... Size By its size, shape, equipment and price (from €27,200 in Germany), the new BMW 2 Series Active Tourer is targeted to the premium layer of the MPV / high break category (or variant), still within the compact size class, also known in some markets as the lower medium (M1 in France) or C-segment.

The main dimensions of 4,342 millimeters in length, 1,800 millimeters width, the 2,670 millimeters wheelbase and a good 1,555 millimeters height allow for a reasonable interior volume in the category.

As in the other MPV and crossover models, the new BMW offers a higher seating position than a compact sedan or hatchback for the driver and the other occupants alike.

The luggage volume can be enlarged from 468 litres (16.53 cu-ft.) with all seats up in a five passenger configuration, to 1,510 litres (53.3 vu-ft.) with the rear seats folded down.

With the standard 40:20:40 split-folding rear backrest and its sliding positions, an optional fold-flat passenger seat backrest can add to the interior flexible features.

The sliding rear seat allows to increase either rear legroom or load compartment capacity. A foldable boot floor covers a storage compartment with a multifunction tray.

In addition to the sliding rear seat, the rear backrest also can be adjusted as an option to offer either added comfort for the three rear seats or to enlarge the luggage space.

With these elements combined, the MINI brand offerings (owned by BMW) and the BMW 1 and 2 Series, the new 2 Series Active Tourer does extend BMW's reach in the small and compact car segments.

According to the German brand, around 70 per cent of the first-generation BMW 1 Series cars were sold to customers totally new to the white-and-blue turbine circle.

Beyond the conquest sales, the new Active Tourer adds another bridge to keep these new customers for later upgrades from the MINI, BMW 1 and 2 Series, to the larger, midsize BMW 3 Series at a later stage, and so on – bearing in mind that the upgrade margin can stretch as far as the... Rolls Royce brand (owned by BMW), for those who can shoot that far...
