I'm sure there's people out there with M6's and 760's that feel the same way about diesel coupe 3-ers! I don't mean any disrespect by that, just that it's a matter of perspective.

If they badged this vehicle as a MINI it would probably shift half the number of units, if that.. and all the MINI fans would be whining it was too big to be called a MINI.

I'm curious how they make it outdoorsy... maybe a Camper style vehicle with a raiseable accordian roof I'd rock that
Press release mentions 'outdoor' and 'new terrain'. Suspect it might be some sort of MPV/4x4 crossover.
I've been a fan of BMW for as long as i can remember and the concept active tourer really hits the mark for me; Spacious, fuel efficient, practical, BMW. My 3's great but I have kids and a tourer's only just a bit more practical, more expensive and still has low roof line, meaning too many awkward positions putting kids in car in car parks.:-)
