BMW 2 Series Active Tourer review

Published: 08 Mar 2022


What should I be paying?

Good on BMW for making the process of speccing its cars a heck of a lot easier to decipher. There’s a standard Sport trim grade, replete with 17-inch wheels, LED lights, standard DCT gearbox, the twin digital displays in the dashboard and a reversing camera with parking sensors. 

Starting at just over £32,000, Luxury modes add leather seats (heated up front), more aluminium trim and wood inside. M Sport starts at £34,000 and that gets you 18-inch rims, the rather brash body kit, adaptive headlights for auto main-bean functionality, keyless entry, wireless phone charging and adaptive suspension.

Then there’s a smattering of ‘packs’ to add tech, driving assistance functions and extra lux features, and only a handful of individual options. Should help residuals too, as it’ll be easier to find the car you want second-hand, with fewer permutations of spec to sift through.
