The desirable BMW 2 Series Active Tourer possesses stylish good looks and boasts an upscale interior. This compact MPV is also very good to drive, and comes with a range of efficient engine options. Choose from BMW SE, BMW Sport, BMW Luxury and BMW 2 Series M Sport trim levels.
The BMW 2 Series Active Tourer offers upmarket family practicality and features a sumptuous cabin that delivers a supremely comfortable ride. There’s plenty of room for four adults, or a young family of five – and 40/20/40 electronically split-folding rear seats provide a great deal of flexibility. These rearmost positions drop quickly and without fuss, expanding a 468-litre cargo space to as much as 1,510 litres – and an adjustable boot floor makes it simple to discreetly stow valuables.
In addition to standard features such as automatic dual-zone air conditioning and front and rear power-operated windows, the vehicle includes a six-speaker sound system. Featuring DAB radio and an MP3-compatible CD player, this can easily, and safely, be operated via the car’s leather-wrapped multifunction steering wheel. A wide range of media inputs feature too, including Bluetooth connectivity that enables audio streaming and hands-free telephony. Another standard inclusion is a BMW Navigation System, which is accessed via a minimum-size 6.5-inch touchscreen.
This Euro NCAP five-star-rated vehicle comes with an array of driver aids, such as Active Guard and Park Distance Control. The former comprises a collision warning system, and automatically applies braking pressure if potential impact at speed of up to 30mph is detected. The latter, meanwhile, utilises ultrasound sensors, making entering or leaving the smallest of parking spaces as straightforward as can be.
This MPV’s rakish five-door body is at once stylish and practical. For instance, 16-inch V-spoke-design alloy wheels are eye-catching and efficiency enhancing. The famous BMW kidney grille is present and correct, complete with striking vertical slats that are finished in black. The car’s bodywork possesses subtle contours and creases, most noticeably on the bonnet and along the flanks. The rear of the vehicle is no less arresting with, for example, chrome-finished tailpipes, while an automatic tailgate ensures that access to the boot is always a breeze. Exterior lighting includes LED daytime running lights and front fog lamps that provide maximum illumination when it’s needed most.
A standard-issue BMW 218i petrol engine manages up to 55.4mpg, while producing CO2 emissions from 55.4mpg. It also delivers 220Nm of torque and 0-60mph in a little over nine seconds, and is, therefore, a great choice when it comes to balancing efficiency and performance. All models feature Drive Performance Control, with ECO PRO, Comfort and Sport modes, allowing the driver to choose the one that best suits the prevailing driving conditions.
