New BMW Streets Ahead Of Rivals

in Latest

THIS is BMW’s version of the Mercedes-Benz B-class, with a big dollop of brilliance.

In terms of shape and size, it is similar to its arch-rival’s tall hatch. But that is as far as the similarity goes.

Inside and out, the BMW 218i Active Tourer comes across as better designed, better built and much better equipped.

Oh, and it is also a lot more entertaining at the wheel. Which is a pleasant surprise, really, because the Active Tourer is BMW’s first front-wheel-driven car, a radical move that critics say will dilute the brand’s core values.
