Review

The BMW 2 Series Gran Tourer has frugal engines, but there are far more spacious MPVs for the money

get the best price

M Sport cars get the biggest (18in) alloy wheels of the range, stiffer M Sport suspension, a sports steering wheel, sport seats, run flat tyres, leather seats, different headlining and M Sport styling touches inside and out. It’s expensive to buy and doesn’t ride as well as SE trim, so we’d avoid it.

An extra cylinder over the 216d, with more power and torque as a result. The premium is relatively small so we'd recommend the 218d if you're likely to carry a few people regularly. Even so, company car drivers may be tempted by the lower CO2 emissions of the smaller diesel.
