BMW 2 Series Active Tourer MPV - Reliability & safety
The 2 Series Active Tourer shares many of its parts with other BMWs
The latest version of the BMW 2 Series Active Tourer MPV has only recently hit the road, so it’ll be a little while before we can gather information on how reliable it is. But initial signs are promising, considering that the 2 Series is loosely based on the BMW 1 Series hatchback. The 1 Series boasts good safety and owner satisfaction data, so hopefully the 2 Series Active Tourer will follow suit.
BMW 2 Series Active Tourer reliability
In our 2021 Driver Power owner satisfaction survey, the BMW 1 Series finished in 46th position in our rundown of the top 75 cars on sale. Reliability was given a fairly high rating, and buyers also praised its infotainment system, handling and build quality. However, the BMW X1 was rated far worse in 74th. We’ll have to wait to see how the 2 Series Active Tourer’s new infotainment screen is rated by owners, although we’d expect some to prefer the additional buttons in the old car.
As a brand, BMW finished 21st out of 29 manufacturers. Almost one in five owners reported a fault in the first year of ownership, which is a little higher than average.
The new 2 Series Active Tourer hasn’t gone through the rigorous Euro NCAP test process yet, but all of BMW’s recent models have scored the full five stars and we’d expect the 2 Series to carry on the trend.
