What used BMW 2 Series estate will I get for my budget?
Thanks to a huge choice of engines, power outputs and even a hybrid option, there will be a BMW 2-Series Active Tourer to suit most pockets.
High-mileage BMW 218d SE models begin around £10,000. However, if you up the budget to £13,500-£14,000, you can find the same model with 20-30,000 miles .
The next models are the 218d, with road tax of £20 and a claimed 68.9mpg, and the 218i, at £30 and 55.4mpg. The most expensive Active Tourers to run are the 220d xDrive (£115 and 64.2mpg), and the 225i xDrive (£190 and 44.1mpg). Both of these offer four-wheel drive, which makes them considerably more expensive to run than their front-wheel drive siblings. BMW recognised this and does offer the 220d in front-wheel-drive form. This cuts road tax to £30 and it should do seven more miles to the gallon, at 64.2mpg.
