You’ll pay more for a BMW Active Tourer than its five-set MPV alternatives, but that gets you a great interior and a class-leading infotainment system
As you would expect, the 2 Series Active Tourer leads the way when it comes to interior quality in a car of this type and size. Everything inside has BMW’s trademark solid build and most of the plastics look and feel expensive.
However, remember you’ll pay a premium to drive the Active Tourer (over rivals such as the Citroen C4 SpaceTourer and Renault Scenic) with price starting at around £25,000 and rising beyond £35,000. And, despite a long list of standard equipment, you can expect some expensive options too.
BMW’s iDrive continues to be one of the best on the market, despite having been around for a while now
Of course, paying extra for the BMW also gets you one of the best infotainment systems on sale today: its iDrive system. OK, so you only get a relatively small 6.5-inch screen on all cars, but it is at least easy to move through its on screen menus via the rotary controller and menu shortcut buttons between the front seats.
BMW’s Tech Pack is quite pricey, but brings a bigger screen, as well as a head-up display and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto so is well worth spending out on if you can afford to.
