Refresh for BMW 2 Series Tourer and Active Tourer

The 2 Series Active Tourer / Gran Tourer fitted with the optional M Sport Package has been revised accordingly. The new versions will go on sale starting this March.

BMW will launch the minivans in Europe in March after selling more than 380,000 units of the pre-facelift models between 2014 and 2017. The conquest rate is also extremely high, with more than 70 per cent of customers new to the BMW brand.

The usual facelift titivations apply, with a new front end created to look wider with its single piece air intake and updated kidney grille, tweaked back end with bigger exhaust pipes (and twin ones on four-cylinder cars) and a couple of new colours - Jucaro Beige and Sunset Orange. A new bumper with larger exhaust outlets rounds off the look at the rear.

BMW has given the 2 Series Active Tourer range an update, with both standard and Grand models receiving design tweaks and new technology.

Six new alloy wheels designs in 17, 18 and 19in format have been introduced, as well as two new colour options: Jucaro Beige and Sunset Orange. Exclusive materials and new seat covers in cloth/Sensatec and leather are now available for the interior along with a new electronic gear selector lever.

These engine tweaks increase power in the petrol engines by up to 7bhp and torque by up to 7lb ft, while fuel efficiency has increased by around 5%. All engines have been improved, with the diesel range now boasting exhaust gas treatment technology with AdBlue injection. Every diesel engine now uses twin turbochargers. Alongside you'll find an eight-speed Steptronic transmission and six-speed manual.

In addition, the latest and greatest iDrive will be installed in the minivan duo and buyers will be able to pick from either a 6.5- or 8.8-inch touchscreen, complete with voice control.
