The restless insider Scott27 returns with a new rumor. BMW is apparently working on a new concept that will be sitting under the 1 Series family. Rumors of a BMW Compactive Sport Tourer and BMW Advanced Sport Tourer models first surfaced in June, and according to sources close to BMW refered to the two models as an answer to customer request for extended space in family-oriented vehicle that offers more flexibility in a much smaller car.

Once again, these are just rumors at the moment and most likely, if the projects indeed exist, they are still in the very early phases.

“A new Concept BMW is working on for the sub-1er family is the new BMW Compact.

It is originally known as the Compactive Sports Tourer portfolio which so far includes the BMW Family Activity Sports Tourer,  BMW Compactive Sports Tourer and the 3er based Advanced Activity Sports Tourer.

Rumor: Future BMW Compacts   Family Activity Sports Tourer

The illustration is an early representation, but I believe it is still being fine tuned in certain areas. When I talked about the “Y” or “K” this could become a spin-off model of the same platform.

In this illustration, it shows some ideas that are coming in future BMWs, in fact when the MegaCity Vehicle is launched you will see the design transition filtered through to the series models. It will give BMW possibly the most modern and current looking cars on the market.

What would you say If I told you that this design is without the smaller kidney grille and includes larger taller and thinner brake intakes that fold with the sheet metal – Vision Efficient Dynamics style. ”

    Except for the kidneys i dont recognize it as BMW…
    The headlights is some new form of uglyness like the old 5

  • Tom

    cool rendering, very aggresive

    If you change the lower aerodynamics and enlarge the kidney grille you get an almost exact appearance of the next X5. And if you turn the lights up at the corners you get the next X6.

    cut the ear of the headlights and it will be better. But I dig it.. too bad it will be a FWD platform… this compact whatever looks pretty cool !

  • Giom

    One of the best renderings I’ve seen. That front-end is awsome!

  • M

    It looks like a bigger Mazda 3 or a a curvier Toyota Matrix….
    BMWwants to expand to the more affordable market…be careful, Mercedes tried it with the B series, I hope BMW does not repeat the mistake.

  • Kenee

    I thought this was to be the new 5 GT facelift when I first saw the picture in Munich which now seems to be used to suggest a different car. I guess this tells you how much you need to be careful about these type of photos.
