Expert review

The BMW 2 Series Active Tourer iPerformance is a plug-in hybrid petrol-electric version of the BMW 2 Series Active Tourer - it combines petrol and 'eDrive' electric power units together. That means BMW's MPV people carrier now has the potential for very frugal fuel economy. It's also got 4-wheel drive as standard. But is it a great all-rounder?
