The company 2018-2019 BMW is able to frankly surprise with their new cars. It recently emerged coupe electric i3, then the world became acquainted with the amazing sport electric cars i8. And now what next? As it turned out, another unusual product has become the Bavarian compact minivan, designed to fit seven passengers, including the driver.
First of all, 2018-2019 BMW and minivans were previously generally incompatible concepts. But the market is growing, growing consumer demand, and therefore the companies that claim to be a world leader in the automotive manufacturing sector, it is necessary to try new niche, run a series of new cars for themselves classes.
Perhaps many of you are already familiar with the car 2018-2019 BMW 2-Series Active Tourer, Venom and compact, providing a space inside the cabin for five people. It is at its base and was built by Grand Tourer, but to add to it one more seat in the gallery.
In fact, the new Grand Tourer – is the same Active Tourer, with only a long wheelbase, as well as some other new features, which we’ll talk today with you in greater detail.

In fact, significant differences from Vienna in five-seven-seat variation no. Too much like cars. But it is impossible not to note how they cute and interesting.
The front part was the huge nostrils traditional Bavarian automaker, stylish trim grille, sloping hood, well-designed optics, which were widely used LED strip and enough classic fog lights round shape. In general, the car looks the front bumper with its weighty and distinct ducts very worthy.
Side view makes it clear how much the wheelbase has increased. The rear doors are much larger, increased glazing on the windows, the roof was higher, I purchased a flat line.
The rear part of the transformed compared with younger Venom through the use of a larger tailgate, modified optics and the most overall height of the vehicle.
In general, the machine looks very worthy, despite the fact that the family minivan in front of us. It is to this class of car and should be treated. But many manufacturers have had in recent years show that the once dull and gray minivans can have a superior design. 2018-2019 BMW followed the same path, presenting a good product with an attractive appearance.
And how much different 2018-2019 BMW 2-Series Gran Tourer on the dimensions of your soplatformennika? For example, the length has increased by 214 millimeters, and the wheelbase has increased by 110 millimeters. Not without changing the pitch, which has increased by 53 millimeters.

- length – 4556 mm;
- width – 1800 mm;
- height – 1608 mm;
- wheelbase – 2780 mm;
- ground clearance – 135 mm.
All this was done in order to be able to offer the customer one additional row of seats. It is important to note that this seven-seater minivan is arbitrary, since the last series is offered as an option. Basic had two rows of seats.
Unfortunately, the seven-seat modification will not please everyone. That’s because the gallery space was a little, and get to the third row of an adult will be very difficult. Plus low landing. It is ideal for small children, but the third row is not exactly designed for adults.
Interior 2018-2019 BMW 2 Series Gran Tourer

Also, the back row seatback folded, forming a perfectly flat loading area to 1905 liters.
Third row – a place for children and only. The presence of even a single seat for two passengers takes luggage space, leaving 560 liters and 1820 liters with the seats of different configurations.
