Spy shots

BMW PAS

Once again we stumble accross the new 5-series-based BMW PAS testing...

We were told BMW’s new X6 would be a direct rival to the Mercedes CLS – and that it is definitely not. BMW also made us believe the new PAS (or RFK, if you prefer) would be Munich’s answer to the Mercedes R Class – but again, this appears to be a false information. Our spy-shots of the PAS now reveal it’s a true fastback, 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, enthusiasts might be a bit disappointed by the car’s rational – though kind of coupé-like – design. We expect more or less all 5-Series’ engines to be available for the PAS, too. Never seen before was the frameless doors of the new car.
