BMW Signs off Mommy-Mover

After many years of consideration and thought, BMW has finally entered the market controlled by the likes of the Renault Scenic and Chrysler Grand Voyager. They are going to launch a mommy mover known as a Cross Over / Utility vehicle.

The idea has been around for a while and it is a feasible area of the market to exploit so there is no reason why BMW shouldnt. It will be known as the F3 and should reach showrooms by 2010 according to BMW sources. It will have the usual line up of BMW engines like the 2.0L petrol and 3.0L diesel and there is a possibility of the 3.0L Twin Turbo being shoved in. As in true Cross Over / Utility style, the car will feature seven seats and the features from the X3.

Personally I think it is a horrendous design and is further proof that making money is more important than making cars.
