BMW's new 2-Series Active Tourer seats five, and is a longer version with two additional seats. The Active Tourer is a compact sized model measuring 4,342mm (170.2 inches) long, 1,800mm (70.9 inches) wide and 1,555mm (61.2 inches) in height, with a wheelbase of 2,670mm (105.1 inches).
Motivation is provided by the BMW Group's new family of turbocharged three- and four-cylinder engines. The range will kick off with a 136PS (134hp) 1.5-liter 3-cylinder turbo petrol for the 218i that returns a combined fuel consumption of 4.9l/100km (48mpg US / 57.7 mpg UK).
Next up is the 218d with a new 2.0-liter four-cylinder diesel that musters 150PS (148hp) and 330 Nm (243 lb-ft), giving a combined cycle economy of 4.1l/100km (57.4 mpg US / 68.9 mpg UK), while completing the 0-100km/h (62mph) sprint in 8.9 seconds and maxing out at 205km/h (127mph).
BMW will hold the world premiere of the new 2-Series Active Tourer at the Geneva motor show in March.
