BMW's 2 Series Active Tourer compact MPV arguably makes most sense in base 218i petrol form. Jonathan Crouch reports

Ten Second Review

From launch, BMW's 2 Series Active Tourer marked a radical departure for the Bavarians in its use of front wheel drive and its targeting of the compact MPV segment. But this model has brought a weight of talent to the compact MPV sector that has some other rivals very worried. Power in this base 218i petrol version comes courtesy of a 140hp 1.5-litre three-cylinder petrol engine as seen in the MINI Cooper and all of BMW's chassis tuning experience is brought to bear. Plus the brand has recently lightly facelifted this car and improved its safety provision.

Background

Front wheel drive people movers aren't really BMW's forte. Well not until recently at least. BMW is a company that is all about rear wheel drive, with a very profitable sideline in four-wheel drive SUVs. It has let other companies develop MPVs while at the same time quietly selling front-wheel drive cars on the side, albeit wearing the MINI badge rather than a blue and white BMW roundel. At its launch in 2015, the 2 Series Active Tourer crashed straight through all that we thought we knew about BMW product planning. There will still be some BMW traditionalists vehemently opposed to this car, but they needn't worry. BMW will continue to sell them rear-wheel drive sports coupes and such like. If, as an MPV buyer in the compact segment, you thought that your options began and ended with an upscale Ford C-MAX, we think you're going to like the 2 Series Active tourer quite a lot. Here we have a look at the revised version of the entry-level 218i model.

Driving Experience

You're probably showing your age if you remember a BMW badge with '-18' on the back signifying a car with a 1.8-litre engine. These days it's safer to assume the 218i has anything but a 1.8-litre lump plumbed into its nose and such is the case. Pop the bonnet and you're greeted with a 140hp 1.5-litre three-cylinder engine. At least you can claim that your car has the same engine as the BMW i8 supercar. You're just done a few kW of electrical power on BMW's hybrid sports flagship. In this guise, it gets the car to 62mph in a not catastrophic 9.3 seconds before sending it on to a respectable 127mph top speed. With turbocharging, direct petrol injection, double-Vanos variable camshaft timing and the longer firing intervals of the three-cylinders, it generates a chunky 220Nm of torque at just 1,250rpm, which are figures you might more reasonably expect from a diesel. A combination of a balancer shaft, dual-mass flywheel and a centrifugal pendulum absorber help quell the off-beat vibes you often experience in a three-cylinder engine. Where you might expect to find a compact torsion beam rear suspension, BMW has instead fitted a much more complex and expensive multi-link rear end. The 2 Series Active Tourer also benefits from a chassis where weight has been taken out where possible with the use of ultra-high strength steels in key stress points. The result is that the kerb weight of the 218i is a mere 1,320kg. That's only two kilos more than a 1.4-litre Vauxhall Meriva. A six-speed manual comes as standard, with no automatic option available for this particular engine.

Design and Build

This is a compact MPV and as such, it's fairly inevitable that the basic shape is going to be somewhat generic. Cover the badges and grille and most would probably identify this as a Mercedes. The details are nicely executed, but this remains one of the more conservative designs, though BMW has tried to liven up the look of this revised version a little with a larger front kidney grille, redesigned front fog lamps, smarter wheel designs and twin tail pipes on all four cylinder variants. As before, this Active Tourer runs on a lengthened version of the MK3 generation MINI chassis, with the wheelbase extended to 2,670mm. Here, we're looking at the five-seat Active Tourer, but there's also a mechanically-identical 7-seat Gran Tourer body shape available. For a company with no real track record in MPVs, the Munich maker has clearly been studying what works in rival cars. There are sliding and reclining rear seats that allow you to prioritise space for passengers or luggage. Maximum boot space is a respectable 468-litres - which is 20-litres less than the Mercedes B-Class. The rear bench is a versatile thing that can split 40:20:40 and when fully folded there's access to up to 1,510-litres. The front passenger seat also folds to accommodate items up to 2.4m long. Interior changes to this revised model include redesigned seats and a smarter auto gear lever.

