BMW has always known for its driving dynamics offering both style and latest technology for the last 40 years. Recently, the automaker unveiled its latest car called ‘Concept Sedan’ in China’s largest auto Show, Auto Guangzhou. The small sedan can be seen as the representation of a new direction forward for the German luxury carmaker.
The concept sedan will be having a front wheel drive design which apparently different from the BMW’s design so far. Normally BMW car models will have a rear- or all-wheel drive platform to a front-wheel setup. Surprisingly, a lot of BMW car owners did not realize that their BMW cars were not a front-wheel drive.
Therefore, because of this, BMW thought that it might just be easier if they just build front – wheel drive cars instead of building rear-wheel drive platforms which behaves like a front-wheel drive cars. And so, they came up with Concept Sedan.
Some advantages for front wheel drive cars includes improved fuel efficiency as it has lighter weight, lower in cost as it needs fewer material components to build and the installation is not as complicated as the rear-wheel drive. There are some disadvantages though such as the front part of the car might look a little bit bulky as it is where the engines are normally installed.
Nevertheless, the Concept Sedan might end the era of rear-wheel drive BMW.
