With the local launch of the new front-wheel drive BMW 2 Series Active
Tourer, BMW has entered another model into the premium compact class.
Using an entirely new architecture designed to maximise interior space in a compact package which is also used by the
Mini brand, the new BMW 2 Series Active Tourer is a new vehicle for the brand that may potentially appeal to new BMW
In addition to its functionality, the 2 Series Active Tourer is a true BMW with its inherent performance, efficiency
and driving pleasure supplied by a choice of four new generation TwinPower Turbo engines and a chassis design that
delivers an engaging driving experience.
With a body measuring 4,342mm in length, 1,800mm in width and 1,555mm in height, the 2 Series Active Tourer is at home
in an urban environment while maintaining a distinctive aesthetic that stands out from the crowd.
The exterior design combines trademark BMW styling cues – the slightly forward slanting wide kidney grille, twin
circular headlights, short front and rear overhangs and L-shaped tail lights – which, together with a sculpted bonnet,
crisp contours and high tapering roofline that finishes in a neatly integrated hatch top spoiler, help to make a car with
a particularly dynamic road presence.
Further design distinction for both the exterior and interior is offered with Sport Line - standard on 218i, 218d and
220i models - and Luxury Line (standard on 225i) trim and highlight packages.
Inside, the contemporary design theme continues with the broad layered styling of the instrument panel and door
panels, large glass areas, and elevated seating providing a light, airy and spacious feel.

seat base is able to slide fore and aft through 130mm, providing either greater rear legroom or increased luggage space,
