From their launch in 2014, the BMW 2 Series Active Tourer and BMW 2 Series Gran Tourer have brought driving dynamics, premium materials and generous space in compact dimensions to the MPV sector. And with the BMW 2 Series iPerformance Active Tourer, there’s a vehicle that combines all of the above with outstandingly low emissions.


The BMW 2 Series Active Tourer is proof that compact dimensions, functionality and practicality can be combined perfectly with a dynamic design. The long wheelbase with short overhangs, front-wheel drive and high roofline create a spacious interior, while the raised seating position gives everyone a great view and makes it easier to get in and out of the vehicle.
BMW TwinPower Turbo engines - three petrol and three diesel - all deliver excellent efficiencies, with up to 72.4 - 73.4mpg on the combined cycle, and CO2 emissions as low as 99 -104 g/km. A five-star rating by NCAP, six airbags, Performance Control and tyre pressure monitoring across the range ensure that you are always in safe hands. For the ultimate peace of mind there’s an all-wheel drive model, offering extra grip in slippery conditions, whether you’re crossing a damp campsite or travelling down a rain-soaked motorway.
Above all, the BMW 2 Series Active Tourer drives like a BMW. Its range of features such as a head-up display, DAB radio, sport steering wheel and rear park distance control, plus BMW’s legendary build quality mark it out as a driver’s car that excels in moving the family.


Whether you’re transporting people, bulky items, or both, the BMW 2 Series Gran Tourer does it with style and ease. From the adaptable rear seats to the spacious luggage compartment, which can be transformed into two extra seats, it has the carrying flexibility for every occasion, yet it always gives a rewarding drive.
Compartments under all front and rear seats and armrests are supplemented by footwell nets and dashboard storage. And to minimise spillages, cups and and bottles sit happily in a variety of easy-to-reach holders. When you’ve got more people than bags, there’s a third row of seats hidden below the boot floor. Even with these in place there’s 145 litres of space.
When you don’t need the third row of seats this increases to between 560 - 720 litres, as the second row of sets has 130mm of movement for more legroom or a bigger boot. They also split 40:20:40 for folding, and for very long items, the front passenger seat also folds, provided electric seat adjustment has not been specified. Fold all the seats down and there’s 1,820 litres of space, while no lip and hands-free boot opening make loading easy.


Take the BMW 2 Series Active Tourer and add an electric motor and battery pack. Coupling an efficient BMW TwinPower Turbo three-cylinder petrol engine to power the front wheels, and using BMW iPerformance technology to power the rear creates a compact MPV that will sprint from 0-62mph in 6.7 seconds. Yet when under electric power, it produces no emissions at all at the point of use.
Charging is simple – the supplied cable will plug into any household power socket, and while out and about there’s the option of using one of the thousands of public charging points via the public charging cable accessory. A flap on the front wing hides the electrical charging socket, which has an LED ring that changes colour to display the charging status.
Beyond this, the ‘xe’ designation on the boot and the subtle BMW iPerformance logos on the side, the BMW 2 Series iPerformance Active Tourer is indistinguishable from the traditionally powered versions. Inside, the batteries are stored under the rear seat to maximise boot space, and there’s an eDRIVE button to choose the appropriate driving mode, but everything else remains the same: the same clever use of space, and the same attention to detail that marks the BMW 2 Series Active Tourer as the MPV with a dynamic drive.
