    BMW 2-Series Active Tourer M rendered - Absurd or is this something BMW would actually consider?

    The BMW 2-Series Active Tourer is being derided by BMW enthusiasts for the most part (and rightfully so). It officially signals a shift in BMW ideology and direction. The company cares more about sales volume now as a re-skinned Mini Countryman with BMW badges is something so absurd BMW would have laughed the person suggesting the model right out of the boardroom. Well, times have changed and what was once thought to be absurd now exists.

    The real scary thing is, an M version of the 2-Series Active Tourer is not even that far from reality. BMW has not announced any intention to build such a model but considering the M badge is basically for sale these days there is actually a chance for this car to get an M version. BMW would likely defend it by stating it would be the perfect rival for the Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG.

    BMW has not completely lost their minds yet so nothing like this will come about hopefully. However, this rendering even existing shows that the thought has already popped into someone's head. It likely has popped into someone's head at BMW as well then. If BMW wants to spit on the last bit of their pride and heritage that remains unblemished, this would be the perfect car to do it with.

    The problem is this does not even sound as ridiculous as it should.
