The 2 Series Active Tourer features a plug-in hybrid system, accommodating both combustion engines and electrified drive systems.


On the outside, the five-seater vehicle flaunts what the brand touts as a modern crossover character profile, including heavily raked A-pillars, a stretched side window graphic, flush-fitting door handles and slim C-pillars, among other aesthetic flourishes. Meanwhile, on the inside, the new vehicle boasts a premium ambience that takes cues from the brand’s higher-end releases, one that emphasises the improved size and versatility. Some of the key features include the slim instrument panel, the BMW Curved Display and the “floating” armrest with a built-in control panel.


BMW adds that the vehicle has the largest selection of systems for automated driving and parking yet for the brand’s compact segment offerings. The Standard specification, for example, includes Cruise Control with brake function, which now reacts to oncoming traffic. And these controls are accessible via the vehicle’s iDrive software, based on the BMW Operating System 8.


Under the hood, the 218i Active Tourer houses a three-cylinder petrol engine with proprietary TwinPower Turbo technology. It boasts a top speed of 214 km/h.


The 218i Active Tourer Luxury Line and the 218i Active Tourer Luxury Line Launch Edition are priced at S$220,888 and S$229,888, respectively.


Prices for the 218i Active Tourer M Sport and the 218i Active Tourer M Sport Launch Edition have yet to be announced.


BMW 2 Series Coupé

The 2 Series Coupé is highlighted by the M240i xDrive Coupé, which offers a 374 hp six-cylinder petrol engine and intelligent all-wheel drive, capable of accelerating from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.3 seconds. The 220i Coupé, meanwhile, is a more affordable variant with a four-cylinder petrol engine that sprints from 0 to 100 km/h in 7.5 seconds. The engines of both models feature BMW’s TwinPower Turbo technology.


For the exterior, the brand wanted to have a striking athletic design that doesn’t compromise the compact form and sporty chassis. It boasts flared wheel arches and a muscular power dome at the centre of the bonnet, along with a horizontal kidney grille. On the side, it sports large glazed surfaces and a roofline that swoops down dynamically.


The interior was similarly refined to deliver a premium ambience, underlined by the use of high-quality materials and precise workmanship techniques. Additionally, the suite of driver assistance systems has been expanded. Standard equipment includes a front-collision warning, Speed Limit Info, Lane Departure Warning and Cruise Control with brake function, to name a few. Drivers can also enjoy Active Cruise Control with Stop&Go function, Surround View and Remote 3D View.


The 220i Coupé is priced at S$257,888, while the M240i xDrive Coupé is priced at S$349,888.
