Review

The BMW 2 Series Active Tourer is a spacious MPV with a robust high-quality interior that includes the best infotainment system in the class. It’s good to drive, too, with a broad range of impressive engines and decent plug-in hybrid option. You’ll pay a lot for one, though, even if you stick to the less powerful engines in cheaper trims.

get the best price

The entry point to the range gets plenty of kit, including dual-zone climate control, a multi-function steering wheel, 16in alloy wheels, front and rear parking sensors, and automatic lights and wipers as standard. Add a couple of options and it’s all you really need.

We haven’t driven this entry-level three-cylinder diesel, but the performance figures suggest it’ll struggle with a heavy load on board. On the plus side, it’s the second most efficient engine in the range (after the plug-in hybrid).