Market and Model

Prices start at around £25,000 for this 218i and it comes well equipped. Even the SE gets an automatic tailgate, two-zone automatic air conditioning, rear Park Distance Control, BMW Emergency Call, a 40:20:40 split folding rear seat with electronic folding functionality and 60:40 sliding rear bench. There's also Bluetooth with USB interface and audio streaming functionality, BMW Professional radio with single CD player and 6.5-inch monitor, DAB digital radio, Performance Control, Comfort Go keyless engine start and Drive Performance Control with ECO PRO, Comfort and Sport modes are also included. Rain sensors with automatic headlight activation, a multi-function leather steering wheel & additional 12V power socket complete tan impressive equipment list. If safety's a priority, you'll want to look at the optional 'Driving Assistant Plus' package. This includes 'Active Cruise Control' and a 'Traffic Jam Assistant' that, in heavy traffic, is able to control the car's speed, steer automatically and keep it in its lane. Also available is Lane Departure Warning and the City Braking function, which applies the brakes automatically at speeds up to 37mph in response to an imminent collision with a car, motorcycle or pedestrian, for instance. The Parking Assistant takes care of manoeuvring into parking spots that are either parallel or perpendicular to the road, while its ultrasonic sensors also help to search for suitable spaces up to a speed of 22mph.

Cost of Ownership

You can buy a 218d diesel model which retails for just over £2,000 more, model for model, but you'd have to be cranking out an unholy annual mileage to make it pay off in terms of fuel savings. That's because this 218i gets some absolutely stellar figures and, as we've seen in the MINI, it's one of those engines that actually can approach the published numbers in real world scenarios, as long as you're not too lead-footed. To whit, BMW quotes 48.7mpg on the combined cycle with emissions rated at 132g/km. The usual suite of BMW EfficientDynamics energy-saving features is responsible for making those vaguely implausible looking figures including Auto Start Stop and ECO PRO. When in ECO PRO mode the throttle response is adjusted to encourage a more economical driving style. The extra economy created in ECO PRO mode is fed back to the driver, with the in-car displays showing the additional number of miles achieved.

Summary

The only constant is change, and it's a truism that applies to automotive manufacturing as much as anything else. Stick to dogma and you end up a footnote in the history books. That's why BMW's decision to market a front-wheel drive MPV is both brave and sensible. Of course, there are going to be old schoolers having a fit of the conniptions about it, but where would Porsche be without the Cayenne and where would Bentley be if it hadn't developed the Continental? Both cars were sniffed at by marque purists and both went on to save their respective companies. The 2 Series Tourer isn't a lifeline model in that regard; BMW is too healthy for that, but it nevertheless accesses a huge market sector from which Munich has been traditionally denied. The 218i model would seem to make the most sense for British customers. It's well-equipped, it's keenly priced and it brings a welcome touch of dynamism to a sector where many car makers have done quite well offering substandard fare. It looks like a few of them will have to seriously up their games.

LEADING FROM THE FRONT? (new2) 01/06/2018

The 2 Series Active Tourer will be remembered as the first front-wheel drive BMW. Here's the revised version. Jonathan Crouch looks at what's on offer.

Ten Second Review

Front wheel drive and BMW. It's not often you see those words in the same sentence. Equally unusual is the idea of any kind of BMW MPV. We're here though, to look at a car that brings all of these things together, the Munich maker's 2 Series Active Tourer, a five-seat people carrier that's here been usefully updated.

Background

In 2006, BMW ran an advertisement in many popular magazines. It featured a rabbit with puny back legs and outlandishly big front legs which looked plain wrong, underlined with the caption "That's why we don't have front wheel drives." The message was clear. Cars that sent their power to the front wheels were inherently second rate, an exercise in cost-cutting. Fast forward to today. One of BMW's best selling models is their 2 Series Active Tourer. And it's front-driven. Some may call that hypocrisy, while others recognise that BMW needs to adapt to a changing marketplace. It's also true that BMW has been building and selling front-wheel drive cars for years, albeit with MINI badges rather than BMW roundels on their noses. Almost 20,000 2 Series Active Tourer models have been sold in the UK since the original launch in 2014 and the UK is this model's third best selling market. So it's important for BMW to get this revised model right.

