BMW has unveiled the 2 Series Active Tourer xDrive – the latest iteration of the model that features with the intelligent four-wheel drive system BMW xDrive. BMW first used the xDrive in the BMW X3 and the X5 around a decade ago and is now making the four-wheel drive system available in a number of models and series.
This system does not only better traction and stability but is also always aligned to each vehicle concept, thus paving way to high degree of functionality and improved cornering dynamics as well as keeping the fuel consumption and emission levels of four-wheel drive vehicles as low as possible.
The 2 Series Active Tourer is the latest example of model-specific alignment of the four-wheel drive system. But unlike previous variants, BMW xDrive for the first time is grounded on a front-wheel drive concept with transversally installed engines.
The Active Tourer is available with a new range of modularly constructed three- and four-cylinder engines – featuring state-of-the-art TwinPower Turbo technology – provides dynamic driving while returning outstanding efficiency.
New 2-Series variants laden with xDrive technology include the BMW 225i xDrive Active Tourer with combined fuel consumption figure of 6.5-6.4 l/100 km and combined carbon dioxide emission number of 152-148 g/km; and the the BMW 220d xDrive Active Tourer with combined fuel consumption figure of 4.8-4.6 l/100km and combined carbon dioxide emission rate of 127-122 g/km.
Both models feature BMW xDrive as standard with engines mated with the 8-speed Steptronic gearbox.
