned that the  Progressive Activity Sedan will take some design cues from the recently revealed BMW 7 Series and it will be marketed as a model between the 2010 BMW 5 Series and the 7 Series.

Pricing will be set accordingly, which will make it a quite expensive model. As far as the engine options, the usual suspects will most likely make its way into the engine lineup: the award winning 3.0 liter twin-turbo, along with its diesel counterpart, and a V8 engine.

    the rear part of this car looks hideous. if the car will look exactly like this one it could easily win the an award for ugliest ride of the year.
