Autobild have spoilt the surprise in some regards a few weeks early as they preview the 1er Compactive Sports Tourer in their latest issue.
No matter what you think about the concept, BMW's curent focus is on a product offensive and by that , concepts that can be conceived by extensive matrix sharing and the latest modular platforms.
The vehicles due from BMW over the next year are purely profit driven products.
The 1er Compactive Sports Tourer and the BMW 3er Gran Turismo will both be shown in concept form at the Paris Autoshow in September.
Marking the first spun-off models from the existing 1er and 3er portfolios.
And the first generation of a new profitable MINI family.
