BMW 2 Series Active Tourer MPV gets sporty with new M Sport trim

BMW M Sport package gives 2 Series Active Tourer aggressive edge, on sale November from around £24,500

These are the first official photos of BMW’s new 2 Series Active Tourer complete with M Sport package.

Updates introduced for the sportiest version of the Active Tourer MPV include 17- or 18-inch alloys, 10mm lower sports suspension and the M Aerodynamics package, which modifies the front air intakes giving the M Sport a more chiselled, streamlined appearance. Exclusive Estoril Blue paint and a high-gloss black finish for the double front kidney grilles are included, too.

Exterior changes are matched inside by the addition of an M-branded leather-wrap steering wheel and specially upholstered sports seats to the already luxurious BMW cabin. 

Like the standard Active Tourer, the M Sport uses the same platform taken from the new MINI, stretching the wheelbase to a Mercedes B-Class-rivalling 2,670mm.

As we reported when the 2 Series Active Tourer debuted at Geneva last month, engines are also borrowed from the latest MINI, including a 134bhp turbocharged 1.5-litre three-cylinder petrol engine and a frugal 148bhp 2.0-litre diesel, returning a range-topping 68.9mpg. 

The flagship 225i xDrive model, meanwhile, is powered by a 228bhp 2.0-litre turbo.

There’s currently no word from BMW about how much the Active Tourer will cost when it arrives here in November, although an M Sport 1-Series costs £1,685 more than the SE variant, so expect to see prices for the Active Tourer M Sport start at around £24,500.
