The model in question is basically the production version of the Concept Active Tourer and it’s a front-wheel drive vehicle, measuring 4,342 mm in length, 1,800 mm in width and 1,555 mm in height, with a 2,670 mm long wheelbase. The BMW 2-Series Active Tourer is adding, with the Sport Line package, special air intakes, high gloss black accents, 16-inch or 17-inch alloy wheels, high gloss black trim, sport seats, contrast stitching and others.

Chose the Luxury Line and you will be getting the 16-inch or 17-inch alloy wheels, the high gloss chrome front grille, the special seat upholstery, leather wrapped steering wheel and some chrome accents. The M Sport package will be adding the 17-inch or 18-inch light alloy wheels, the sport tuned suspension system, which is reducing the ride height by 10 mm, the high gloss black grille, the aerodynamic body kit, M-branded door sill plates, special upholstered sport seats, M leather steering wheels and much more.

BMW says that the new 2-Series Active Tourer will be hitting the market with three different engines, in the 218i, 225i and 218d forms. The cheapest model, the 218i, will be getting a 1.5 liter three-cylinder petrol engine under its hood, with 136 HP (100 kW), 220 Nm (162 lb-ft) of torque or 230 Nm (169 lb-ft) with overboost.
