What do we think then...

Looks ok but FWD? Clearly to get emissions as low as possible with the Hybrid technology..

Quite like the exterior - but the interior :sick: :sick:
If it's got breasts or wheels - it's going to give you trouble

It is a remould of the B-Class Merc. Nothing special there. It will appeal though to those wanting a change in badge. Who cares what drives the wheels? Most bmw owners dont even know.
please take time to just ask someone how they are. Kindness costs nothing, but means everything.

Another article here: http://www.whatcar.com/car-news/bmw-con ... led/263884" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

I like it, but I agree it does look very similar to the Merc B-class.

So true - the survey they conducted a year or so ago was quite astonishing wasn't it? Something like 75% of BMW owners didn't know which set of wheels drove their car! :shock:

Knew the 1GT was coming and have seen this several times but at the moment it's just called the 'concept active tourer', is it confirmed that this is the GT now? Has anyone seen the zagato coupe/roadster? :P

Not been confirmed yet as it earning the title 1GT, but it is in discussion.
