The all-new BMW 2 Series Active Tourer is here. This is the second-generation 2 Series Active Tourer. It has a new exterior and as well as a new interior design. It’s also presented with new connectivity innovations. First things first, we should answer several questions:

 



 

What’s is really the BMW 2 Series Active Tourer?

Well, the BMW 2 Series Active Tourer has to be something between a hatchback and a small van.

 

The 2022 BMW 2 Series Active Tourer captured in a nice lake and mountain scenery. The  2 Series Active Tourer is parked near by two or three benches with a nice view to the lake and the hills.

Why BMW Makes The 2 Series Active Tourer?

The 2 Series Active Tourer is that competitor who has to beat the Mercedes B-Class. The truth is that BMW doesn’t like to make such cars because they are known for their sports cars. Getting in this van-like car segment it’s not something they will stand for.



The proof of that is the very first Mercedes B-Class was launched in 2005 and the very first BMW 2 Series Active Tourer was presented in 2014. Another example of how BMW avoids getting into some segments is the BMW X7 presented in 2018 and at that time the direct competitor Mercedes GLS has three generations. Last and not least is how fast is going the development of electrical models of BMW. It’s kind of slow. The first-ever electrical model BMW i3 looks like a car made by students during the practice class in a professional school. That model uses very specific tires just like Lada Niva (Lada 4x4). Back to the all-new BMW 2 Series Active Tourer which comes first with petrol and diesel engines and a little bit later, in the summer of 2022, there will be added, two plug-in hybrid models.

The main reason is that these guys in BMW are petrolheads. Maybe it was a little bit difficult for them to get used to the idea of 3-cylinder engines and front-wheel drive and a small van-like car to compete for not even the B-Class but as well as the Honda Jazz (Honda Life, Honda Fit – all names of the same model). They are petrolheads but I do think that their motorsport participation is very limited and mostly by private teams. From a business point of view, it's nice - they do produce sports cars, you buy them, you win everywhere you want to; if you can.

Anyway, the BMW 2 Active Tourer is here to provide a BMW experience even in a small van-like car segment. If someone is considering buying a Honda Jazz then it might be interesting to check out what the 2022 BMW 2 Active Tourer offers. It could be very suitable for city driving and the luggage compartment allows transportation volume items. The 2 Series Active Tourer is suitable in the family and also for work.
