BMW New Front Wheel Drive Cars Officially Confirmed for 2014
Unfortunately for the BMW fan, some of these models will have front wheel drive, as Diess said in an interview for Auto Motor und Sport.
When asked whether the fans will be disappointed by the new front wheel drive BMWs, Diess said that the front wheel drive cars will only represent a fraction of the cars produced by BMW. For all the rear wheel drive fanatics, the 3 Series, 5 Series, 7 Series and so on, current models and future ones, will keep the BMW feel.
The new front wheel drive cars will only play a small part on the BMW scene, and will be addressed to those that want the BMW luxury and quality, but do not desire the thrills.
Either way, the purpose of the BMW car will still be to offer the customer the "Ultimate Driving Machine".
