It’s like the Active Tourer, but with two more seats.
BMW is holding the reveal of the M2 back for the Frankfurt Motor Show, but won’t be coming to Geneva empty handed. This is the 2 Series Gran Tourer, BMW’s latest all-new model. Essentially the Active Tourer MPV with two extra seats, the premium seven-seater MPV is practical, front-wheel drive and will almost certainly never set foot on US soil. BMW will offer the 2 Series GT with a choice of two or four-wheel drive, and with three- and four-cylinder gasoline and diesel engines.
The most potent of the powertrains is the 2.0-liter twin-turbo unit rated at 192 hp in the 220i that’ll hit 62 mph in 7.6 seconds and a top speed of 138 mph. Four trim levels range from the entry level SE cars with folding rear seats, and a powered tailgate through Sport and Luxury to the M Sport that will boast a sports suspension and 18-inch alloys. The two rearmost seats in the third row fold neatly into the floor, and with the second row of seats folded down too – done by pressing a button in the boot – a huge 1,905 liters of space can be realized. The cabin boasts the quality worthy of the brand combined with practical touches in the form of neat storage compartments. The all-new BMW 2 Series Gran Tourer will debut at the Geneva Motor Show next month.
