How it copes with people and clutter

Front space

There’s masses of room up front in the BMW 2 Series Active Tourer, so even very tall drivers will have plenty of space in the high-roofed interior. There’s lots of headroom and the generous width means the driver won’t end up rubbing shoulders with their passenger. 

The removal of the iDrive controller and large gear selector has opened up plenty of space, so you have a number of areas to store all your bits and bobs. On top of the usual, such as door bins and a glovebox, you get a large storage area under the floating central armrest and a Tesla-esque area in front of the cupholders to store your phone in an upright position. That’s also where you can charge your phone wirelessly if you opt for M Sport trim or the optional Technology pack.

You won’t find as many storage spaces in the rear as you get in the front, but if you fold down the standard centre rear armrest, passengers will have a couple of cup holders to store drinks. The door pockets are moulded to offer convenient bottle storage and you get map pockets on the back of the front seats as standard.

Access is very good, with the high roofline making it easy to duck in for access to child seats.

Seat folding and flexibility

The 2 Series Active Tourer may be a little behind the Touran for outright passenger space, but it’s better for flexibility. All variants come with rear seats that slide in a 60/40 split, so you can prioritise rear legroom or boot space, depending on your needs. On top of that, they can be folded totally flat in a versatile 40/20/40 split.
