Feb

2014 BMW 2 Series Active Tourer tt1 2014 BMW 2 Series Active Tourer   Front Wheel Drive and Something MoreThe scandalous 2-Series Active Tourer front-wheel-drive car by BMW is here. For some, this is the natural way of things happening and for others, it is a real disappointing news. This is the first FWD vehicle that BMW has ever produced. What is more, it comes with three-cylinder engines… just “impressive”!

We don’t know how to comment such vehicle. Yes, it is a typical BMW with nice interior, good engines and performance, but why they did it with FWD? Nobody knows!

Still, the 2-Series Active Tourer can’t be mistaken – kidney grille, twin circular headlights and the well-known Hofmeister kink. The dimensions are 4,342mm in length, 1,800mm in width and 1,555mm in height with a wheelbase of 2,670mm. The interior is also pretty much the same like in all new BMWs – driver-centric design, a lot of good-positioned buttons and switches.

There are three styling packages – Sport Line, Luxury Line and ///M Sport Package.

The engine range includes a 218i – a 1.5 liter three-cylinder turbocharged petrol – 136HP (100 kW) and 220Nm (162 lb-ft). 0-100 km/h in 9.3 seconds and a top speed of 200 km/h (124 mph). It will return 57.6 mpg UK – 4.9 l / 100 km with CO2 emissions of 115 g/km.

The 225i has a 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharged petrol – 231HP (170 kW) and 350Nm (258 lb-ft) of torque. 0-100 km/h in 6.8 seconds and a top speed of 235 km/h (146 mph).

The diesel variant is only one – 218d – a 2.0 liter turbodiesel – 150HP (110 kW) and 330Nm (243 lb-ft). 0-100 km/h in 8.9 seconds and a top speed of 205 km/h (127 mph).

BMW will also produce a super-efficient 216d as well as 220d and 220i. There will be xDrive versions of the 220d and 225i.

The interesting model, which is planned to have FWD (for first time in BMW’s history) was previewed back in September 2012 at the Paris Motor Show with the Concept Active Tourer.

The five-seat 2-Series Active Tourer model which will be joined later this year by a seven-seat version likely to be called 2-Series Gran Tourer.

The news doesn’t sound so good, because all BMW fans and owners will be a lot disappointed by these vehicles. (more…)
