With Audi and Mercedes rampantly trying to fill every conceivable segment, BMW has been stepping up development of its own niche vehicles, including the X6 CUV and now, a contender in the it's-not-a-minivan crowd, the V-Series.
The 3-Series wagon-bodied prototype supposedly foretells what BMW plans to pit against the Mercedes R-Class, sporting third-row seating and a somewhat higher ride height.

Little is known about the V-Series yet, but if KGP's spies are to be trusted, we should expect to see BMW's newest people-mover hitting the market sometime in 2010.

      Eh.I'm not liking that these premium luxury sports car makers are developing 3 row people movers.Yeesch.I mean BMW?especially BMW doing that?Please. M-B is bad enough with their nerdy 'R" class (and "A" class).It's like they're whoring away their brand identity to move crap for posers.Sorry for the attitude ,but that's my first unfiltered response.

        The A class and R class are very good cars with very good performance and luxury package.

        I think you don't like that what you think as "poser" get to drive a brand that you choose because you think the brand stand for macho(i am using the American meaning which is extreme masculine since Latino meaning is a man that is very responsible to his family) and exclusive to the uber rich.

      Looks just like another wagon. Nothing like the Mercedes R-Class; this BMW appears way smaller.

      I like wagons, but BMW already has the 3-series wagon, the 5-series wagon, the X3, X5... So what's the point?

      that is a 3series Touring...no crossover nothing speciall...just a 3series Touring testmule...


      wagons are very popular in Europe..BMW would be stupid if they would not sell the 3series as a Touring (wagon)

      maybe it is a 323d, using the new twin turbo inline-4 diesel

      I just don't understand why they wouldn't call it like the X4 or X6 or something like that. Just doesn't make sense to me since when I read "V-series" I thought Cadillac.

        They cannot use the "x" since x stand for xtreme and suv.
