BMW confirmed CS production
At the Tokyo Motor Show, BMW confirmed that the CS Concept unveiled at the 2007 Shanghai Auto Show will indeed go into production. The production version is expected to be unveiled at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show.
The production model is supposed to be a competitor for the Mercedes CLS-Class. BMW has confirmed that the 2009 CS will keep the same kidney grille as the concept.
The front-end design of the BMW Concept CS is a particularly striking example of the consistent enhancement of BMW’s design language. Here the BMW kidney grille stands out as a powerful element typical of the BMW brand and naturally a famous icon of body design, giving the car its unique look and emphasizing the flow of air into the engine. Indeed, the kidney grille is not only the central, but also the dominating element in the design of the entire front end.
