7-Seater BMW 2-Series Active Tourer Shows Impeccable Manners on Nurburgring
It’s been over a year since we last saw the longer version of the 2-Series Active Tourer, the practical, family carrying BMW that you never knew you wanted. If the regular five-seater was hard for you to swallow, then the same front-wheel-driven car but with a more prominent rear end will not sit too well with you, even if it looks really planted and stable around the treacherous corners of the Nürburgring Nordschleife.
Caught on video by Touriclips, the 2-Series Active Tourer seven-seater is still hidden away under layers of camouflage. This doesn’t necessarily mean it will be any different to the five-seater styling-wise, though the sheer amount of camo it sports might hint at that – it’s just as heavy as on the car we scooped last year.
There is a slight chance BMW will reveal it this year at the Paris motor show, though they’d better make sure Ford is not also revealing its production-spec S-Max, which will be seriously more attractive than it and rival it for driving dynamics too; the Vignale variant of that will run it close for luxury too.
