The Vision Next 100 concept combines coupe-like sportiness with the conventional styling of a sedan, but BMW is quick to point out that it is not just any boring sedan. The Vision Next 100 concept is highly customizable to suit the driver’s changing needs.

Driver-vehicle interactions are managed by Alive Geometry; Boost and Ease modes offer a choice of driver-controlled or vehicle-controlled operations, and the interior of the vehicle changes to suit the mode of travel.

In Boost, the entire vehicle focuses on the driver, to maximize the driving experience – for instance by indicating the ideal driving line, steering point and speed. Ease mode sees the interior transform: the steering wheel and center console retract; the headrests turn to the side, and the seats and door trim merge to form a single unit so that the driver and front-seat passenger can turn towards each other.
