As one of the first retail centres in the UK to take stock of the new model, the BMW 2 Series Gran Tourer now takes pride of place in the group's Bolton, Liverpool, Manchester, Rochdale and Stockport BMW showrooms.
The new BMW 2 Series Gran Tourer is the first premium compact model to offer up to seven seats and fully meet the mobility requirements of young families. Compact exterior dimensions go hand in hand with tremendous flexibility on the inside: a sliding second row of seats with adjustable backrest, a third row of seats that fold into the floor, and provision for up to five universal child seats are just some of the features on offer.
Available in a choice of five turbocharged petrol and diesel engines, with three or four-cylinders, the advanced powerplants offer superb efficiency and, in the case of the 220i and 220d, a 0-62mph time as low as 7.8 seconds. The 220d xDrive is also the only car in its class to team four-wheel drive with seven-seat capability.
The interior of the new BMW 2 Series Gran Tourer generates an airy feeling of space, combining a horizontal layering of surfaces and volumes with the hallmark BMW driver-centric design. A high seating position enhances all-round visibility; the visual demarcation between the centre console and the instrument panel actually gives the latter the appearance of floating in midair, while electroplated elements and large trim surfaces with accent strips exude a quality ambience.
Jason Almond, Williams Franchise Director commented: “The launch of the BMW 2 Series Gran Tourer was highly anticipated amongst the Williams BMW retail centres as we can now offer growing families a fantastic MPV option.
“We were thrilled to see a strong turnout from families over the weekend who wanted to see the new model. All of our retail centres have been busy with test drives and early orders for the car which is fantastic."
The BMW 2 Series Gran Tourer is on sale now and is priced from £23,395.
