BMW 225i Active Tourer Spied

Originally thought to be a 1-Series now morphs into a 2-series

The BMW Active Tourer concept originally thought to be a 1-Series GT was captured for the first time without camouflage. To our surprise this is not a 1-Series at all, rather a badged 225i compact. These photos show the 225i being filmed possibly for a BMW promo or commercial behind a performance-oriented canyon backdrop.

While its looks are somewhat Minivan-ish we predict soccer moms and road trippers alike will find the 225i's proportions useful. Based on what we know about the BMW Concept, expect plug-in hybrid technology featured on the 225i. Taking care of the powerplant will possibly be a small displacement 1.5L engine that produces in the neighborhood of 190hp and reaches 0-60mph in just under 8sec.

Expect innovative features such as the interior trunk bike racks and functional exterior aerodynamics that appeal to the on-the-go driver. We will keep our ears open for full specs and features come the new year.
