I realy like Estoril Blue. It should NOT be allowed on this.
Let's keep it just for M styled cars not for a shopping trolley to make it appear sporty
I dont understand BMW's logic lately. They come up with a great range of new engines then do this type of thing

M Sport will be available for the FWD BMW models as customers will be given the option of adding the more sporting profile to their Active Tourer and other models.

The great thing about this new BMW family is how well it integrates well with the new MINI family. This is not the VW Up! etc one concept with different front and rears and different price tags to consider when they are exactly alike.
But an entire split of both car families using same mechanicals , components and plaform furnished by individual exterior , interior and overall character and dynamics.

The MINI sister car to the Active Tourer kind of looks like this , dubbed "SpaceBox" internally because of its use of allround glass to enhance spatial feel with natural light. Think of it like an enlarged MINI Clubman complete with MINI character rear-hinged doors and possibly given the direction of the MINI Traveller when it reaches production.
The other interesting thing about the BMW FWD concepts is that they will indeed inherit something else from MINI and be previewed as concepts ahead of production models just like MINI started in 2005 with the Clubman and then in 2008 with the Crossover concept.

Thanks for confirming the M Sport versions Scott, we are now entering an exciting time for BMW with these new power trains!
