The BMW 2 Series Active Tourer was the brand’s first ever front-wheel-drive ultimate driving machine – after the German company had always insisted they would never go front-wheel-drive. Although this might not interest all of you, it will certainly be an eye-opener for some of you.
It set other precedents, too, as it was their first attempt at a compact MPV. Here to rival the coveted Mercedes B-Class, there are a lot of question marks around the car, with some critics suggesting that it’s going to go down in history as a footnote and nothing more.
But with a big budget lavished on chassis development and engines, BMW hope this is one compact MPV that has legs. OSV takes a closer look to help you decide whether you’re a sceptic or a convert.
