BMW teases forthcoming 1-series GT MPV

The BMW Concept Active Tourer Outdoor is the latest glimpse into BMW’s front-wheel-drive future. The concept will evolve into the BMW 1-series GT and will be one of more than 20 front-drive models sold under the BMW and Mini brands.

BMW’s latest concept will be unveiled at a German outdoor pursuits show, highlighting what BMW describes as a “fresh route to combining sporting aesthetics and style with compact dimensions and functionality”.

Its maker claims “generous” interior space and a variable rear compartment that’s designed to offer everyday usability and space for outdoor sports equipment. The Concept Active Tourer Outdoor has a large tailgate with a low lip and a wide aperture. The boot also houses a bicycle carrier which folds away when not in use. The interior features a centre console that ‘floats’ between the front seats and is claimed to improve front legroom. The upholstery is trimmed in durable fabric and is contrasted by a leather covering for the boot floor stowage compartment.
