The new BMW 2-Series Active Tourer features large grille nostrils from the new X3 and X5 crossovers.
BMW has unveiled the second generation BMW 2-Series Active Tourer compact MPV. Car sales in Europe will begin in February 2022. After the generation change, the compact van has changed significantly in appearance. BMW 2-Series Active Tourer received large “nostrils” of the radiator grille, like the restyled X3. Also, the car was equipped with narrow LED headlights (adaptive matrix optics are available for a surcharge).
Compared to its predecessor, the new product has added a little in overall dimensions. So, the length of the car is 4386 mm (+32 mm), and the width is 1824 mm (+24 mm). The wheelbase remained unchanged at 2,670 millimeters.
The drag coefficient is 0.26. The luggage compartment of the new compact van is 470 liters. In the interior of the BMW 2-Series Active Tourer, a large curved screen was installed that combines the digital dashboard and the display of the multimedia system. A similar scheme is used by the BMW iX electric car.
In addition, the compact van received new seats with leather upholstery (optional massage function is available), four USB-C ports, dual-zone climate control and wireless charging for a smartphone. For a surcharge, customers will be offered a panoramic roof and a Harman / Kardon audio system. The driver has access to cruise control with Stop & Go function, automatic high-beam control system, blind spot monitoring system, rear view camera and lane keep function.
The range of engines includes a 1.5-liter gasoline turbo engine with 136 horsepower. Acceleration to a hundred in a compact van with such a unit takes nine seconds. The maximum speed is 214 km / h. Also, customers will be offered two modifications “i” with “mild hybrid” technology (the motor works in conjunction with the starter-generator). The power of the 220i and 223i versions is 170 and 218 horsepower. Acceleration to 100 km / h takes these modifications 8.1 and 7 seconds, respectively.
The new BMW 2-Series Active Tourer will be available with a 2.0-liter diesel engine producing 150 horsepower. Later, a full-fledged hybrid modification with an all-wheel drive system will be presented.
