A stretched and potentially seven-seat version of the BMW 2 Series Active Tourer has been spotted testing at the Nurburgring.
This isn't the first time we've seen BMW's mini-MPV, but its presence at the famous test track shows that BMW is taking its performance seriously.
With this stickered-up prototype cutting some neat lines around the Nurburgring, it looks like the 2 Series Active Tourer, uh, Tourer, should have the dynamic performance demanded by BMW buyers.
Another protoype shows that all bodywork forward of the B-pillar should be identical to the regular five-seater 2 Series Active Tourer, while the wheelbase appears to be slightly longer to create a more spacious cabin.
Powertrains should mirror those offered by the regular 2 Series Active Tourer hatch, with a range of three and four-cylinder turbocharged petrol and diesel engines driving the front wheels.
A release date has yet to be firmed up, but the smart money says we'll see it hit European showrooms in 2015.
The 2 Series Active Tourer hatch is due to launch in Australia in the late third quarter, or sometime in the fourth quarter of this year.
