The 2 Series Active Tourer is a front wheel drive, tall space efficient vehicle designed for families. Sounds familiar? Ingredients of minivan you say? We’d agree. While we have yet to drive the car it’s not hard to imagine most typical BMW buyers having a hard time getting past the look of the 2AT. And just imagine what the 7 seat version will look like?

So it all begs the question – has BMW finally gone too far with making its band more accessible (a la the 5GT or 3GT)? Or is BMW once again ahead of the curve as they were with the X5 and the MINI?
