The 2-series Gran Tourer [Official Thread] is a derivative of the Active Tourer and features both a taller and longer body. It also comes with third-row seating.

On display are the 220i M Sport and 220d xDrive models. Have a look from the show!

I said it before, it is a terrific time to be an automotive enthusiast. No longer do families have to settle for the practical, yet performance lacking minivans of yesteryear.
As a father (and long time BMW loyalist), I approve of this vehicle and its potential/paths it will undoubtedly trail-blaze.

They want to offer a boot for every size foot. And they will not stop until they have covered all sizes.

The family segment is shrinking? That's odd, mine has doubled in size over the last few years .

And BMW does it again. Porsche debuts the GT3RS and BMW gives the market this junk.

This is worse than I expected, and it has ///Mom badges all over it, lol.
That 220i Grand Tourer has a separated double exhaust, not even the X4 35i M Sport...

Looks not as good as the active tourer which i really like, but okay... when this car brings money for BMW, i have no problem with it.



But..... is there any reason for a BMW fan to visit geneva?
