The BMW 2 Series Gran Tourer has frugal engines, but there are far more spacious MPVs for the moneyread the full model review
This is the trim to go for, given it’s so generously equipped. It features 16in alloy wheels, climate control, keyless start, a DAB radio, sat-nav, Bluetooth and rear parking sensors.
Entry-level petrol is smooth and quiet while providing all the power you’ll need. It has to be worked reasonably hard to access its power, though, and because this is an MPV, we’d choose diesel.
