Looking decidedly more aggressive than the standard model, the BMW 2 Series Active Tourer M Sport proves that with all the additions coming from its new M Sport package, you can turn the 2 Series Active Tourer into something that actually resembles an actual BMW .
To be fair, it’s not really the 2 Series’ fault that BMW wanted to extend its line to include a big hatchback that doesn’t do much in the way of exciting us. But the release of the M Sport package goes a long way in actually improving the 2 Series Active Tourer’s appeal and if anything, the vehicle needs it.
The most important part of the M Sport package is the M aerodynamics package. Notwithstanding all the handling benefits that the aero pack provides, the fact that it makes for a sportier and more aggressive look is enough incentive for customers to add on this package.
Customers can also have their vehicles dressed up in an exclusive Estoril Blue finish to complement all the M badging the car will have. If you didn’t know this baby was M’d up, the constant reminder of those badges on the side will remind you that this isn’t a normal-looking 2 Series Active Tourer.

BMW 2 Series Active Tourer M Sport in Detail
The modified bumpers, the larger air vents, and the high-gloss black double kidney grille are distinctively different from the standard model. Notice the sides too have sharper lines and deeper contours. These things may not be noticeable as much as they should, but those little things spell the difference between th car looking boring and looking like a BMW.
Another subtle upgrade are the chrome-trimmed tailpipes. Shiny, don’t you think?
The interior of the 2 Series Active Tourer now has some fancy M trims, including new door-sill finishers, a multifunction leather steering wheel, a footrest, a shift lever, BMW Individual’s anthracite roof liner, and blue contrast stitching in the instrument panel.
New sports seats have also been upholstered using what BMW says is a combination of “Micro Hexagon” fabric and Alcantara, or if you prefer something different, in black leather with blue stitching and M piping.
Available from November, the M Sport package stands out from the crowd and takes road presence to new levels. It includes the M aerodynamics package (with special front, rear and side body parts), a distinctive high-gloss black double kidney grille at the front of the vehicle and M Sport suspension with a 10-millimetre reduction in ride height for further improved driving dynamics.
Special 17 or 18-inch wheels, and the BMW Individual high-gloss Shadow Line window trim, round off this exclusive package. Customers can also specify Estoril Blue paintwork, which is exclusive to the M Sport package. M badging at the side, specially styled brakes and the chrome-trimmed tailpipes are further distinctive highlights of this package. Interior features like the M door sill finishers, the M multifunction leather steering wheel, M footrest, M shift lever, the BMW Individual anthracite roof liner and the blue contrast stitching in the instrument panel all contribute to a sporty ambience.
The sports seats are specially upholstered in a combination of “Micro Hexagon” fabric and Alcantara, or alternatively in black leather with blue stitching and M piping. The three-colour BMW M vehicle key adds the perfect finishing touch to an exceptional package.
