BMW has unveiled its new Active Tourer Outdoor concept, but if you were thinking of a ruggedised high-riding version of the earlier Active Tourer (we were - Ed), you've got another think coming.

No, this 'new' concept is all about interior utility, showcasing the new hatch's capacity for carrying a sizeable load. And, being a concept, this one also comes with integrated support arms for a couple of treadlies.

Little else about the Active Tourer Outdoor is new, and BMW has foregone the usual tweaks that come with the 'weekender' theme. There's no hard plastic guards, no jacked-up suspension and no (well, not much) hard-wearing interior trim.

So, no; while it is smaller, the Active Tourer Outdoor is no sub-X1 crossover. But, like the Active Tourer before it, we can likely expect the Outdoor to represent BMW's upcoming 1 Series GT hatch.

The new 1 GT range will slot into the BMW family below the existing 1 Series range - but unlike the current '1er', this new hatch will be the Bavarian carmaker's first front-wheel-drive offering.

The Active Tourer is 4350mm long, 1834mm wide and 1560mm tall, making it 26mm longer, 69mm wider and a whopping 139mm taller than the 1 Series.

The concept's wheelbase is shorter however, coming in at 2670mm to the 1 Series' 2690mm.

By comparison, the new Mercedes-Benz B-Class is 4359mm long, 1786mm wide and 1557mm tall, riding on a 2700mm wheelbase.

Power for the Active Tourer is provided by BMW's new 1.5 litre three-cylinder petrol engine, mated to an electric motor that can, if necessary, drive the hatch on its own.
