This is going to compete against the X5 or the MB M Class ?





What happened to that beautiful concept Pikes Peak ?

Looks more like a cross between a tall wagon and a minivan than an SUV. It doesn't look very substantial.

Cover up a good part of the huge tail lights, paint the whole thing black and you have the same car.

Hmm, now that I look at it again, it appears that they painted the body a red that matches the tail lights around the tail light lens to disguise the appearance. I bet the production version has the squinty lights with no black stripe on the C(D?)-pillar.

The clip says it's based on the Touareg, so it can't be *that* small. Is the Pacifica based on an SUV platform, a minivan, or something completely standalone?

Holy huge tail lights, batman! I hope BMW does a cleaner, more aggressive job on the new SMV (Sports Mini Van ) than this. It looks kind of like a neutered Touareg (sp?).
