After its world debut in the BMW i8, the BMW Group’s first three-cylinder petrol engine has now been installed in a vehicle of the BMW core brand as well: the BMW 218i Active Tourer. The new three-cylinder petrol unit stands out for its exceptional efficiency and great performance abilities, with average fuel consumption (as per EU test cycle) of 5.5l/100 km and CO2 emissions of 127g/km. The engine has a displacement of 1.5 liters, generates 136 hp and excels with its spontaneous throttle response, hearty appetite for revs and high pulling power.

The new BMW 2 Series Active Tourer combines its extremely compact dimensions with adaptability, practicality and highly dynamic design, and cuts a sporty and elegant figure from every angle. Deftly balanced proportions based on a long wheelbase and short overhangs at the front and rear create a distinctive BMW silhouette. The front view is dominated by the low-rise double kidney grille, which is positioned lower than the headlights – a feature normally confined to the BMW Coupés and which points immediately to the dynamic personality of this vehicle.

The interior is light and surprisingly spacious. Despite very compact exterior dimensions, with a length of 4,342 millimeters, a width of 1,800 millimeters and a height of 1,555 millimeters, the roomy interior provides comfortable seating for five people and is also light and airy throughout thanks to the large glass surfaces.

The horizontally structured, layered styling of the instrument panel and door panels gives the interior an elegant, light-touch feel and emphasizes the sense of spaciousness. At the same time the typical BMW driver-centric design of the cockpit underlines the sporty character of the new BMW 2 Series Active Tourer.

The BMW 2 Series Active Tourer is the first model in the premium compact class to be made available with an optional Head-Up Display, which projects all relevant driving information into the driver’s field of vision in full color. Instead of being displayed on the windscreen itself, the information is shown on a screen that extends out between the steering wheel and windscreen. This enables drivers to view all key information without having to divert their attention from the road.

The BMW 218i Active Tourer Luxury and BMW 218i Active Tourer Business is available for viewing at Performance Motors’ showroom.
