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.
The trimSee full equipment
Luxury cars add plusher trim pieces, 17in wheels, a sliding rear bench and electric folding rear seats over SE. You also get leather seats, which are nice but do push the price up over similarly specced Sport models.
The engineSee full engine specs
This plug-in hybrid option gets a claimed 33-mile electric range (but expect something more like 25 miles in real-world driving conditions), and if you do mainly short journeys you’ll really appreciate the cheap running costs. It’s the quickest engine in the line-up and switches between electric and fuel power pretty smoothly, but the ride is pretty firm, in part due to the additional weight of the battery pack. It’s also very expensive. Plus, as with every plug-in hybrid, if you do long journeys or don’t regularly top the battery up, the fuel economy will be significantly worse than you’d hope.
