Approved Used BMW 2 Series Active Tourer
About the BMW 2 Series Active Tourer
The BMW 2 Series Active Tourer is a stylish and premium Multi-Purpose Vehicle (MPV). Available in a wide choice of engines – including two different plug-in hybrid versions on latest models – it combines a fun drive experience with a top-class interior.
The first generation of the 2 Series Active Tourer (F45) was launched in 2014, and was in production until 2018, when BMW gave the range a facelift. This introduced further engine options, including those PHEV engines, giving used BMW 2 Series Active Tourer buyers lots of options.
As an official BMW dealership, Dick Lovett has access to some of the best approved used BMW 2 Series Active Tourer models in the UK – all at competitive prices, and all sold with a minimum 12-month warranty included.
Why Buy a Used BMW 2 Series Active Tourer?
If you don’t want an SUV but need a vehicle that’s large enough to keep pace with busy family life, a used BMW 2 Series Active Tourer is worth closer inspection. Don’t confuse an MPV with a functional people carrier; this is a sporty model, with a sleek exterior design, that is unmistakably a BMW vehicle – from its top-class cabin to high quality ride comfort.
Performance and power varies depending on the engine you choose, and here, a used BMW 2 Series Active Tourer has a version to suit all requirements – petrol with mild hybrid tech, PHEV and diesel.
Across the used range, both manual and automatic gearbox options are available, but on newer used BMW 2 Series Active Tourer models, all versions are fitted with a seven or eight-speed automatic DTC transmission. Driving is smooth, with agile handling and light steering.
The BMW 2 Series Active Tourer comes with set driving modes, to enable you to get the most out of every journey, depending on whether you’re looking for optimal performance, or a more economical ride. Select from Comfort, Sport, Individual or Eco Pro.
The exterior styling on the latest version of BMW 2 Series Active Tourer used models has slimmer front headlights and a larger front grille, to accentuate the bold and modern experience.
Inside, there’s lots of space for driver and passengers, with generous head and leg room. This is a five-seater vehicle that’s designed to be family friendly and functional. Need something larger still? The BMW 2 Series Gran Tourer is a seven seater and offers even greater capacity.
Boot space in the BMW 2 Series Active Tourer varies slightly across the range. It’s 470 litres in the 218 diesel model; fold down the rear seats and capacity widens out to 1,405 litres. In the 220i and 223i mild hybrid models, boot capacity reduces slightly to 415 litres.

The pick of the diesel engines on used BMW 2 Series Active Tourer cars is the 220d xDrive. Fitted with eight-speed Streptronic automatic transmission, it clocks 0-62mph in 8.8 seconds and can achieve a combined fuel economy of over 50mpg.

There are three different trim levels available – Sport, Luxury and M Sport. Sport is the entry level model and very well equipped, with automatic LED headlights, air conditioning, parking and windscreen wipers all among the standard features.
The Luxury trim adds comfort features, including leather upholstery and heated front seats. M Sport maximises the sporty image, with a rear spoiler, sports seats, M Adaptive suspension, and 18-inch alloy wheels.
Some used BMW 2 Series Active Tourer models will have packs and optional equipment already added, which could increase the price but provide better value with additional features.
The Comfort Pack includes electric front seats and driver memory system. The Technology Pack has front heated seats, high beam assistant and adaptive LED headlights. The Driving Assistant Professional Pack for extra features: blind spot warning, front and rear cross traffic warning.
