This state-of-the-art platform will give the new BMW 2-Series Active Tourer a head start in the market for adaptable vehicles that are compact on the outside and spacious on the inside. This platform, together with a higher roofline, long wheelbase and transverse engines, maximises interior spaciousness and flexibility. At the same time, the elevated "semi-command" seating position provides a better overview in complex driving situations. It also makes for easier entry and exit, and does not reduce headroom. Smart details such as a wide range of storage features front and rear and an automatically opening and closing tailgate - controlled by pushbutton or gesture, as desired - are typical of the high level of convenience and practicality offered by this new model. In the rear compartment, for example, a sturdy folding cargo floor provides added flexibility. It can be opened up to give access to an extra storage compartment underneath, with a practical multifunction tray. At the same time, the 40:20:40 split-folding rear seat can be folded down to create a virtually flat extension of the cargo space. If the folding front passenger backrest is lowered as well, it is possible to transport long objects of up to 2.40 metres in length, including sports equipment. Lashing points and multifunction bag hooks, one on either side of the rear compartment, are further features which add to the practicality of this vehicle.
