After the official launch of the BMW 2-Series Gran Tourer at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, it was just a matter of time until the German carmaker would unveil the xDrive version of the gorgeous family car. We are now witnessing the presence of the long-expected BMW 220d xDrive Gran Tourer.
We are all aware of the strong personality and great qualities that the 2-Series Gran Tourer is coming with, but the 220d xDrive Gran Tourer is adding a few more in terms of safety reasons, powertrain under the hood, as well as driving dynamics and fuel efficiency.
First, the BMW 220d xDrive Gran Tourer completes the 2-Series lineup and complements it with the same characteristics in terms of design and size, the model standing at 4,556 mm long, 1,800 mm wide and 1,608 mm high, offering a lot of space inside both for passengers as well as for their luggage. The overall cargo capacity, with the rear seats being folded, stands at a good 1,905 liters.
Still keeping the proportions inside, the 220d xDrive Gran Tourer comes with a lot of gizmos, a lot of them being oriented towards children`s fun and amusing, amongst which one stands out from the crowd: it is all about the “myKIDIO” application, available only in Germany for the moment, which gives children endless opportunities in terms of entertainment throughout a long journey – cartoons, educational films, audio and video books and other fun to learn materials.
Otherwise, the cabin of the BMW 220d xDrive Gran Tourer still keeps the high-class atmosphere, complemented by the M leather steering wheel, the M Sport seats, the M Aerodynamics package or the BMW Individual high-gloss Shadow Line.
A long journey on heavy weather or road conditions requires a good and high-performance powertrain under the hood, and the BMW 220d xDrive makes the best of it: it comes equipped with five turbo engines with three- and four-cylinder configuration, all with the all-wheel drive system. But the best part comes right now: all of them are extremely fuel-efficient, coming with combined 6.4-3.9 L/100 km, while the combined CO2 emissions stand between 149 – 104 g/km. Add the BMW EfficientDynamics package and you will have the journey of your time with less fuel expenses.
