BMW has just unveiled the 2 Series Active Tourer, the second member of the 2 Series family and a Mercedes-Benz B-Class rival. Here is an image gallery of the new car.
Measuring a tad more than the 1 Series, the 2 Series Active Tourer is compact but claims to be spacious inside
BMW will offer full colour Head-Up Display (optionally available as part of the Media package - Professional Plus)
L-shaped rear lights and general silhouette is similar to that of the B-Class
The tailgate, with its low sill and wide aperture, gives easy access to the load compartment
For the first time BMW has introduced front-wheel-drive into its model range
The low-rise double kidney grille, which is positioned lower than the headlights is a feature from BMW coupes
The chassis has reduced-friction steering system, a torsionally stiff yet lightweight body with short overhangs, and a low centre of gravity
