BMW 2 Series Gran Tourer Offers Up to Seven Seats in Europe

BMW has revealed variant of its 2 Series Active Tourer called the Gran Tourer. The MPV is still based on the UKL platform that underpins the Mini Cooper, but offers up to seven seats thanks to a stretched body.

Research

At 179.4 inches long and 63.3 inches tall, the Euro-market BMW 2 Series Gran Tourer is 8.4 inches longer and 2.1 inches taller than the Active Tourer it's based on. Width remains the same at 70.9 inches. That extra length increases cargo volume and accommodates an optional third-row bench seat that can fold flat into the floor. The sliding second row features a 40:20:40 split design with headrests that fold down at the press of a button.

The 2 Series Gran Tourer will be available in Europe with a choice of five engines, including turbocharged three- and four-cylinder engines and both gasoline and diesel options. BMW's xDrive all-wheel drive system will be offered on the 220d xDrive Gran Tourer at launch. Tech options will include a head-up display and BMW's semi-autonomous Traffic Jam Assistant. Four trim levels, including Advantage, Sport Line, Luxury Line, and M Sport, will be available.

BMW has yet to decide whether or not to import the five-seat 2 Series Active Tourer to our shores, but we speculated in our First Drive of that car that the automaker might wait until the seven-seat version with all-wheel drive was ready. Now that it's here, do you think it should come to the U.S.? Tell us in the comments below.
