With the 1 Series hatch, and the 2 Series coupe and cabriolet having received recently revisions — we're reluctant to call them facelifts — the 2 Series Active Tourer looks to be next cab on the update rank.
As with these earlier 1 and 2 Series updates, exterior updates to the Active Tourer seem to be limited to detail changes to the front and rear bumpers, a lightly modified double kidney grille, and a squarer design for the car's angel eyes headlights.
We expect the car to sport changed tail-light graphics, alloy wheel designs, and a revised paint palette, although none of these items are present on this prototype.
If the 1 Series hatch and two-door 2 Series updates are anything to go by, the Active Tourer will gain, depending on model, bi-LED or full LED headlights, a standard SIM card slot, Apple CarPlay smartphone mirroring support, and Wi-Fi hot spot functionality.
The safety roster will likely be bolstered by autonomous emergency braking, capable of working at speeds up to 60km/h, with pedestrian detection. There will also likely be tweaks to the dashboard, instrument cluster, and interior trim.
Given how quickly the 1 Series and 2 Series updates were officially revealed after spy images appeared, we expect the Active Tourer update to be officially launched in the not-too-distant future.
