All indicators are go for the PAS (Progressive Activity Sedan) according to Auto Motor und Sport and it will hit the stage in Frankfurt next year.

Essentially think F10 5 series, in hatch back form rather than a sport wagon, an X6 without the “X “. There have been some spy shots on the net but this artist impression is a good look at what the overall theme of the vehicle will be.

It is interesting that they are going to build this “hatch ” and more than likely target the US with it but have no plans to bring the hatch people actually want, the 1 Series. BMW does intend to design and build a car for each niche market moving forward but the real question is if this model will replace the sport wagon and/or just impact the sales number of them.
