The defining qualities of the BMW 2-Series Active Tourer and BMW 2-Series Gran Tourer – clearly sculpted surfaces, elegant yet sporty lines and a long wheelbase with BMW’s signature short overhangs – are now given greater impact thanks to the new model generation’s more striking restyled front end and modified rear. The most obvious identifying feature of the new BMW 2-Series Active Tourer and BMW 2-Series Gran Tourer at first glance is their significantly larger kidney grille, which is both taller and wider, and now stretches almost all the way to the headlight units. As a result, it exudes notably more presence and expressiveness. The front apron is dominated by the large air intake, which is split into three sections and bordered by large, C-shaped surrounds in a highgloss black finish. The outer air intakes, meanwhile, house the new optional LED foglamps, further accentuating the cutting-edge, sporty feel.
