Once again our European photographers have stumbled across the new 5-series-based BMW PAS. So far there is little in terms of official details, but our spy-shots of the PAS now reveal it’s a true fastback.
With rival Mercedes-Benz designing a car for every single person on earth, BMW has taken a different approach, instead of competing head on, the company has begun creating new cars for previously untapped segments. The best example being the new BMW X6.
The new PAS would be again in a different league, allowing more headroom than in the X6 while being significantly smaller than Mercedes’ R-class.
The more car-like approach seen on this prototype seems better-suited to BMW’s values than a full-size van, and although these spy-photos do not reveal all of the car’s design, it does appear to resemble a kind of coupé-like design.
We expect more or less all 5-series’ engines to be available for the PAS, too. There are currently no details about the car's release date in Europe or in Australia.
