The BMW 2 Series Active Tourer is a spacious MPV with a robust, high-quality interior. What’s more, it’s good to drive and offers impressive engines (including two plug-in hybrid options). If you’re looking for an alternative to the plethora of small SUVs out there but don’t want an MPV that looks like a box, the 2 Series Active Tourer might be the car for you.
