Think of any of its recent high-profile new models, such as the BMW iX, BMW 1 Series, BMW 4 Series or recently revealed BMW 7 Series, and today’s BMW might not strike you as a company that is particularly nostalgic, or one that cares much about its heritage.
All the typical BMW hallmarks – a long bonnet, rear-wheel drive, subtle kidney grilles, the Hofmeister kink – have been either ditched or substantially reinterpreted.
For years, BMWs have had quad headlights, or at least the suggestion thereof. The 2 Series Coupé goes with a single headlight either side, referencing the 02 of the 1960s. Kidney grilles are modestly sized and close when the engine doesn’t need cooling.
