We know what you may be considering: right here comes yet another BMW with however another variety of roofline. Only this is not just an additional BMW. It’;s the initial front-drive BMW, and the first time we’;ve ever seen it in individual.
That model, of course, is the new 2 Series Lively Tourer, debuting here in Geneva as the production version of the Notion Energetic Tourer and the beefier Notion Lively Tourer Outdoor that followed. It shares about as considerably with the 2 Series Coupe as a jelly donut, but requires BMW into a new market section – that of the high-roofed hatchback (or micro-minivan, based on your point of view) occupied by the likes of the Mercedes-Benz B-Class and Volkswagen Golf Sportsvan.
Electrical power comes from a option of 1.5-liter turbo 3, 2.-liter turbo 4 or 2.-liter turbodiesel – but aside from the forced-induction engines what they all the versions have in common is what tends to make the 2 Series Energetic Tourer newsworthy: they all sit up front, driving the front wheels. It truly is an thought BMW purists might not value, but one we’;d all much better get utilised to just the identical.
