With a price of 28,650 euros, the BMW 2 Series Gran Tourer, despite the great utility, is placed slightly above the 2 Series Active Tourer.
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.
Later, the 216i Gran Tourer will take over the role of the entry-level model and will be sold for 28,000 euros.
The BMW 220i Gran Tourer has a base price of 32,450 euros. For now, the 225i model with 231 hp seen in the Active Tourer lineup is not planned for the Gran Tourer.
The 116-hp three cylinder 216d family van will cost at least 30,400 euros, while the 218d with 150 hp and four cylinders, will set you back 32,350 euros. The top diesel initially – BMW 220d – is available only with all-wheel and 190 hp, and sells for 40,200 euros.

BMW will offer the 220d with front-wheel drive later this year.
In addition to the standard version, the new BMW F46 2 Series Gran Tourer is available in a further four model variants: Advantage, Sport Line, Luxury Line and M Sport. The exterior dimensions are: 4,556 x 1,800 x 1,608 mm (179.3 inches long, 70.9 inches wide and 63.3 inches tall). A mere 214 millimeters longer and 53 millimeters higher than the BMW 2 Series Active Tourer, the new BMW 2 Series Gran Tourer provides a further significant increase in space thanks to its long wheelbase, measuring 2,780 millimeters. BMW 2 Series Gran Tourer offers ample space and a generous luggage compartment that can be extended in capacity from 645 to 805 liters (67.3 cubic feet).
The optional third row of seats for two can be completely lowered into the loading floor.
For now, BMW will offer the Gran Tourer in Germany and remains to be seen if the U.S. market will decide to bring them over.
The seven seater Gran Tourer will make its world premiere next month at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show and will go on sale this summer.
