The new BMW 2 Series Gran Tourer is tailor-made for anyone who needs a vehicle to fit their everyday life, but refuses to compromise on style. Successfully combining functionality and sporty aesthetics is something BMW’s skilled designers excel at. The result is a class leading vehicle with third row seating (totaling seven seats), large luggage capacity and an abundance of storage, all within a dynamically designed exterior that appears athletic and low cut. Plus, with a choice of Sport, Luxury and M Sport models, extensive exterior and interior design options are available.
From every angle, it’s obvious that the BMW 2 Series Gran Tourer has been created with a different design philosophy to its competitors. From the trademark twin kidney grille at the front, to the large L-shaped light bars that give the car a wide, sporty stance at the back, it brings an unparalleled level of dynamism to the sector. The raised roofline (5cm higher than the 2 Series Active Tourer), large doors and tailgate give easy access to all seven seats and the boot. However, the perceived height of the car is cleverly reduced due to an inclined windscreen and high bonnet. It is also longer (allowing space for items up to 2.6m long), but short front and rear overhangs ensure it retains a sporty, agile look. At the front, beautifully contoured lines emphasise the car’s broad look, and in profile, the smooth, aerodynamic silhouette further emphasises the decisive design of a car that beautifully combines functionality with style. Inside the BMW 2 Series Gran Tourer, the large windscreen, optional panoramic roof and intelligently redesigned pillars all flood the interior with natural light and provide superior all-round vision. The third row of seats (which can accommodate two child seat) provides space for seven people. The second row has the capacity to fit three child seats - the two outer seats also feature ISOFIX child safety seat fasteners which are concealed under flaps. To give greater flexibility, the third and seconds rows can be folded down (the second row automatically) to provide space for large luggage and other bulky items.
The interior is packed with features to make every journey a pleasure, such as dual-zone climate control, automatic tailgate operation (via a foot sensor under the rear bumper), rear Park Distance Control (PDC) and DAB radio as standard. All three models (Sport, Luxury and M Sport) come with BMW Business Navigation, BMW ConnectedDrive Services and three years' subscription to BMW Online as standard.
Driver, passenger, side and curtain airbags are standard to all 2 Series models, providing excellent all-round protection to the vehicle's occupants. Seatbelt pre-tensioners also play a potentially crucial part in keeping you and your passengers safe in the event of an accident.
A multitude of active safety systems, however, include adaptive headlights, Dynamic Stability Control, Cornering Brake Control, and Brake Assist, and help drivers to react to dangerous circumstances without losing control.
