The midsize-compact van builds atop the BMW Concept Active Tourer unveiled last year in Paris and features an exclusive Gold Race Orange exterior paintwork. The sporty design comes with generous levels of interior space and the variable rear compartment is designed to accommodate sports and leisure equipment. A carrier system for two bicycles (integrated into the interior) was added to the BMW Concept Active Tourer Outdoor. The setup can be seen below.
