The Auto Trader expert verdict:
Big brother to the 2 Series Active Tourer, the Gran Tourer offers much of the same appeal and a similar engine line up and specification, just with seven seats and an even bigger boot. For families not convinced by SUVs or crossovers but eager to drive a practical, adaptable vehicle with a premium badge the Gran Tourer offers a compelling package, albeit with a premium price too.
Reasons to buy:
- Sporty drive for a seven-seater
- Some very economical engines
- Desirable for an MPV
