Advice for buyers

What should I look for in a used BMW 2 Series estate?

Being a family car, the interior of the BMW 2-Series Active Tourer could have been given a hard time, so check that there are no stains or wear of the upholstery caused by child seats. Check that lids to storage bins work as they should and that the seats still slide forwards and backwards. Inspect top of the rear bumper, too, which may have been scratched by items being dragged in and out of the boot.

Also, check the alloy wheels for scrapes and grazes caused by drivers who park too close to kerbs, possibly as they off-load their offspring.

Of the surveys collated, one mentioned problems with the engine, one with the drivetrain and one was a fault with the infotainment system. That's a good result considering the numbers of Active Tourers on the roads. As with all used purchases, you should check all of these areas before committing to buy.

In our most recent What Car? Reliability Survey, BMW as a brand finished in 13th place out of 30 brands. The 2 Series Active Tourer finished in first place in the MPV class out of nine cars.
