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

Sport models aren’t massively more expensive and do add useful features such as a sliding rear bench, automatic tailgate and sports front seats. Factor in 17in wheels and it could be worth considering if you like its looks.

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.
