BMW 2 Series Active Tourer 2018 review
New engines, gearboxes and looks spruce up the BMW 2 Series Active Tourer for 2018
In case you’d forgotten about it in the haze of SUVs, the 2 Series Active Tourer is BMW’s take on the MPV. Like its bigger brother, the 2 Series Gran Tourer, 2018 sees a number of revisions to keep it fresh. Given that the UK is the third biggest market for it, we should probably sit up and take notice.The most noticeable changes are more aggressive front and rear bumpers, larger exhaust tips (one for three-pot models, a pair for fours), plus the inevitable new colours and alloy wheels. Under the skin, the old auto ‘boxes are replaced with a seven-speed dual-clutch on all but the 220d, which gets an eight-speed torque converter.There are refreshed engines that have been tweaked for the new WLTP testing regimes. Petrol engines gain up to 7bhp and 7Ib ft of torque, while diesel outputs are unchanged.
