During the BMW 2-Series Active Tourer media launch in Innsbruck, Austria, the BMW Product Manager Jochen Schmalholz, had the chance to explain the Active Tourer in some more details.
First off, as Schmalholz mentions, the “BMW concept” might be somehow lost with the unveiling of the latest 2-Series Active Tourer with front-wheel drive, the chief also ensuring that the legacy will be carried on by the future production of the 7-seater Active Tourer and a hybrid version.
A reason to still choose the 2-Series Active Tourer as a genuine BMW vehicle, is that inside, the model offers enough space just as the larger X vehicles, coming with 4,342 mm long, 1,800 mm wide and 1,555 mm high.
With the BMW 2-Series Active Tourer to be the company`s first car to come with a front-wheel drive, the model is also the first to be fitted with a three-cylinder unit, which also allows to efficiently use the space inside.
The BMW 2-Series Active Tourer will be first launched in Europe and China, with a 40 percent sales on the Old Continent and 15 percent sales in the most important Asian country.
