2018 BMW 2 Series Active Tourer gets subtle facelift, now offered with 7-speed, dual-clutch Steptronic gearbox

BMW’s 2 Series Active Tourer finally gets its first ever mid-cycle update, and if we could describe the facelift in one word, we would say that it was very “discreet”. This minivan isn’t just the first for BMW, but it also marks their first attempt to do a front wheel drive too.

Both variants, namely the five seater 2 Series Active Tourer, as well as the seven seat Gran Tourer, will be getting the new paint scheme of Jucaro Beige and Sunset Orange, together with the six new options for alloy wheels that vary in size from 17 to 19 inches.

When looking at it from the outside, the changes are very hard to see, which is why we are going to point them out for you. First, the LED headlights have a more hexagonal shape like the new BMW models, while the rear features light emitting diodes that exhibit different graphics. The kidney grille, single-piece air intake, and LED fog lamps are also new here.

BMW unveils the 2-Series xDrive Active Tourer

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.

BMW would wait at least 15 months before it would launch the new 2-series Active Tourer in the United States as it executives don’t believe that the five-door wagon won’t be a hit in the country. BMW unveiled the fwd 2-series Active Tourer at the Geneva Motor Show and will start selling it in September in Europe.

Frank Niederlaender, head of product management for BMW lower-series vehicles, remarked that U.S. consumers don't prefer hatchbacks. He noted that while the new 2-series Active Tourer has space that US consumers want, it not enough to appeal to them. "We have to find the right timing," Niederlaender said.

BMW waited for around three years before it launched the X1 crossover in the US because of its small size. The X1, however, has exceeded expectations, with 26,512 sold in the US in 2013, about 10,000 more than planned.

BMW has presented a new Concept Active Tourer, which is the first to arrive from a range of front-drive entry-level BMWs that has long been mooted. This is tantamount to BMW’s decision to forget about its tradition of longitudinally mounted engines and rear-wheel drive. At the Paris motor show, BMW unveiled the five-door hatchback, a plug-in hybrid with four-wheel drive.

The front wheels are driven by a transversely mounted engine. This implies that entry-level BMWs from the new small car line-up will have front-wheel drive. Meanwhile, an electric motor is powering the rear wheels.

The platform is referred to as UKL1; it will be used in two wheelbase lengths both for the next-generation Mini line-up and the new range of entry-level BMWs to enter the 1-series line-up starting in late 2013. BMW is depending on this range to boost BMW’s annual sales volumes to two million by 2020.

For this year’s Paris Motor Show, Bmw decided to abandon its tradition of longitudinally mounted engines and rear-wheel drive in favor of a new range of front-drive entry-level models: this is the Concept Active Tourer. According to the official press release, this is a plug-in hybrid with four-wheel drive and has a transversely mounted engine that drives the front wheels, while the rear wheels are powered by an electric motor.

Dubbed UKL1, the platform used by the Concept Active Tourer will also be used on two wheelbase lengths by the next-generation MINI but also by the entry-level models that will join the Bmw 1-Series lineup in late 2013. With these new models, Bmw expects to boost its annual sales volumes to 2 million by 2020.

The new range will include an MPV (previewed by the Concept Active Tourer) but also a rival to the Mercedes-Benz B-Class and the new Volkswagen Golf Plus. The new Concept Active Tourer also introduces Bmw’s new 1.5-liter three-cylinder direct injection petrol engine, same that will be used in the i8 sports car. Still, this engine is teamed up with the electric motor that powers the rear axle. With a system output of over 190 hp, the Concept Active Tourer accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in less than 8 seconds, while the maximum speed achieved is around 200 km/h or 124 mph.
