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 main reason for selecting M Sport is that you get a sporty bodykit, big wheels and some sporty touches inside. Expensive for not a lot of useful equipment over SE.

While this 2.0-litre diesel isn’t much more expensive than the 216d, it’s far gutsier and barely any less efficient. Refinement isn't quite on the same level as a Volkswagen Touran SV 2.0 TDI, but it’s still good, making this model our pick.
