|   Monday, November 05, 2012
In comparison to the controversy that arose during the launch of the SUVs in the late 1990s, BMW confirmed that the brand's front wheel driving vehicles will become an acknowledge part of its prestigious line-up.

The German brand, BMW is well known for its drive cars which are rear-wheeled. In the 2012 Paris motor show the brand has shifted from its rear-wheel cars and presently showcasing the BMW Active Tourer Concept. The specialty of this model is that it focuses on the latest ‘UKL" front-driven architecture.
This is expected to be used in approximately 20 models alongside the 2013 Mini.

According to BMW inside sources the Active Tourer production version will incorporate a 2 Series badge. Also, it will be pitched with the B-Class of the Mercedes-Benz. It will be a mere example of one of the 20 probable models based on the platform of the UKL. It will also consist of the next-generation Mini.

As per BMW the pronouncement behind the production of the front-drive model is the results of the confidence gathered from the huge accomplishment of its SUV range models.

Previously, BMW argued over the issue that in order to provide the right driving characteristics a luxury car first and foremost need to rear-wheel driven. Former Australian boss of BMW even claimed that Audi was not a serious rival because it offered only all-wheel-drive and front-drive vehicles.

The car production company has recently reverted to its well-known advertising slogan, which goes like ‘Ultimate driving machine'.
The rear-driven layout was the best for the more influential luxury cars was the view of Dr. Frank Neiderlander, vice president of the service planning and product in BMW. The front driven models is proposed to take in three-cylinder petrol along with diesel engines. So, this cannot be considered as an issue.

He also emphasized on the fact thatBMW will not manufacture any models that fails to meet the fundamental nature of the brand's DNA.
The concept of front drive is seemed to have originated from its relation between the drivetrain, space for the technology inside, the outside dimension of the car and lastly by the suspension.

As per BMW officials, the official statement of BMW states that they are developing for the customers who love to have more interior space. Wheelbase should be long enough and have the flexibility on the usage of the interior. But all the things should be in a quite compact dimension.

In order to combine one has to notice that what would have been the right layout to achieve so. To solution of this problem was to arrive to a new concept, and the decision was taken in favor of the introduction of the front well driven concept. The thing that needs to be looked at the same time is how to manage that as this was still a BMW, because a car cannot be developed without this.
