Not your typical BMW

We could be looking at the seven-seater version of the upcoming BMW 1-Series GT.

Wearing the same swirly camo as before, the prototype appears larger than the standard five-seater 1-Series GT and also has longer rear doors and an elongated wheelbase to grant easier access to the third row seats. In terms of design it should borrow some of the styling cues seen on the Concept Active Tourer (CAT) which was unveiled last year at Paris Motor Show.

It will allegedly be available with FWD and AWD setups and is likely to receive the new 3-cylinder, 1.5-liter TwinPower Turbo engine. BMW mentioned the gasoline engines will be offered in outputs varying from 122 HP (90 kW) to 224 HP (165 kW), while diesels will generate from 82 HP (60 kW) to 184 HP (135 kW). It's not known at the moment which versions of the engine the 1-Series GT seven-seater will get, but hopefully BMW will shed some light in the near future.

A hearse for a proper ride to the grave. No other words could describe just how awful looking this will be, shame on Bavarian Motor Works.

I'm confused... Isn't the class 1 the smallest of their family? Should I expect a class 7 looking like a Twingo next year?

could BMW please leave just one ( any one!) segment untouched, and focus on building the type of BMW that their core fans love? a seven seat 1 series GT?!? maybe they can do an all-electric, convertible, M version of this vehicle and check every imaginable box at once........ and in the process create a BMW no one will want!

The times when you see a BMW and you are sure its rear wheels are connected to the drivetrain are coming to an end. I don't understand why they can't stick to the old tradition. I know it has some disadvantages but still - RWD is one of the first things that comes to one's mind when hearing the word BMW. I find it a pity to "ruin" this heritage
