Small tweaks make a big difference

BMW has quietly released the first pictures of the 2-Series Active Tourer with M Sport package.

Looking decidedly more aggressive than the standard model, the 2-Series Active Tourer M Sport is distinguished by an aerodynamic body kit, a high-gloss black grille, a sport-tuned suspension (which reduces the ride height by 10mm) and 17- or 18-inch alloy wheels.

The sporty styling continues in the cabin as the M Sport package adds a leather-wrapped sport steering wheel, specially upholstered sports seats, an anthracite roof liner and M-branded door sill plates.

As we have previously reported, the 2-Series Active Tourer will be launched with three different engines including:

  • A 1.5-liter three-cylinder petrol with 136 HP (100 kW) and 220 Nm (162 lb-ft) of torque
  • A 2.0-liter four-cylinder petrol with 231 HP (170 kW) and 350 Nm (258 lb-ft) of torque
  • A 2.0-liter four-cylinder diesel with 150 HP (110 kW) and 330 Nm (243 lb-ft) of torque

For my opinion this is just a car for older people! I can imagine that it is necessary for BMW to get new customers but concerning the products they are producing/planning at the moment which you can compare to a B-Class or some of the VW models (Sharan, Touran, etc) it would be better BMW would found a subbrand... These cars do nothing have in common with the BMW philosophy!?

I see a commercial a lot like the old Nissan Pathfinder one. The one where dad is racing the "Paris to Dakar" with a kid in the backseat eating an ice cream cone. This time; Mom is going around Nurburgring while texting on her phone, dad is riding shotgun in the act of going ballistic trying to figure out Idrive, and the kids are struggling against the G's to play angry birds on their IPads. BMW, The ultimate machine for non-drivers.

Saddening to see a great DNA dissipate. Unless the f80/82 surprises me my business will solely be going to porsche.

Aggressive? It looks quite friendly, especially if you use your imagination to think the 'kidney' grilles look like sunglasses.

Yes, but BMW wants to be a "sportif" brand, I thought. Front-wheel-drive can by definition not match their "driving pleasure" core value. An M version of this shows clearly what BMW's real attitude is: to make money.

@ w0bBle, all I meant was making sport packages named after their high performance lines, even if they aren't a true high performance version. I guess if you hadn't already decided to hate the 2AT so much maybe you would have been less of an a** in your reply. @swizly, it's just an optional package to give a sportier look, it's not actually an M version.

@CDspeed: You should know by now how it goes here in WCF. If its BMW, its bad. If its any other competitor, its good. @w0bBle: Mate i think you need your tampon changed. Watch Audi slap an S line package on their upcoming A2 mpv as they have already done with their A1 and SUV range, same as BMW has done to theirs and same Merc has done. Its best to take off your blinkers. @swizly said "An M version of this shows clearly what BMW's real attitude is: to make money". And the core function of every business is to make money. The M badge is used to attract customers through their knowledge that the brand is synonymous with performance and style. Average Joe couldn't give a rats ass if BMW slapped an M badge on a Mini, the badge SELLS the product. One would think that would be pretty apparent in this day and age of BMW but alas there are still some ignorant folk.

@ Boogie_Woogie, your right, the second WCF posts a BMW article the vultures begin to circle. And you can't do anything but praise Audi or Mercedes or you'll be attacked, I like all three brands, all three of them build great cars in my opinion.

Someone sounds a little bitter a more lengthy response would definitely help next time I never mentioned that I did not like 2at @Swizly I think the most recent GTI is one of many examples that show that front wheel driving pleasure can be a core value. I also don't think that the average MPV really cares about rear wheel drive

@Boogie_woogie concerning the audi mpv there is a difference between doing it (as cdspeed mentioned)and going to do it as you kindly pointed out.i dont know how the tampon got involved into this discussion all i know is your gross and you look like a wankster with your lovely earings not smiling on your pictures is usually a good indicator that you must be pretty bada$5 dude

Not my preferred direction BMW is going by making MPVs and FWD, but hey, change happens, and I'd rather someone who needs an MPV buy an MSport 2AT than a run of the mill minivan if they really need the practicality.
