Behold! The new BMW 2 Series Active Tourer is arriving, signaling an era for the German carmaker in which it offers front wheel-drive and three cylinder engines. The Active Tourer -- BMW’s follow-up as the newest member of the BMW 2 Series range – could be powered with either an all-new three-cylinder engine or a four-cylinder one.

The power from the engine will be transmitted to the wheels by BMW’s front-wheel-drive system. BMW will soon offer an all-wheel-drive xDrive system later this year. Active Tourer is a well-packaged material that merges dynamism, style and elegance as well as practicality. The new BMW 2 Series Active Tourer boasts of extensive connectivity provided by BMW ConnectedDrive.

With dimensions of 4,342mm (length), 1,555mm (height) and 1,800mm (width), the new BMW 2 Series Active Tourer is roomy enough for five passengers and spacious enough to hold 1,510 liters of luggage with the rear seats folded down – making it suitable and perfect to the increasing challenges of urban mobility.

While the BMW 2 Series Active Tourer is practical and versatile, it is also elegantly style. For instance, it features low-rise double kidney grille typically found only on BMW coupés. It also gains a sporty look thanks to its raked windscreen and defined and sculpted bonnet.

While it still features classic BMW styling cues, the BMW 2 Series Active Tourer gives off an athletic appearance thanks to its wedge profile, L-shaped rear lights, crisp contours and swage lines.

Its vertical air-deflecting aeroblades on either side of the rear window as well as a rear spoiler do not only make the Active Tourer stylish, but aerodynamically efficient. With a rear windscreen wiper hidden inside the rear spoiler, the new BMW 218i Active Tourer features a drag coefficient of just 0.26.

The 2015 BMW 218i SE starts at 22,150 GBP, while the diesel-powered BMW 218d costs 24,205 GBP.
