2020 BMW 2

Luxury versions upgrade the wheels to 18 inches and add chrome exterior trim, leather upholstery and an Anthracite headliner. Your feet are below you rather than ahead. Changes on the other end are pretty subtle. And finally, mention of the X1 brings us onto a significant market shift. Also, the famous kidney grille gets slight reshaping, while headlights are pretty much the same. The 218i offers the lower running costs, with claims of 53. You can have a surprising amount of fun behind the wheel — the steering is sharp and accurate and body lean is well contained.

BMW 225xe iPerformance hybrid 2020 review

The rear room is decent for the class, but no better than that. As we already mentioned, this is a long wheelbase version, so there are three rows of seating packed. Here, it produces a combined total of 221bhp, getting the 225xe from 0-62mph in as little as 6. Business users will certainly appreciate its 13% Benefit-in-Kind BiK liability, but you need to regularly top up the batteries to achieve the above figures. Topping the power stakes is the 189bhp motor fitted to the 220i, completing the 0-62mph sprint in 7. The coupe is also offered as a high-performance model called the M2 Competition. There are some pretty out-there options for colour schemes too.

2020 New BMW 2 Series Gran Tourer Review

As with any plug-in hybrid, driving with the battery on empty will make the 1. It was a very light-touch makeover, with new lights and bumpers at the front and rear, and a few tweaks to the interior. Those who need seven seats might want to check out the slightly bigger. The ride, because it controls roll and understeer so well, is pretty firm and sometimes thumpy. The M2 Competition is the most powerful variant, featuring a 3. The part that probably suffered most is the front bumper, which comes with a revised shape, as well as with new air intakes and fog lights design. On the other side, the powertrain lineup remains largely the same.

2017 BMW 2 Series Active & Gran Tourer Review

So I think few buyers in a non-image sector will pay for an image badge. With conquest rates as high as 80 per cent, the majority of customers are new to the brand. On the other side, top-range models can easily go over 45. The tester, a 218d Sport, would have been £25,455. The regular models and more aggressive M Sport are given bumpers that differentiate them further, and all models get a full-width lower grille below the kidney grille, which has been enlarged for 2018. The front-end urgency and steering precision is still there, but the larger body trailing behind isn't as happy to play ball when pushing hard.

Lowering and raising the back pair of seats is easy too, with just a plastic lever to lightly pull unlike the straps employed by some rivals. The M Sport version gets a more exuberant body kit and interior highlights like a sports steering wheel and ambient lighting. For added practicality, the 2 Series Gran Coupe has a 15. Of course, there is a couple of new colors in the offer, while the rest of the vehicle kept the original look. Passengers in the back have a particularly good view out, helped by the fact their seats have been raised by 30mm to allow the battery pack to be placed underneath. Base models are equipped with a 1. There is also dual-zone climate control, an automatic tailgate, rear parking sensors and automatic wipers and lights.

BMW 2 Series Active Tourer 218i SE

Cheaper models further down the range are likely to make far more sense. Doing so also better ties down the body vertically, which has a tendency to bob about over undulating roads with changes of camber. Despite hoisting the rear bench up by 30mm, the Active Tourer has a tall enough roof that occupants should still have plenty of headroom, while front passengers will find lots of adjustment for their seats. Although the Gran Coupe handles well, the experience feels artificial and the car understeers too much when pushed to its limits. It competes squarely with the , which has a similar layout.

Of course, diesel versions are available too. For all its inoffensive, family-friendly proportions, that makes the 2 Series Active Tourer a controversial car. Running costs take a bit of knock, with the manual posting the costliest figures of the range at 44. Go for navigation and the 2 Series Gran Coupe adds a larger 10. And that three-cylinder engine is one of our favourites in the range.
