BMW 2 Series Car Lease
Although it may seem rather disjointed that BMW employs the 2 Series badge across a conceptually diverse range of models, there is a degree of logic behind its decision. Despite this apparent mismatch, BMW claims that each member of its 2 Series family is very much designed with drivers in mind – and we would agree.
Essentially, the range is split into two distinct camps. On one side is the sportier and predominantly rear-wheel drive 2 Series Coupe and Convertible. On the other is the more practical, largely front-wheel drive 2 Series Active Tourer and Gran Tourer people carriers.
Add in the X2 SUV and the 2 Series badge has grown from nothing in the space of five years since it first launched in 2014.
By far the biggest 2 Series seller is the two-door, four-seater BMW 2 Series. Larger and consequently more practical than the 1 Series Coupe it replaced, the 2 Series Coupe has a range of frugal petrol and diesel engines paired with manual or automatic gearboxes.
Arriving a year after its coupe sibling, the BMW 2 Series convertible replaced the 1 Series model that came before it, with a line-up similar to that of the hard-top or a blistering M2.
Released in 2014, the BMW 2 Series Active Tourer was a complete departure from anything the German prestige brand has previously produced. Most obviously, it was BMW's first MPV, which rivalled the likes of the Mercedes-Benz B-Class, Renault's Scenic and the Volkswagen Golf SV. But what’s even more important was the car’s underpinnings – a predominantly front-wheel drive platform shared with the BMW X1 and MINI Countryman.
Finally, reaching the market in 2015 was the elongated version of the Active Tourer – the BMW 2 Series Gran Tourer. Its extra length and more perpendicular rear-end styling allow it to accommodate a pair of small, foldaway third row of seats, making it a ‘just-about’ seven-seater.
