New Front-Wheel Drive BMWs Coming Says CEO


So far we have heard several reports of a new front-drive model from BMW, but now comes confirmation from BMW CEO Norbert Reithofer. "There will be front-wheel-drive BMWs in the smaller vehicle classes in the future," said Reithofer during a press conference about the German automaker's finances.

The architecture will actually be both front-drive and AWD capable and will be used for a new lineup of BMW and MINI cars Ė meaning MINIs are also set to get AWD. Currently all BMW models are rear-wheel or all-wheel drive.

According to Automotive News, the new platform will arrive in 2013 with the third generation of the new MINI hatch. Up to 20 different BMW and MINI models are set to ride on this new architecture.
