BMW expanded in a brand new model segment with its first front-wheel drive
car ever made. The 2-Series Active Tourer will be available with an optional M
The newcomer in the premium compact class skillfully blends comfort and functionality of space with the trademark BMW strengths of dynamism, style and elegance. Following on from the Coupe as the second member of the new BMW 2 Series range, the Active Tourer combines compact dimensions on the outside with a strikingly spacious feel on the inside, making it perfectly suited to cope with the growing challenges of urban mobility.
Estoril Blue Color Exclusive to M Sport Package
In addition to the basic trim, a Sport Line and a Luxury Line are also offered. And from November the M Sport package will provide a further way to lend an extremely individual feel to both the exterior and interior of the BMW 2 Series Active Tourer.
The M Sport package stands out from the crowd and takes road presence to new levels. It includes the M aerodynamics package (with special front, rear and side body parts), a distinctive high-gloss black double kidney grille at the front of the vehicle and M Sport suspension
with a 10-millimetre reduction in ride height for further improved driving dynamics. Special 17 or 18-inch wheels, and the BMW Individual high-gloss Shadow Line window trim, round off this exclusive package.
Customers can also specify Estoril Blue paintwork, which is exclusive to the M Sport package. M badging at the side, specially styled brakes and the chrome-trimmed tailpipes are further distinctive highlights of this package.
Interior features like the M door sill finishers, the M multifunction leather steering wheel, M footrest, M shift lever, the BMW Individual anthracite roof liner and the blue contrast stitching in the instrument panel all contribute to a sporty ambience. The sports seats are specially upholstered in a combination of "Micro Hexagon" fabric and Alcantara, or alternatively in black leather with blue stitching and M piping. The three-color BMW M vehicle key adds the perfect finishing touch to an exceptional package.
