Take An In-Depth Look At The First BMW Minivan
The October issue of the Automotive News Europe monthly E-Magazine features an article that takes a closer look at the first BMW minivan.
The BMW 2-series Active Tourer is the brand’s first minivan and first front-wheel drive model of its modern era. The vehicle has a low-slung appearance with a steeply raked windshield and BMW’s double kidney grille placed lower than the headlights.
The hatchback offers a lot of interior space while retaining its sporty driving dynamics. Its luggage capacity can be enlarged and has enough space for golf clubs, camping gear, groceries and more while still being able to accommodate four to five people.
Most BMW enthusiasts prefer the slick performance of the rear-wheel-drive models, so the front-wheel-drive may not appeal to them. Eventually a four-wheel drive and M-line performance version will be launched.
BMW estimates that 75% of the 2-series Active Tourers will be sold to customers who have never purchased a BMW.
