Autobild on PAS/ F5

Translated using Google

Mercedes R-class is no sales racer, nevertheless pushes now also BMW into this luxury market gap: On basis of the coming Fünfers the PAS is to develop - a Progressive Activity Sedan of the elevated kind.

And progressive Activity Sedan PAS supplies starting from 2009 also equal the proof for it with that. The new, spacefunctional concept that presented with the X6 Bavaria stands for the first time for “stresses emotional vehicles, the area as luxury interprets new and with BMW-typical driving fun connects”. We look nevertheless times, what means this marketing German in the real life. With the PAS it acts around a kind R-class out of Bavaria. Like the X6 it shows a coupéähnliche roof line, comes in the basic version as four seater and sets on all-wheel drive as well as High end engines. Largest difference: The X6 divides the genes with the X5, the PAS with the next Fünfer Touring (internal code: F11, start in June 2010). And during with the X6 the all-wheel drive series is, must it with the PAS be to it-ordered. From the basic price both cars lie closely together, with which focused numbers of items the PAS is to still overtrump the X6.

Behind the PAS a roofridge Class four seater hides itself
What differentiates the PAS from the Fünfer Touring? No, not only the Design. Separates above all the Interieur. The PAS wants to be a roofridge Class four seater, a fine travel car with single seats also in the back, at height, length and inclination to be adjusted be able. Heating, ventilation and Massagefunktion do not have to be mentioned in this league particularly. In addition a modular developable and to the rear extended center console comes, in which among other things DVD screens, files, climatic outlets, connections for MP3-Player and headphone, a iDrive CONTROLLER as well as folding tables hide themselves - Businessclass for the motorway. Who likes it more essentially, gets the PAS also as 4+1-Sitzer with doubly more divided as well as separated hinged back bank and fully concealable middle seat. Originally BMW wanted to carry out the PAS with Coach Doors - in the back fastened Fondtüren -, but that was too expensive and reminded the Entscheider too much of Rolls-Royces. Something distance must be. But the two-stage rear flap segneten the bosses off. It facilitates the entrance to the baggage compartment, whose minimum capacity of 600 litres exceeds the Fünfer Touring. With flat put Gestühl to fit even 1750 litres inside.

The basic model weighs full 1900 kilograms
In order to stress the Coupé character, set BMW on extremely short overhangs, broadly issued fender with large wheels (from the 245/55-R-18-Serienrad to the 21-Zöller everything is possible), easily shifted Schweller and a completely independent tail conclusion with divided lights. The wheel base lies with scarce over three meters on half height between short and long Siebener. The rear leg liberty corresponds to the Rolls-Royce phantom in the comfort position against it even: and despite the external length of approximately 4.85 meters. Those are particularly proud Bavaria on the comfortable in and door for the rear passengers and on the good all-round visibility. The height larger opposite the Fünfer Touring around six centimeters owes the PAS also to the wheel diameter grown on 728 millimeters. Behind reproached hand the developers call a cW-value of 0,31. With the weights we should expect however no fable values: In addition, the basic model weighs full 1900 Kilos, may stately 600 Kilos zuladen.

From the appearance the PAS fits in no raster: It is neither MPV nor SUV - and also no combination. The requirements of its handling are clearly defined against it. It must become simply the best one in its segment. So for example the PAS 3.0i is to accelerate mechanism with 306 horse power in 6.7 seconds of zero on 100 km/h. To the comparison: A 335i is only 1.2 seconds faster. At the same time a total consumption is promised from 10,5 litres to 100 kilometers, to which a range of 750 kilometers suggests. The handling of the PAS is to hearing after in all substantial disciplines on the level of the new Fünfer Touring. Even critical maneuvers such as Wanken, a craving, a linking or the controllableness in the frontier earn the Top quality seal according to in-house estimate. The turning circle pleasing close with twelve meters as well as the very short braking distance, which undercut the 38-Meter-Marke with cold and with warm plant, are worth mentioning. As is the case for other BMW models there is to be a large offer of Assistenzsystemen also for the PAS like active steering element, Wankstabilisierung, absorber regulation, electrohydraulical brake or adaptive Cruise control (Tempomat).

For the start it will give four engines
BMW dedicates itself with the PAS also strengthens to the topic loss energies. Meant: BMW dedicates itself with the PAS also strengthens to the topic loss energies. Meant: Energy, which develops for example when braking, is converted, in order to fill memory cells, the Nebenaggregate such as air conditioning system or generator to propel. That saves Sprit and the environment already. As soon as the conditions for this feeding energy cycle are series ripe (lithium ion batteries and another software), want those native of Munich their Efficient Dynamics projection/lead also since the hybrid range to expand. Until it is so far, it remains with the following aggregates:
• PAS 3.0d, 245 PS/550Nm
• PAS 3.0sd, 300 PS/650Nm
• PAS 3.0si, 306 PS/400Nm
• PAS 4.0si, 408 PS/600Nm of the V8-Diesel is spareless painted. Why?

Because the row six cylinder is still for a long time not contrary to the current automatic transmissions at the end. In order to adjust this deficiency, the new eight-stage self switch of ZF, Friedrichshafen already works in the PAS. That puts torque up to 850 Nm away and has an integrated asynchronous operation function. Finally also Sprit could become soon the luxury property
