The progressive premium characteristics of the new BMW 2 Series Active Tourer are also underscored by its extensive standard equipment. It not only includes the BMW Maps navigation system, four USB-C connections and a 12-volt connection each on the center console and in the luggage compartment, intelligent 2-zone automatic air conditioning, a sports leather steering wheel and a rain sensor with automatic headlight control, but also also a significantly increased number of driver assistance systems compared to the previous model and a parking assistant with reversing camera. Newly structured equipment packages enable a particularly targeted individualization of the vehicle. High-quality interior trim strips are available, as are surfaces for the instrument panel and the front door panels in the Sensatec variant with distinctive contrasting stitching. A mirror package, ambient light, the panoramic glass roof and the Harman Kardon Sound System also contribute to increasing the premium characteristics.

To accomplish this, they now have an innovative system.
