The subsequent-generation BMW 2 Series Active Tourer looks like it might be a bit extra attention-grabbing than we initially thought. Regardless of being a front-wheel drive minivan, the next-gen 2 Collection AT is shaping as much as be a automotive that might truly be a bit much less uninteresting. New spy photographs have proven the two Collection AT with a brand new, sportier design that (dare I say it?) truly seems to be… good. (We don’t personal the spy photographs however they are often seen here)

Properly, it seems to be about nearly as good as a small minivan can look. Quite than wanting like a lame-duck folks mover, the second-generation BMW 2 Collection Lively Tourer seems to be extra like an enormous hot-hatchback. Actually, with camouflage on, it nearly seems to be like an enormous Ford Focus RS at a fast look. BMW followers may cringe at that comparability however a Focus RS is extra attention-grabbing than the last-gen 2AT, in order that’s truly a praise.

Up entrance, it will get fairly large new grilles, although they’re smaller and fewer absurd than these of the brand new four Collection. It additionally will get new, sharper wanting headlights, a slick roof spoiler and even subtly flared rear wheel arches. When it truly hits the street, it’s completely potential that it’s about as attention-grabbing to drive as a Yugo simulator however at the very least it’ll look attention-grabbing sufficient.

Boring as it might be, the BMW 2 Collection Lively Tourer is a good automotive for its prospects. It’s not designed to be enjoyable however to be a premium, snug and sensible folks mover. In that endeavor, the BMW 2AT has at all times been fairly profitable, which is why it’s offered so properly. So with higher seems to be and an improved driving expertise, even when it’s nonetheless boring for fanatics, the next-gen 2 Collection AT will doubtless be a really profitable automotive for the Bavarian model, particularly if it could electrify the little minivan.
