BMW 2 Series Gran Tourer
The new BMW 2 Series Gran Tourer takes its sector into new territory by achieving the perfect balance of function and style. With three rows of seats offering space for seven people, best in class driving dynamics and the latest technology to ensure you’re always connected, it’s the car to put exhilaration into everyday driving.
FUNCTIONALITY NEVER LOOKED SO GOOD.
Successfully combining functionality and sporty aesthetics is something BMW’s skilled designers excel at. The result is a class leading vehicle with seven seats, large luggage capacity and an abundance of storage, all within a dynamically designed exterior that appears athletic and low cut. Plus, with a choice of Sport, Luxury and M Sport models, extensive exterior and interior design options are available.
The new BMW 2 Series Gran Tourer is tailor-made for anyone who needs a vehicle to fit their everyday life, but refuses to compromise on style.
From every angle, it’s obvious that the BMW 2 Series Gran Tourer has been created with a different design philosophy to its competitors. From the trademark twin kidney grille at the front, to the large L-shaped light bars that give the car a wide, sporty stance at the back, it brings an unparalleled level of dynamism to the sector.
The raised roofline (5cm higher than the 2 Series Active Tourer), large doors and tailgate give easy access to all seven seats and the boot. However, the perceived height of the car is cleverly reduced due to an inclined windscreen and high bonnet. It is also longer, (providing more interior space), but short front and rear overhangs ensure it retains a sporty, agile look.
At the front, beautifully contoured lines emphasise the car’s broad look, and in profile, the smooth, aerodynamic silhouette further emphasises the decisive design of a car that beautifully combines functionality with style.
Inside the BMW 2 Series Gran Tourer, the large windscreen, optional panoramic roof and intelligently redesigned pillars all flood the interior with natural light and provide superior all-round vision.
The third row of seats provides space for seven people and the capacity for three child seats in the second row. To give greater flexibility, the third and seconds rows can be folded down (the second row automatically) to provide space for large luggage and other bulky items.
The interior is packed with features to make every journey a pleasure, such as dual-zone climate control, automatic tailgate operation (via a foot sensor under the rear bumper), rear Park Distance Control (PDC) and DAB radio as standard.
Of course, storage is key in a car designed for everyday adventures; every row of seats has useful compartments beneath it, both centre armrests can house numerous items, each door has ample integrated pocket space and almost every surface is designed to ensure that everything you need is always accessible.
The BMW 2 Series Gran Tourer allows you to configure its interior to the demands of each journey. Fit long (up to 2.6m) and large items in with the help of a foldable front passenger seat, electronically folding second row seats and a foldable boot floor (creating an extra 100 litres of space).
The BMW 2 Series Gran Tourer Sport has a commanding, athletic presence. The front air inlets, iconic kidney grille and wing mirrors all feature touches of High Gloss Black that subtly suggest a dynamic performance. The choice of 16 or 17-inch alloys and the black chrome plated exhaust pipe finisher give an equally sporty look to the side and rear.
Inside, the highlights of High Gloss Black are continued in the dashboard and door trims, while the various air intakes are finished in a refined Chrome Pearl Grey. The front Sport seats (in optional leather) with red or grey contrast stitching (to match the dashboard) are ergonomically designed to hold your body in the perfect driving position behind the Sport leather steering wheel.
The chrome details on the front air inlets and rear bumper of the BMW 2 Series Gran Tourer Luxury are just hints of the car’s elegance. ‘Luxury’ badging in chrome on the front side panel and door sill give a strong sense of identity, while the 16 and 17-inch alloys provide an unmistakably refined appearance.
High quality materials define the interior, with the dashboard and door trims finished in wood fineline, and seats upholstered in optional leather with contrast stitching. Details such as Chrome Pearl Grey highlights on the air intakes and delicate contrast stitching on the dashboard complete the view from the cockpit. Take hold of the Sport leather steering wheel and experience a drive that pampers all the senses.
The M Sport model brings the BMW 2 Series Gran Tourer’s dynamic characteristics to the fore, with the M Aerodynamic package accentuating the car’s expertly crafted lines. 17 and 18-inch alloy wheels, M Sport suspension and M Sport brakes with coloured brake calipers promise a truly premium performance, while the High Gloss Black kidney grille, M badging and exclusive M paint in Estoril Blue, further emphasise the model’s high specification.
From wherever you’re sitting the aluminium hexagon trims on the doors and dashboard and Chrome Pearl Gloss finish on the air intakes are just some of the many details that enhance the interior. If you’re lucky enough to be in the cockpit, you will be cocooned in a Sport seat upholstered in exclusively designed cloth or leather, sitting behind a M multifunction leather steering wheel that urges you to get out on the road.
Whether you’re transporting people, bulky items, or both, the BMW 2 Series Gran Tourer does it with ease. From the adaptable rear seats to the spacious luggage compartment which can be transformed into two extra seats, there’s always enough room, however full your life.
A wealth of storage options are cleverly placed throughout the interior, giving you instant accessibility to everything you need, whilst keeping the interior clutter-free. Compartments under all front and rear seats and armrests are supplemented by footwell nets and dashboard storage. And to minimise spillages, cup and bottles sit happily in a variety of easy-to-reach holders.
Room for three child seats
The second row of seats in the BMW 2 Series Gran Tourer is approved for transporting three child seats, positioned directly next to each other. The two outer seats also feature ISOFIX child safety seat fasteners, which are concealed under flaps.
When you’ve got more people than bags, a third row of seating exists within the luggage area to offer space for seven as standard and still leaves 145 litres for luggage. Passengers travelling in the third row will do so in complete comfort thanks to a high roofline (ensuring ample headroom and legroom), and for younger passengers, this row can accommodate two child seats.
The intelligent BMW xDrive four-wheel drive system is unique within the sector. This, in combination with Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) provides excellent directional stability and outstanding traction, even on the most challenging road surfaces.
