The new BMW 2 Series Gran Tourer F46 will be presented in a few weeks at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show 2015 and will come to the market a few weeks later. The seven seater 2 Series was spotted in China providing a good impression of the final roofline and window graphics at the rear of the vehicle.
Just like the BMW 2 Series Active Tourer F45, the longer Gran Tourer is based on the flexible UKL architecture for front wheel drive vehicles, and especially at the front, the two vans are visually very close together.
Thanks to a longer wheelbase and less sloping roof line, the BMW 2 Series Gran Tourer offers much more space in the rear – so much that on request a third row of seats can be installed. If the seats are not needed, they can be folded to save space.
Engines and transmissions will be shared with his little brother, so expect a combination of three-and four-cylinder engines. Remains to be seen whether the family van will also be offered as a plug-in hybrid.[Source: auto.sohu.com]
