The BMW 2 Series is a compact executive car produced by BMW. The 2-Series has several different body styles. It is available as a compact coupe that replaced the 1 Series coupe, or as a convertible model that replaces the 1 Series convertible in the BMW lineup. There is also a new Compact MPV body style, which BMW refers to as an Active Tourer. The 2-Series Active Tourer is unrelated to the coupe and convertible models. While it shares the 2-series name, it is built on a totally different front wheel drive platform that is shared with the 3rd generation MINI Cooper dubbed UKL1. The 2-Series currently competes with new models from Audi and Mercedes-Benz, the A3 Sedan and the CLA Class, respectively, until BMW releases its own front wheel drive/ all wheel drive compact sedan.
Unlike the 1 Series, the 2 Series feature sleeker headlamps and a more aggressive grille and front fascia.
BMW 2 Series Active Tourer M Sport Package includes exclusive Estoril Blue body colour, M Aerodynamics package, M Sport suspension, 17 or 18-inch M light-alloy wheels, M leather steering wheel. The 225i Active Tourer with M Sport Package was unveiled in 2014 Geneva Motor Show.
As part of BMW i Brand Campaign in the US, a BMW 2 Series TV commercial titled ‘Torch’ was premiered leading up to and during NBC’s broadcast of the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games.
