The BMW 2 Series Active Tourer is the brand's little people mover, and the new model is on the way. It continues to use a front-wheel-drive focused platform, but the company would also offer all-wheel drive. The seven-seat Gran Tourer allegedly doesn't make the transition to the next generation.
While the Active Tourer will live to see a second generation, that’s not going to be the case with the seven-seat Gran Tourer model as BMW will discontinue the bigger version due to slow sales caused by the SUV craze. The surviving model will ride on the company’s FAAR platform used by the aforementioned 1 Series hatch and 2 Series GC from where the family car will adapt the interior to better suit a minivan. Its wheelbase might be stretched a bit for additional legroom closer to the Gran Tourer version, but that remains to be seen.
