2022 BMW 2-Series Active Tourer Revealed
The 2022 BMW 2-Series Active Tourer has been revealed, and it is built on an architecture that can accept both internal combustion engines and electrified drive systems.
The style of the second-generation model has been updated. The latest variant (read bigger) of the ‘kidney’ grille that dominates the front fascia of the automobile is flanked by a pair of slim LED headlights upfront.
Along the sides, split LED tail lamps, a muscular rear bumper, and a small windscreen that fits in the shapely boot lid can be seen, while behind them are heavily raked A-pillars, a short window area with a rising beltline, flush-fitting door handles, and wide wheels.
The premium hatchback will be available in up to 11 colors and depending on the model, it will come with 16- or 17-inch wheels, with the option to upgrade to 19-inch wheels.
The 2022 BMW 2-Series Active Tourer is available in three trim levels: basic, Luxury Line, and M Sport, with a cabin inspired by the iX electric SUV.
The dashboard features horizontally positioned air vents and metallic trim, as well as a multifunctional sports steering wheel and a minimalist center console.
4 USB connections, 2 12 V power plugs, a slidable, split/folding rear bench, and minimum cargo space of 415 liters are all included in the cabin.
The 2018 BMW 2-Series Active Tourer is equipped with a 10.25-inch curved display, a 10.7-inch cluster, new generation iDrive based on BMW Operating System 8, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto, BMW Maps, and Park Assist with reverse camera, among other amenities.
Interior cameras, 2-zone automated climate control, rain-sensing wipers, automatic tailgate opening, and automatic headlight activation are also included.
Adaptive LED headlights, wireless charging, sport seats, panoramic sunroof, adaptive M suspension, Active Cruise Control with Stop and Go feature, and other options are available to consumers.
The car will be available in front-wheel-drive 218i (134 BHP), 220i mild-hybrid (168 BHP), 223i mild-hybrid (214 BHP), and 218d (147 BHP) variants from the start.
A 7-speed Steptronic dual-clutch transmission is standard on all models. A 19 BHP electric motor is fitted into the transmission in the mild-hybrid models. BMW plans to introduce two plug-in hybrid cars to the lineup in 2022, according to the company.
Apart from the standard passive safety systems, the 2022 BMW 2-Series Active Tourer has Cruise Control with brake function, Lane Departure Warning, Evasion Assistant, and front-collision warning as standard.
The premium hatchback will be constructed at BMW’s Leipzig facility and will be on sale in foreign markets in February 2022.
