Review

The BMW 2 Series Gran Tourer has frugal engines, but there are far more spacious MPVs for the money

get the best price

Trim: Luxury

Luxury trim also gets 17in alloy wheels, but it has a different set of visual upgrades inside and out to Sport models, as well as leather seats. Again, we’d save the cash and stick to entry-level SE trim.

Engine: 218i

Entry-level petrol is smooth and quiet while providing all the power you’ll need. It has to be worked reasonably hard to access its power, though, and because this is an MPV, we’d choose diesel.
