BMW Sports Activity Series

sports activity vehicle and coupe series is a marketing description by BMW to describe a line of vehicles that traditionally were in the crossover Sport Utility Vehicle (SUV) class.
Unlike traditional SUVs which are derived from the body-on-frame construction of light trucks, vehicles in the sports activity family are crossovers that are based upon unibody car platforms. BMW emphasized their sports-car like on-road ability, helping to distinguish this new series from others. The sports activity nomenclatures are indicative of the reality that for the most part, the vehicles are more "activity" based than "utility". The sports activity family of BMW automobiles are grouped by their X-series branding.
The first official BMW to carry to sports activity series nomenclature was the 1999 BMW X5 as a Sports Activity Vehicle (SAV) which debuted at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit
BMW expanded the sports activity series with the introduction of the X6 Sports Activity Coupe (SAC). BMW described the coupe nomenclature as result of combining the sporting elegance of a BMW coupe with the striking DNA of BMW X and the vision of a BMW sedan. This third member of the sports activity series of vehicles also served as a first for BMW, their first official crossover vehicle.
