Review

The BMW 2 Series Active Tourer is spacious, well finished and good to drive, if a little expensive

get the best price

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

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 Golf SV 2.0 TDI, but it’s still good, making this model our pick.
