BMW 2 Series Gran Tourer review - Reliability and Safety

Reliability and safety should not be a concern, but servicing costs are higher than average

The 2 Series Gran Tourer did not feature in the 2019 Driver Power Survey, but BMW itself finished 25th overall out of 20 manufacturers. Its MINI-based underpinnings should prove reliable, but our survey revealed that owners find insurance and servicing to be expensive.  

Euro NCAP has yet to crash test the 2 Series Gran Tourer, but the smaller, very similar 2 Series Active Tourer achieved a full complement of five stars, with an 84% adult occupant rating. BMW has fitted all models with a pedestrian warning with city braking function which can not only warn the driver of a potential accident but will automatically apply the brakes to minimise the severity of any collision or even prevent one entirely.

Warranty

BMW offers an unlimited-mileage, three-year warranty on all its cars. This can be extended at extra cost if required.

Servicing

BMW offers a number of fixed-price servicing plans to help spread the cost of maintenance, along with 'fast-lane' servicing options if you're in a hurry. Expect to pay more to service your BMW MPV than you would for an equivalent offering from the class below.
