The 2022 BMW 2 Series Active Tourer is closer than you think. The new front-wheel-drive model from Munich is about to enter its final test stretch. a situation that we have taken advantage of to present you a new recreation with the new image, and a preview of its engines and time to market.
The renewal of the BMW 2 Series Active Tourer, which was the first model of the brand to debut front-wheel drive, and also the first minivan, is about to face the last round of tests, before its world premiere scheduled for the next summer. Although minivans have been in the doldrums for a long time, the commercial success of this particular model spawned a new generation.
We have seen it in spy photos, and more recently uncovered with a significant loss of much of its camouflage, revealing the new features of this “more capable five-door”, as BMW likes to call it. Some features that we have transferred to this recreation are more faithful to the production model in which everything is new. Although it shares lines and shape with the model currently on sale, internally not a screw – as they say – and a body panel is inherited.
The new BMW 2 Series Active Tourer will be on sale from March 2022
The preview shows a more robust front, with headlights that lose their sharp wedge shape, opting for a more horizontal position, in line with the double radiator grille. The light clusters are thinner and will extend slightly in a beak towards the fins with an inverted “L” shaped LED light signature delimiting each projector, while the “kidneys” will follow the same style of the also new X1, flatter and wider.
A more elegant style, and also more sporty that will be reflected with the rear-view mirrors placed on the door panels or the wheels flush with the body, while at the rear the lights are new, highlighting the shape once again. with an inverted “L”, more sophisticated touch to the Series 2 Active Tourer. A quality that will be more noticeable in a completely new interior, with a large screen extended by the dashboard, and slightly curved, in the purest style of the BMW iX.
