    German automobile manufacturer BMW is ready to start producing front-wheel drive cars built on a new platform. The company has to act in such a way to remain on top of the premium cars segment.

    However, BMW fans in their turn are unimpressed with this plan being sure that the real BMW could be only rear-driven. But BMW representatives do not agree with it. According to them, in the 90's BMW fans actively criticized the manufacturing of the BMW crossover as well but very soon they realized that everything what is great about BMW sedans had also been applied to a crossover. And BMW is sure that it will be the same in this case as well.

    Besides, German company considers front-wheel drive cars to show really good promise. BMW has already arranged the project of a new front-wheel drive platform UKL and one of its biggest advantages is that the company can realize several new models on it at once – 12 in the upcoming eight to ten years, including 1-Series GT, MINI Cooper, big sedan and compact SUV. It is noteworthy that BMW already has a concept of a front-wheel drive model called Active Tourer.
