Predecessor BMW 1 series

The BMW 2 Series is a compact car produced by BMW. The 2-Series has several different body styles. It is available as a compact coupé that replaced the 1 Series coupé, or as a convertible model that replaces the 1 Series convertible in the BMW lineup. There is also a new compact MPV body style, which BMW refers to as an Active Tourer.

The 2-Series Active Tourer mechanicals are unrelated to the coupé and convertible models'. While it shares the 2-series name, it is built on a totally different front wheel drive platform that is shared with the 3rd generation MINI Cooper dubbed UKL1.

The 2-Series currently competes with new models from Audi and Mercedes-Benz, the A3 Sedan and the CLA Class, respectively, until BMW releases its own front wheel drive/ all wheel drive compact sedan.

In June 2015, BMW also released a seven-seater 2 Series Gran Tourer.[1]
