Yes, we get it. Purists hate the 2 Series Active Tourer because it goes against BMW's tradition of sending power to the rear wheels. But as we found out during a 340 km cross-country road trip, you won't really miss it. Not a little bit. Not even at all.
Laugh all you want, but the thought of having a front-wheel-drive BMW MPV might actually be one of the brightest ideas to come out of Munich in the last few years. Because lets face it, not everyone who buys a Bimmer today is looking for the 'ultimate rear-wheel-drive machine'.
