The 2 Series Active Tourer marked quite a change for German manufacturer BMW. Marketed as part of the 2 Series line-up, the Active Tourer debuted at the 2014 Geneva International Motor Show and was BMW's first offering to the multi-purpose vehicle (MPV) market. Furthermore, BMW have strayed from one of their hallmark traits by offering the Active Tourer solely in front-wheel drive. The Active Tourer is offered in a five-seat configuration and shares many of its mechanical components with the BMW-owned MINI Countryman. The Active Tourer was designed to actively compete with the Mercedes-Benz B-Class, while market competition also includes models like the Ford C-MAX and VW Golf SV.
At launch the Active Tourer was offered with a range of petrol and diesel engines, with a plug-in hybrid subsequently added to the range. The entry-level 134bhp 1.5-litre three-cylinder turbocharged 218i petrol unit is shared with the MINI Cooper, which manages the 0-62mph sprint in 9.3 seconds. The other choice for petrol buyers is a 2.0-litre unit available in either 189bhp or 228bhp states of tune. The best-seller is the 148bhp 2.0-litre turbocharged diesel, which offers an optimum blend of performance and efficiency. This unit is also available in a lower-powered 114bhp output dubbed 216d. This latter unit is the most economical of the range, returning 74.3mpg and emitting just 99g/km of CO2. Engines are mated to one of three gearboxes, and are front-wheel drive as standard.
SE, Sport, Luxury and M Sport make up the trim levels on offer in the Active Tourer, with a number of optional accessories packs also on offer to configure the car to personal requirements. The Active Tourer comes fantastically equipped regardless of trim however, with base SE models featuring a 6.5-inch infotainment system, Bluetooth, USB connectivity, automatic tailgate, dual-zone climate control, rear parking sensors, alloy wheels and much more as standard. Boot capacity is a generous 468 litres and the Active Tourer was awarded the maximum five-star rating when crash tested by Euro NCAP in 2015, making it both safe and practical.
Though BMW has strayed from tradition, the 2 Series Active Tourer has been a resounding success. It is a great family option, offering a generous selection of efficient engines and fantastic levels of space.
