BMW 2 Series Active Tourer MPV (2017 - )

As families flock to SUVs and crossovers it’s good to know manufacturers like BMW are sticking by the more practical MPV format, especially with a premium twist like that applied to the 2 Series Active Tourer. Beyond the sight of a BMW badge on an otherwise conventional, family car it’s a model that majors on function rather than flair but offers a wide range of engines, trim packages and even a plug-in hybrid option.

Our expert review

See what our expert review team say about this car

The Active Tourer looks expensive compared with most five-seater MPVs, though now faces competition from the equivalently fancy Mercedes B-Class as premium rivals flock to this previously mainstream sector.

Against the likes of the VW Golf SV that blue and white badge makes your car more desirable and will help the car’s resale values stay solid, significantly reducing your whole-life running costs and keeping monthly finance rates lower than they’d otherwise be. The Active Tourer’s fuel consumption and CO2 figures are very competitive across the entire range of engines, while the plug-in hybrid 225xe has particular appeal in this regard.

Its clever technology means it can return three-figure mpg numbers according to official figures, while CO2 emissions are under 50g/km, which will go down well with company drivers. Just be aware the actual efficiency you end up getting will depend entirely on how regularly you charge it and how gently you drive it.
