Spied: BMW Compact Active Tourer (CAT) image

The BMW Compact Active Tourer has been recently spied while it was being tested on the track.

The German based automaker BMW is continuing to surprise us by developing more and more models almost every week and the latest creation to wear the company’s badges all over its body is named the Compact Active Tourer, or the CAT, as it is known internally. The images posted below are showing the new BMW Compact Active Tourer while it’s being tested on the track and despite its camouflage, we can still see some of its lines, including the roof or the A-, B- and C-pillars.

Our spy photographers are saying that the BMW Compact Active Tourer will be part of the company’s compact class, which will be named the UKL. This already contains vehicles like the standard 1-Series and all the MINI models, but it will also add new vehicles, like the Family Activity Sports Tourer (FAST), an off-roader below the X1, the JOY, a two-door below the 1-series, the MINI Multi Activity Transport (MAT) or the CAT pictured below. All cars will get front- or all-wheel drive and the Compact Active Tourer should be introduced in 2014 or 2015.
