BMW reveals the 2 Series Gran Tourer

At the 2015 Geneva Motor Show BMW will present the 2 Series Gran Tourer, a flexible family vehicle that combines compact dimensions with a spacious, seven-seat interior.


Measuring 4,556 millimetres 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 that can be extended in capacity from 645 to 805 litres – up t 1,905 litres with the rear-seat backrests folded down.

The proportions are defined by the long wheelbase and short overhangs, with a high roofline and large doors, and a touch of dynamism given by the muscularly sculpted hood with its forward-slanting kidney grille and by the inclined D-pillar.

Despite the spacious interior, the front end is sporty and flat, and features the trademark twin kidney grille and twin round headlights.

The interplay of a low windscreen and high engine compartment cover significantly reduces the overall perceived height.

At the rear, the tail lights form an L-shape, extening far into the side walls and inclining towards the centre to support the dynamic look, while a high-tech touch is provided by the aeroblades – vertical air deflectors – behind the D-pillars.
