What Car? says...
The BMW 2 Series Active Tourer and other MPVs have been suffering at the hands of SUVs in recent years. In fact, while people carriers used to be the high-rise wagon of choice for families, most now go for something that looks a bit more like an off-roader.
To that end, manufacturers have been focusing on creating SUVs that fit all niches and have taken their eyes off the MPV ball. BMW hasn’t. Instead, it’s looking to tempt families out of small SUVs with its own sporty-looking MPV, the 2 Series Active Tourer.
Over the next few pages of this review, we’ll tell you what the BMW 2 Series Active Tourer is like inside and on the road, plus which engine and trim combination we recommend. (We have full reviews of the BMW 2 Series Coupé and BMW 2 Series Gran Coupé too.)
If you decide it’s the best MPV option for you – or, indeed, if you're in the market for a vehicle of any make and model – our free What Car? New Car Buying service can help you make big savings on this car and hundreds of others. It has some attractive BMW 2 Series Active Tourer deals.