Driving Experience

Just because this vehicle drives the front wheels doesn't mean that BMW has decided to go on a manic cost-cutting frenzy. Where you might expect to find a compact torsion beam rear suspension, BMW has instead fitted a much more complex and expensive multi-link rear end. It's almost as if the Bavarians are overcompensating for something. The 2 Series Active Tourer also benefits from a chassis where weight has been taken out where possible with the use of ultra-high strength steels in key stress points. As before, a broad selection of three and four cylinder engines are on offer, plus there's a petrol Plug-in hybrid variant if you want it. For petrol people, there's the three cylinder 218i with 140hp and the four cylinder 220i with 192hp. Beyond that's, there's the 225xe iPerformance Plug-in hybrid, which mates the 218i engine with an 88hp electric motor and puts out a combined 224hp. Diesel buyers are offered three options; the three cylinder 216d with 116hp, plus a couple of four cylinder options, the 150hp 218d and the top 190hp 220d (also available with xDrive 4WD). The mainstream powerplants team up with three transmission types, including a new seven-speed dual-clutch Steptronic unit. BMW xDrive intelligent all-wheel drive is also available. Turbocharging for all four-cylinder units is now a two-stage arrangement involving twin turbos. This enables even quicker engine response with increased efficiency.

Design and Build

This is a compact MPV and as such, it's fairly inevitable that the basic shape is going to be somewhat generic. Cover the badges and grille and most would probably identify this as a Mercedes. The details are nicely executed, but this remains one of the more conservative designs, though BMW has tried to liven up the look of this revised version a little with a larger front kidney grille, redesigned front fog lamps, smarter wheel designs and twin tail pipes on all four cylinder variants.

Interior changes to this revised model include redesigned seats and a smarter auto gear lever.

Market and Model

Inevitably, this Active Tourer model sits at the premium end of the mid-sized five-seat MPV segment. Prices start at around £26,000 and rise to around £35,000. A 7-speed Steptronic auto 'box is optional with the three cylinder engines, while an 8-speed Steptronic auto is offered either as an option or as standard on the high-torque powerplants, depending on the variant you're looking at. If safety's a priority, you'll want to look at the optional 'Driving Assistant Plus' package. This includes 'Active Cruise Control' and a 'Traffic Jam Assistant' that, in heavy traffic, is able to control the car's speed, steer automatically and keep it in its lane. Also available is Lane Departure Warning and the City Braking function, which applies the brakes automatically at speeds up to 37mph in response to an imminent collision with a car, motorcycle or pedestrian, for instance. The Parking Assistant takes care of manoeuvring into parking spots that are either parallel or perpendicular to the road, while its ultrasonic sensors also help to search for suitable spaces up to a speed of 22mph.

Cost of Ownership

The 1.5-litre turbo petrol engine that many customers will inevitably gravitate to in the 218i variant makes some extremely good numbers, recording 48.7mpg on the combined fuel economy cycle and 132g/km. Economy figures that good make you wonder why you'd pay extra for the diesel but the additional torque of the 216d will prove a draw for many and 65.7mpg combined cycle economy (113g/km of CO2) isn't going to put too huge a dent in the family budget. The usual suite of BMW EfficientDynamics energy-saving features is responsible for making those vaguely implausible looking figures, including Auto Start Stop and ECO PRO. When in ECO PRO mode, the throttle response is adjusted to encourage a more economical driving style. The extra economy created in that ECO PRO setting is fed back to the driver, with the in-car displays showing the additional number of miles achieved. The ideal choice for eco-minded buyers will of course be the iPerformance 225xe Plug-in hybrid version. BMW claims this derivative when fully charged can offer you a 28 mile all-electric driving range. Combined fuel consumption is 122.8mpg, which equates to CO2 emissions of 52g/km. Owners will need around two-and-a-half hours to fully recharge the lithium-ion cells from a standard domestic power socket using the standard charging cable. Faster charging is possible from a BMW i Wallbox, which can top up the battery in around one-and-a-half hours.

