The interior layout, fit and finish
Driving position and dashboard
You won’t struggle to get comfortable behind the wheel of the BMW 2 Series Active Tourer because all models having plenty of adjustment for the driving position and steering wheel. The seats are designed to be like the ones in sportier BMW models, and are comfortable with plenty of support. Disappointingly, adjustable lumbar support is a cost option on all trim levels.
On the inside, the 2 Series Active Tourer has taken its design and technology straight from the BMW iX so you won't find many physical buttons. Instead, most functions, including the climate control, are set using the large curved screen that combines a 10.25in driver display with a 10.7in infotainment system.
It’s better news when you look over your shoulder, and you’ll never struggle to get a good view whenever you need to check your blind-spot. Thanks to the large rear window, you won’t struggle to park, and it’s made even easier by front and rear parking sensors, a rear-view camera and the standard-fit parking assistant, which will parallel park the car for you.
You’ll be able to see plenty when you head out for a night drive because automatic LED headlights are standard across the range. If you opt for the Technology pack (which is standard on the M Sport), you’ll upgrade those to matrix headlights that allow you to leave full beam on all the time without dazzling oncoming drivers.
Sat nav and infotainment
The 2 Series Active Tourer’s 10.7in infotainment touchscreen has built-in sat-nav, DAB radio and Android Auto/Apple CarPlay smartphone mirroring. It’s the same as the system fitted to the BMW iX, with the same pin-sharp graphics and near-instant reaction to your prods and swipes.
