2014 Geneva Motor Show LIVE: BMW 2-Series Active Tourer

The brand new BMW 2-Series Active Tourer has recently made its public debut during the 2014 Geneva Motor Show, in a world premiere.

The first public appearance of the BMW 2-Series Active Tourer took place in Geneva, as the car manufacturer has officially pulled the wraps off its body. The model in question marks two records for BMW, as this is its first front-wheel drive car and also its first MPV. The 2-Series Active Tourer is similar to the Ford B-Max, with its angular rear and its sweptback headlights and it’s based along the new MINI, being slightly longer than the 1-Series.

The German MPV will come with a five-seat version at its launch, but eventually the company will add two more seats to it, next year. The BMW 2-Series Active Tourer has a flat loading floor, a 468 / 1,510 liter of boot storage and it has split rear seats which will help its owners carry large objects, up to two meters in length. Besides the entry-level, the model will come in the SE, in the Sport, the Luxury and the M Sport trim levels, even if the latter will become available in 2015.

As far as the engine lineup goes, the BMW 2-Series Active Tourer will be offered as a 218i, with a 3-cylinder petrol burner developing 136 HP and 220 Nm of torque, a 225i xDrive with a 2.0 liter petrol engine, producing 170 HP, a 218d Active Tourer with a turbocharged common rail diesel, generating 150 HP and 330 Nm of torque and that’s about all. In November, 2014, BMW will add the 220i, the 216d, the 220d and the 220d xDrive.
