... Drive systems Within the volume and cost cutting objectives, the platform sharing is logical between the MINI brand and the compact BMW models. This first BMW with front-wheel drive is also the first BMW to be available with the – also known at MINI – three-cylinder gasoline (petrol) engine.

That is why BMW group developed for both cross-model (within the same brand) and cross-brand (BMW and MINI) platform sharing between its small and compact car models, two architectures, one for future four-wheel and rear-wheel drive models and another, on which the 2 Series Active Tourer is based, for cross-brand (BMW and MINI) front- and four-wheel drive.

The suspension of the newly developed chassis comprises a single-joint spring strut axle at the front and a multi-link rear axle. The steering system is electromechanical.

With the BMW EfficientDynamics system, the 2 Series Active Tourer includes the Auto Start Stop function, Brake Energy Regeneration, Optimum Gearshift Indicator, on-demand operation of ancillary units and the integral Air Curtain, which uses two vertical air inlets in the front bumper to direct the airstream along the front wheels (to reduce aerodynamic drag and fuel consumption), as well as the use of high-tensile and ultra-high-tensile multi-phase steels to keep weight down while providing the necessary body rigidity for dynamic handling.
