BMW 2 Series Gran Tourer: First MPV With Seven Seats In Brand's History
|   Tuesday, February 24, 2015
Through its generous space and the revolutionary versatility and flexibility, the BMW 2 Series Gran Tourer is the first premium compact model in the world that offers up to seven seats and meets the requirements of mobility for young families.

Despite its compact size – it measures 4,556 millimeters in length, 1,800 mm in width and 1,608 mm in height - the new BMW 2 Series Gran Tourer offers ample space and a generous luggage compartment, whose capacity can be increased from 645 liters to 805 liters, and by folding down the rear seat backrests, the luggage compartment volume reaches a maximum of 1,905 liters.


Maximum versatility is ensured by the bench seat, which is fitted as standard, by sliding forward and backward, with the backrest split in a ratio of 40:20:40, foldable at the push of a button, and a fastening system for three children seats.

Additional opportunities are offered by the third row of seats, optionally available, which can be completely folded in the trunk floor. The everyday practical character of the car is maximized through a range of storage options for all three rows of seats, as well as the rails on the back of the front seats with folding tables attached.

The new BMW 2 Series Gran Tourer is a pioneer in the way it combines the traditional qualities of the segment - such as spatial functionality and comfort – with the BMW traditional values like dynamic elegance and premium quality.

All engines available are from the new BMW TwinPower Turbo family of engines and combine the latest BMW technology (such VANOS, Valvetronic, direct injection, common rail injection or turbo systems) for an incomparable combination of sporting performance and efficiency. Excepting the 220d xDrive version, all engines have the front-wheel drive. All versions can be optionally equipped with an automatic 6-speed gearbox, for engines with 3 cylinders, and an 8-speed gearbox, for engines with 4 cylinders, while the 220d xDrive comes with an automatic gearbox fitted as standard.

The entry-level motorization is a diesel displacing 1.5 liters, which is in the 216d's equipment. This unit develops 116 hp and 270 Nm. The second diesel on offer is a 218d, a TwinPower Turbo 2.0 liter propeller rated at 150 hp and 330 nm.

The diesel flagship is the 220d xDrive, which provides 190 hp and 400 Nm, thanks to which the MPV with seven seats can accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h in the 7.6 seconds and a top speed of 218 km / h.

Petrol engine range has two units: 218i and 220i. The first has three cylinders, rated at 136 hp and 220 Nm which are sufficient to accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h in 9.5 seconds and is capable of a top speed of 205 km / h.

The second engine offers a Twin Power Turbo 2.0-liter that develops 192 hp and 280 Nm. In addition to that, acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h is carried out in 7.6 seconds and the maximum speed is 223 km / h.

A novelty in the case of BMW 2 Series Gran Tourer is an application called "myKIDIO", available at the time of launch only in Germany, which provides and manages multimedia content suitable for families so that the rear passengers can enjoy movies, serials, audio books music and tablets mounted on dedicated supports located behind the front seats. In turn, children can access on tablets information relevant to their journey, such as remaining time until arrival at destination, outside temperature, and the current running speed.
