Adrian van Hooydonk and Oliver Heilmer discuss design of the inspiring and elegant new concept from BMW. Over the last couple of months the press has speculated what BMW has in the cards for the Geneva Motor Show. “Progressive Activity Sedan” is a new vehicle category that is set to reshuffle the cards in the premium upper medium segment. Adrian van Hooydonk explains what “Progressive Activity Sedan” or PAS exactly stands for and how it defines a new category. With a semi-command seating position, perfect entry (no climbing up), headroom on BMW X5 level and legroom in the rear almost on the level of a BMW 7 Series long wheelbase, the BMW 5 Series Gran Turismo offers impressive dimensions and much more space for driver and passengers than you would expect when you see the car from the outside. From a design perspective, through its dynamic and elegant lines the BMW 5 Series Gran Turismo lives out all the character of a modern sedan with a fastback rear of a traditional Gran Turismo. Oliver Heilmer talks about the sophisticated interior and generous space for the driver and passengers, making this Concept a truly progressive automobile for customers who attach the same importance to a relaxed feeling of space and variability as to elegance and driving pleasure. Showcasing the twin trunk lid, Oliver Heilmer explains this unique feature that offers maximum flexibility. When was the last time you experienced something for the first time surely fits this inspiring and elegant new concept from BMW.
