On sale next year

Formerly known as the 1-Series GT, the 2014 BMW 2-Series Active Tourer has been spied without any camouflage during a video shooting.

Back in September 2012 we saw in Paris the BMW Active Tourer concept which served as a preview for this car, the 2-Series Active Tourer. It will be the first front-wheel model in BMW's lineup and will be launched in 2014 not only as a five-seater but also with a seven-seat layout. The design of the car clearly echoes the concept and should make it a worthy adversary for the Mercedes-Benz B-Class.

Riding on the front-wheel drive UKL platform, the 2-Series Active Tourer will reportedly get 3-cylinder, 1.5-liter TwinPower Turbo gasoline and diesel engines also available in the new MINI. The gasoline engines have outputs ranging from 122 HP (90 kW) to 224 HP (165 kW), while the diesels start at 82 HP (60 kW) and reach 184 HP (135 kW).

Chances are BMW plans to show the 2-Series Active Tourer next March at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show.

One thing is that it is a strange segment but I wouldn't mind it if the car actually looked good, which is unfortunately very far from truth.

expect to launch BMW Van and Pick-up, go ahead. BMW are very hungry and want to dominate all segments. is a long-term strategy that will devalue the brand....wrong way.

A BMW for the middle-class school run. Disappointed with what shareholders can do to brands.

How high could the demand for an expensive premium alternative to the Subaru Forester be? The Mercedes B-class has never had strong sales throughout its entire existence. Why even chase after an unprofitable segment?

Exactly. This diversifies their target market, and allows them to not compromise on their enthusiast cars to please the other people that didnt have this option but wanted a bmw. If anything it allows bmw to focus more on each market/series/versions... Its good for both older clients(typical bmw fan), and new dont-care-about-ultimate-driving-machine clients.

It's the most user friendly, least aggressive BMW to date. I don't mind.

BMW - The Ultimate Driving Machine! Oh my god, is it all about making money? Is it really worth to kill the BMW brand just to make stock holders happy for a few weeks? This company is no longer driven by engineers or car enthusiasts...

If Ferrari made a hatchback (FF), Lamborghini green lighted a crossover, Bentley and even RR are planning to make an SUV then why not BMW make this car?

FF is arguably a sportback, Lamborghini has a history of producing an SUV so it's not sacrilegious, if you're familiar with the Bentleys of the past you know that they were accurately described by Bugatti as being trucks and RR is not going to produce an SUV. BMW's crime here is not only that they are producing a wagon/van it's that it's also FWD. BMW has also released research saying that it's customers are looking for prestige/status when they purchase a BMW, I don't know how this vehicle is conducive to serving those customers. The profit margins in this segment are incredibly low and it will have to sell in massive volume to be profitable.
