The BMW Concept Active Tourer doesn’t look any part of a concept, at least not compared to what we’ve been accustomed to when that word is attached to a model name.
But we’re not holding against the Bavarian automaker because if for nothing else, it has a track record of building some pretty sick concepts, like the Vision EfficientDynamics ) in the past.
But the Concept Active Tourer doesn’t look like one and we’re confident that it will hit production sooner rather than later. That being said, BMW is treating it as such and it’s even taken to introducing a separate concept variant called the Concept Active Tourer Outdoor.
Everything about the Concept Active Tourer Outdoor is ostensibly similar to the Concept Active Tourer , albeit one aimed at those looking to get their outdoor fixes. It also uses the same 1.5-liter three-cylinder plug-in hybrid powerplant found in the original Concept Active Tourer.
The dynamic dimensions are all there, sporting the balance of luxury and sportiness that’s definitely fit for the outdoors. It also has that sporty look you rarely see in crossovers, a testament to what kind of production model the concept is going to be.
This model does boast of a Gold Race Orange paint finish, which in it of itself is fancy enough to warrant a separate concept model.
The interior was also treated some up-standard upholstery, including MoonWhite and MoonRock Grey leather, materials that should stand up well when in contact with outdoor equipment. Finally, an interior bike rack was also added, capable of carrying up to bicycles at a given go.
