BMW 2 Series MPV gets M Sport look

M Sport BMW 2 Series Active Tourer gets sharper styling and stiffer suspension

The BMW 2 Series MPV Active Tourer will be available with an M Sport package, when the model goes on sale in November. The car gets an aggressive look and stiffer suspension.

The M Sport model of the BMW 2 Series Active Tourer follows the usual line for other M-Sport equipped cars from across the BMW range. That means it gets a sharp new front bumper, and M Sport specific alloy wheels – in either 17-inch or 18-inch forms. The car also features gloss black trim for the firm’s trademark ‘kidney’ grille, and is available in Estoril Blue, which is usually reserved for BMW’s performance models.

The M Sport theme carries over into the interior, where the BMW 2 Series Active Tourer gets the company’s M Sport sports steering wheel and body-hugging sports seats.

The changes are not just aesthetic, either, the M Sport package includes suspension that is 10mm lower than standard, which should mean it corners quicker and with less body lean than the basic model.

The Active Tourer was originally unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show, and represents a change of direction for BMW. Based on the new MINI, it is the first front-wheel drive (rather than rear-wheel drive) model the company has ever built. The result is that the Active Tourer offers more interior space – with a 468-litre boot, and rear seats that slide forwards and back. A seven-seater model is also said to be on the way

The BMW uses the MINI’s 1.5-litre engine to offer eager performance and impressive economy. It is also available with an even more economical diesel, while the fastest model is the 2.0-litre petrol 225i, which produces 228bhp.

The new M Sport BMW 2 Series is set to cost from around £24,500. For all the latest reviews from the BMW range, visit the Carbuyer BMW reviews page.
