In fall 2012, BMW introduced the Concept Active Tourer at the Paris Motor Show. The concept car gave us a preview at what the first front-wheel drive BMW may look like.

About a year and a half later, the F45 BMW 2 Series Active Tourer is born.

Our image comparison shows lots of similarities between the two vehicles, but at the same time, some significant changes as well. First, the kidney grille have gone under a small surgery, they are now flatter and the headlights’ size have been increased as well.

At the rear, the BMW 2 Series Active Tourer have most conventional tailpipes, since the concept was shown in Paris was a hybrid. The taillights are also less “futuristic”, think more production than concept, a trend we have seen before. From the profile, we can see a different set of door handles and mirrors.

Inside we get a toned down version of the concept interior, one that resembles current BMWs in the lineup. Gone are the glass inserts and cool looking iDrive knob, replaced by the “typical” BMW buttons and trim.

Without any further ado, here are the comparison images:

    Getting an idea of the future expenses that you have to incur on the used BMW can help you in negotiating the price. BMW are popular and they are available in plenty in the used car industry. You will find a lot of options and you need to research prices to ensure you don’t pay more than the vehicle is worth.

    the concept was so cool, but they changed the details(HLights&Rlights) and now its dull and merc b class like..

      If the details in the headlights and rear-lights were all the concept had going for it then it really didn’t have a lot going for it in the first place.

    I really liked the concept, but now I’m not sure about the production version. Something is slightly off. In general the car itself has been softened, rounding features slightly.

    However, I think what’s killing me is the window trim. On the production version the front of the trim has an oval shape that slops downard going to the rear. The rounding at the A-pillar and B-pillar downward is giving the optical illusion of a “bubbly roof line” (think C-Max, but the C-max is actually “bubbly” round). The window trim on the concept version is more angular and doesn’t slope down towards the rear; it actually angles up then straight across until it hits the C-pillar. This gave it a very sporty appearance.
    *Sigh*

    Granted, this is still the best looking MPV and looks the least like a squished minivan. I would rock one sitll, probably. Have to see what the new CLubman will offer.
