Watch the first video of the BMW 2 Series Gran Tourer.
The second dedicated front-wheel drive model, the roomy new 2 Series Gran Tourer, will debut next month at the Geneva Motor Show. It will be a direct rival to the recently facelifted second-generation Mercedes-Benz B-Class.
The entry-level model, BMW 218i Gran Tourer, will cost 28,650 euros and offers an identical engine as the 218i Active Tourer which is sold for 1,450 euros less.
The series Gran Tourer shares its exterior styling with the Active Tourer through to the trailing edges of its front door. Its silhouette differs dramatically from traditional rear-wheel drive BMW models, with a short bonnet and heavily angled windscreen.
Inside, the BMW 2 Series Gran Tourer uses the same dashboard and buttons as the ActiveTourer – alongside which it will be produced at BMW’s factory in Leipzig, Germany.
Let’s have a closer look at the new 7-seater BMW minivan.