Summary

Did you ever expect to see a BMW model range built around front wheel drive with an MPV body shape and offering the option of a three cylinder engine? We're not sure we ever did. Of course the front-driven layout gives this 2 Series Active Tourer a less driver-orientated feel than you'd find in other BMW models. The brand's traditional buyers may not like that, so it's just as well that this car isn't aimed at them. No, you'll be interested in a 2 Series Active Tourer if your need for practicality is greater than your need for a BMW. But you'd still rather like one. If that makes sense to you, then this car will too. Its closest rival, the Mercedes B-Class, doesn't have the same kind of spark and the only other alternative is a much frumpier more conventional mainstream brand MPV. All of which means that BMW's appealing spin on ordinary family motoring will probably continue to attract a ready audience. People who probably never thought they'd be buying from this Munich maker. They won't be getting 'the ultimate driving machine' because that's not what they need. Getting instead what may very well be 'the ultimate small people carrier' will suit them very well indeed.

ACTIVE PRACTICALITY (family) 01/06/2018

You might find the idea of a front wheel drive BMW almost as odd as the idea of a BMW MPV. The Munich maker's improved 2 Series Active Tourer model combines both of these things. June Neary tries it..

Will It Suit Me?

BMW is reaching into the mainstream with this 2 Series Active Tourer, a reasonably spacious and quite affordable family five-seater. This was the brand's first front driven model and it's certainly a classier, more interesting alternative to a conventional Scenic-style compact MPV. I thought I'd try one.

Practicalities

The 2 Series Active Tourer sits on a lengthened version of the same platform used by the MINI Hatch 5-Door and as such, is significantly shorter than, say, BMW's own 3 Series Touring estate model, yet can swallow just as much luggage. It doesn't seek the kind of SUV-style buyer courted by a BMW X1 crossover, yet sits its driver 10mm higher off the ground. And there's room underneath for the kind of optional 4WD system that 1 Series buyers aren't allowed to have. My favourite stat though, relates to rear seat space. You get more with this car than you would in a huge Executive -class BMW 5 Series Touring estate. As my family found, there's pretty much the same kind of luggage room too. Such are the benefits of BMW's decision with this model to switch to front wheel drive. Forget the comparisons though. What matters is that this luggage bay is big enough to be everyday-usable. So bulky items like baby buggies that you might struggle to get into some of BMW's other compact five-door family cars - say something like a 1 Series - will here fit in quite easily. There are lashing points and bag hooks on either side of the luggage bay, plus an optional 'extended storage' pack offers attachments like a load net to help keep things in place should you get a bit carried away on the journey back from the supermarket. Valuables are better housed in this concealed space below the floor, the folding top concealing a handy multi-function tray.

Value For Money

Expect to pay somewhere in the £26,000 to £35,000 bracket for your 2 Series Active Tourer, depending on the spec and model you choose. To put those figures into perspective within the BMW line-up, they see this car pitched at a premium of around £1,800 over the company's five-door 1 Series model - which seems fair enough given that this Active Tourer is better equipped and about 30% larger inside. Big enough in fact to offer almost exactly the same levels of cabin cargo space you'd get from the kind of BMW 3 Series Touring model that could easily cost you £4,000 to £5,000 more. If you need more space in this car, there's the option of finding an £1,800 model-for-model premium to get the seven-seat Gran Tourer version.

Could I Live With One?

I think BMW's appealing spin on ordinary family motoring will probably attract a ready audience. People who probably never thought they'd be buying from this Munich maker. They won't be getting 'the ultimate driving machine' because that's not what they need. Getting instead what may very well be 'the ultimate small people carrier' will suit them very well indeed.
