The Multi-Purpose Vehicle (MPV) was designed to be the epitome of practical family motoring. It’s a car that offers plenty of space, with some models also having the option of transporting seven people, with practicality put first. But at BMW we believe a car should also be rewarding to drive and have a sporty appearance. That it should fit into your life without compromising on style. Welcome to the BMW 2 Series Active and Gran Tourer models, MPVs with style.
The BMW 2 Series Active and Gran Tourer models also offer a 4x4 option. And for those with an eye to emissions and running costs there’s the BMW 2 Series iPerformance Active Tourer. This plug-in hybrid has batteries and an electric motor for an electric emissions-free range of up to 25 miles, yet still drives like a BMW.


MPV, people carrier or minivan? Are they the same thing, or does each have distinctive attributes? We explain. 


BMW 2 Series Active Tourer, BMW 2 Series Gran Tourer and BMW 2 Series iPerformance Active Tourer. Designed for the family, engineered for the driver. 


An MPV is all about practicality. Space, seats and features to keep passengers entertained are all important, as is an economical range of engines.
