The new BMW 2-Series Active Tourer rises to the challenges of everyday urban driving, experience-oriented leisure activities, family life and longer trips away in equal measure. Innovations in the areas of design and technology lend the car an undeniably forward-looking aura. The new BMW 2-Series Active Tourer is fitted as standard with BMW Operating System 8 and the new generation of the BMW iDrive control system with BMW Curved Display. This combination only currently features in the fully electric BMW iX and BMW i4 and is therefore making its debut in a compact-class model from the BMW brand. The range of driver assistance systems specified as standard or available as options also sets a new benchmark both for the BMW model line-up and across the market as a whole. The new BMW 2-Series Active Tourer additionally plays a trailblazing role in the field of drive system technology. Its vehicle architecture is designed to accommodate both pure combustion engines and electrified drive systems. Customers can choose from three petrol engines and one diesel unit from launch in February 2022. And the range will be expanded a few months later with the addition of two plug-in hybrid models.
The interior of the new BMW 2-Series Active Tourer represents a fundamental updating of the original car. The new geometry of the interior underscores the spacious and open feeling available to be enjoyed in its five seats. The large BMW Curved Display re-interprets the hallmark BMW driver focus in the forward-looking style of the BMW iX. And it adds an extra flourish to a modern, premium ambience headlined by high-quality materials and precision workmanship. Versatile and uncomplicated functionality is the major strength of the new BMW 2-Series Active Tourer, while the sporting instincts for which BMW is renowned give it a character unique in this vehicle segment. The exterior design of the second-generation model provides an authentic showcase for the fusion of these two elements. A long wheelbase, short overhangs, a larger wheel diameter than its predecessor model and a visually imposing crossover design give the new edition of the allrounder even more eye-catching proportions than before. The clean, reduced surface treatment exudes confidence and dynamic elegance, bringing high-end details of the body design clearly to the fore. The appearance of the new BMW 2-Series Active Tourer brings together lifestyle attributes and aesthetic sophistication into a modern crossover character profile.
A noticeable gain in driving pleasure, and a measurable reduction in fuel consumption and emission levels, are key features of the drive portfolio available for the new BMW 2-Series Active Tourer. The petrol and diesel engines chosen for the new model have been taken from the latest generation of the BMW Group’s EfficientDynamics engine family. A more advanced and more powerful version of 48V mild hybrid technology making its debut in the new BMW 2-Series Active Tourer further enhances sports performance and efficiency. The ongoing commitment to powertrain electrification will continue through 2022 with the introduction of two model variants with plug-in hybrid drive. All the engines channel their power through a newly developed sevenspeed Steptronic dual-clutch transmission, which is fitted as standard. The new BMW 2-Series Active Tourer is the brand’s first model to feature a new version of the seven-speed Steptronic dual-clutch transmission, which is to be found on the standard equipment list for all model variants. The latest generation of BMW’s automatic transmission features all-electric actuation, a larger gear spread and higher internal efficiency. It also offers a gear selection strategy adapted to the route profile and now includes a coasting function in all My Modes options, enabling it to contribute even more effectively to increasing efficiency. When the engine is switched off, the transmission now automatically shifts into the P position.
The new BMW 218d Active Tourer will be offered with a four-cylinder diesel engine that has also undergone extensive further development. A key feature of this new diesel engine generation is the use of frictionoptimised pistons made of tempered steel. A graphite coating for the piston skirts also contributes to reducing friction and noise levels. An active oil separator with map-controlled electric motor provides additional cleaning of the combustion gases emitted from the cylinder head cover. To reduce fuel consumption and emission levels even further, the efficiency of the two-stage turbocharging system has also been optimised and improvements made to the common rail injection system and the exhaust gas recirculation system. With a maximum output of 110 kW/150 hp and peak torque of 360 Nm (265 lb-ft), the new version of the 2.0-litre four-cylinder diesel engine powering the BMW 218d Active Tourer provides acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 8.8 seconds. The values of 5.3 to 4.8 litres per 100 kilometres (53.3 – 58.9 mpg imp) for combined fuel consumption and 138 to 125 grams per kilometre for CO2 emission levels, as determined in the WLTP test cycle, underline the further increase in powertrain efficiency.
Plug-in hybrid technology provides an even more intense form of electrification in the new BMW 2-Series Active Tourer and is expected to be added in the model range from summer 2022. The launch of the BMW 230e xDrive Active Tourer (fuel consumption combined: 1.4 – 1.1 litres/100 km; electric power consumption combined: 20.0 kWh – 17.9 kWh/100 km; CO2 emissions combined: 30 – 22 g/km based on the WLTP cycle) and the BMW 225e xDrive Active Tourer (fuel consumption combined: 1.4 – 1.1 litres/100 km; electric power consumption combined: 20.0 kWh – 17.9 kWh/100 km; CO2 emissions combined: 30 – 22 g/km based on the WLTP cycle) will bring two plug-in hybrid models to the line-up, each delivering significant gains in terms of sportiness, efficiency, electric range and charging capacity over their predecessor. It consists of a current-excited electric motor – installed in a single housing along with the power electronics and transmission – plus the latest battery cell and charging technology. The high-voltage battery stands out with a particularly flat design and is located low down in the underfloor structure. This gives the plug-in hybrid models a low centre of gravity, which has a positive effect on agility.
